    Our Happy Hour Networking events are always great, but this time we are adding a special twist. We invite attendees to participate in a dialogue about our next BIG IDEA- Integrated Design.


    Based on the understanding that conversation is the core process that drives personal, business, and organizational life, we are offering a special format to make new connections and mingle with old friends over fresh topics of conversation!


    Integrated Design is method of having everyone involved in a project collaborating from the project's inception. For buildings, conventional planning, design, construction and operations processes often fail to emphasize connections and improving communication among professionals from different disciplines or phases of the project. 


    Skills from the Integrated Design approach can apply to more than just the building industry:


       - Critical Thinking & Questioning

       - Collaboration

       - Teamwork & Communication

       - Understanding of Natural Processes


    Our facilitated group discussions will give you a chance to learn about the Integrated Design process. Share ideas and experiences, and learn from others, during this special happy hour event.


    Agenda

    5:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Check-in and Networking

    6:00 p.m. - 6:45 p.m. Integrated Design Facilitated Group Discussions

    6:45 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. Networking
