On Demand through March 29, 2018

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

At the heart of every project is the site. Everything else—scoping, conceptual design, financing, design development, tender, award, construction, handover—comes only after the site has been identified and secured. And what sets project visionaries apart is their ability to perceive a site’s exceptional characteristics in the context of its surroundings, secure it, and then lead the entire team to keep that data in the forefront and leverage it through design and execution.

 

Today’s project visionaries have advantages over those of the past because they can see and share, almost in real time, the kind of imagery that anchors design development into real landscapes from the start, and then can keep that pictorial vision evolving as the plans and work progress.
