Share Article

The interactive event is targeted to a wide variety of professionals in the construction community, including public and private owners, developers, construction managers, contractors, subcontractors, consultants, architects, engineers, and facility or property managers.

WPL Publishing soon will sponsor a webinar to help various types of construction professionals identify the pros and cons of an integrative approach to projects involving high-performance buildings.

The webinar, entitled “Integrative Project Management for Sustainable Construction Projects,” will address the common and unique challenges of such projects as they related to goal-setting, charrette facilitation, team selection, responsibility allocation, ongoing training, and scheduling. During design, construction, and operations phases, teams working on a sustainable project can benefit greatly from an integrative approach. The webinar will frame that approach in a way that will be simple for attendees to take and apply to their own projects, regardless of the phase. From project concept through hand-off and into operations, this event will provide attendees with an overview of the tools and strategies necessary for successfully delivering a high-performance-building project. To register for the 90-minute webinar, scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012, at 1:00 p.m. (EST), visit http://tinyurl.com/6olmmdx.

Professionals attending the webinar will learn how to do the following:

  • Identify the pros and cons of an integrative approach to enhance the cost effectiveness and end value of a high-performance-building project.
  • Implement best practices for managing a sustainable building.
  • Evaluate the tools and strategies needed to successfully deliver high-performance-building projects.
  • Select the goals and the best team to accomplish those goals.
  • Allocate responsibility to avoid surprises halfway into the project.
  • Provide ongoing training to ensure their teams have the skill sets to perform successfully.
  • Schedule a high-performance-building project.

Addressing attendees will be Kelly Gearhart, a founder and principal with the international green building consulting firm Triple Green Building Group. Her company provides expertise to professionals involved in design, construction, and building operations, governments, corporate entities, and nonprofit organizations seeking approaches to building and development through sustainable project planning and design, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design consulting and administration, education, and training.

Following Ms. Gearhart’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
