Simpson Gumpertz & Heger (SGH) invites you to a complimentary panel series at District Hall in downtown Boston. Hear from our industry expert panelists as they debate the benefits and challenges to implementing process and technology advancements to build successful projects in today's demanding design and
construction markets.
The last two decades have been characterized by significant advances in the technology and working methods used to design and construct buildings around the
world. With powerful new methods for realizing and coordinating designs in real time, it has never been easier to efficiently design highly customized projects that
have the potential to deliver substantial value to project stakeholders. In response to this new reality in the built environment, owners, designers, underwriters and
regulatory entities have started to embrace performance-based design as a means for managing a process that has opened up new opportunities, while exposing
potential pitfalls where time tested prescriptive approaches are displaced.
