Building Transparency: Straight Talk in the A/E/C Community

How do traditional barriers and myths stop project teams from delivering better projects and excelling in Seattle’s busy market?

During this full-day forum, AIA Seattle hopes to pull back the curtain on the unique perspectives, internal pressures, and decision-making frameworks of building professionals, their clients and their partners – owners, developers, architects, contractors, financier, and others. Through candid conversations, it focuses on the myths compromising collaboration between project members and explore forward-thinking partnerships, non-traditional strategies for building teams, and innovative contractual models emerging in the field. These insights could lead to better alignment of the project team and more constructive collaboration through clarity on the members’ immovables, expectations and priorities for the project. Through presentations by owners, architects, contractors, and others, participants will gain insightful knowledge and strategies to forge stronger relationships with each other with the long-term effect of increased effectiveness, profitability, and innovation.
