Although architects, engineers, land surveyors, and geologists are the only "design professionals" on most construction projects, they by no means have exclusive control over the project "design." Depending on the project participants, project, and project delivery method, there can be numerous and frequent external influences on the project design including from clients, the public, contractors, suppliers, manufacturers, and more. The challenge is to maintain the integrity of the professional design services while still collaborating in the overall team process for the client. This seminar will explore the management of the professional design process in concert with external influences and then provide real world examples and strategies to manage the interface and limitations in four major areas of interplay.
- Develop Strategies and Tools to Master Client & Public Commitment and Direction
- Develop Procedures and Tools to Facilitate the Design Team Role/Collaboration/Coordination
- Manage Outside Design and Performance Influences and Controls from Contractors and Manufacturers
- Identify and Manage the Four Primary Challenges to the Pure Design Domain
