If you are going to the AIA Conference on Architecture 2019 in Las Vegas on June 6-8, consider attending one of these two timely sessions presented by our Cameron MacAllister Group consultants.

 

Smarter Clients, Better Projects: The New Managing Uncertainty Database (TH105)

Westgate Las Vegas, Pavilion 9, 3000 Paradise Road – 1.00 LU/RIBA

Thursday, June 6, 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.

 

Cameron MacAllister Group’s Clark Davis, FAIA, will co-lead an informative session that gives AIA members the first opportunity to learn about the new Managing Uncertainty cost database. This resource removes some uncertainty from the design and construction process as it provides actual project cost experience searchable by project type, size, and other parameters. The database supports the Project Planning Guide introduced at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2018 and is endorsed by AIA, the Large Firm Round Table, and other industry organizations. In this session, attendees will learn how to contribute to the new database and learn preliminary findings about project risk factors, costs, and process improvements.

 

The Fourth National Climate Assessment: What it Means for You (TH118)

Las Vegas Convention Center, Room N212 – 1.00 LU/HSW/GBCI/RIBA

Thursday, June 6, 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.

 

Cameron MacAllister Group’s Mary Ann Lazarus, FAIA, LEED Fellow, will co-lead an interactive session with Ann Kosmal, FAIA, U.S. General Services Administration, contributors to the Fourth National Climate Assessment Volume II, the authoritative source on climate impacts and risks, released in late 2018. This unique opportunity enables AIA members to engage with these authors in-person as they highlight the ecological, societal, and economic impacts of climate change across the United States, notably their effect on the built environment and solutions for adaptation.
