Investing in People, Processes & Technology to Drive ROI for Design Collaboration

Design collaboration within your project team can create cost, time, and performance efficiencies as well as identify scaling opportunities for long-term partnerships. Your collaboration strategy should start before you even begin thinking about the design project, by first, understanding your own needs and responsibilities, and then how these align with those of your partners.

Advancing Design Collaboration 2023 is North America’s only dedicated forum uniting forward-thinking designers, contractors and clients to confront the ongoing challenges with establishing, optimizing and maintaining collaborative design environments head on.

Why should you attend?

  • Create the Ideal Collaborative Environment from the Outset

During our Pre-Conference Workshop Day you will exchange experiences with your peers on what makes a productive partnering session, and learn how to formulate collective goals, and the soft skills needed to accomplish them.

  • Leverage Technology for Better Communication & Design Alignment

Better technology integration has allowed project teams to streamline communication and create shared project hubs. Learn how to formulate your data management strategy to ensure ease of access to project information and design consistency on a project team level.

  • Understand the Impact of Contract Choice on Collaboration Processes

When the contract is chosen based on an accurate assessment of project attributes, it can perfectly complement your collaboration strategy. Understand how contract models impact responsibilities, cooperation, and the relative merits of different project delivery frameworks.

  • Understand What Makes Collaborative Design Work in Practice

See how Herrero Builders have overcome issues with supply chain and procurement, how Mortenson Construction integrated budgets in their designs, and how Mark III Construction sought manufacturing insights for prefabrication solutions, to name a few.

  • Expand Your Network & Explore Future Partnership Opportunities

You will have the opportunity to network with 100+ collaboration-oriented designers, contractors, and owners through panels, audience discussions, and networking sessions. In this way, you will learn from the experience of others as well as connect with prospective partners.
