Beyond the Integrated Design Process: Case Studies in Teamwork from Design through Post-Occupancy

Oregon Convention Center: Room A105-A106
Track: Case Studies

The pursuit of the Living Building Challenge requires creative problem-solving and a multi-disciplinary team rooted in authentic communication – clear and open dialogue that allows for healthy conflict and results in shared action towards a common goal.  While most of us work in team environments there is rarely discussion about how to create highly functioning teams that achieve complex goals like the Living Building Challenge (LBC).  Through the lens of three case studies of various scales, project delivery types, and ownership models, this session will explore the why and how of creating integrated teams with strong communication and the ability to overcome the difficulties and roadblocks commonly seen in LBC projects.
