The Plenary Symposium will cover two of the key outcomes expected from Building Innovation 2016: an examination of what it takes to achieve a resilient future and a vision on how all the information presented throughout the week comes together to achieve high-performance buildings and communities.
Gain valuable insights into what works for achieving resilience during a session on High Performance from Design to Operations: A Discussion with the Dunbar High School Project Team. Founded in 1870 as the Preparatory High School for Colored Youth, Dunbar High School, located in Washington, D.C., was the country’s first public high school for African Americans. A new award-winning campus opened in 2013 to replace a 1970’s building that didn’t meet the prestige of its influential alumni. Representatives from numerous disciplines on the project will present lessons learned during the design, construction and operations of this LEED Platinum project.
During the second session, the Institute’s President Henry L. Green will present Achieving a Resilient Future: A Report from the Cutting Edge to give attendees a recap of the week’s program and present the Institute’s vision on how an industry-wide collaboration can work to successfully achieve high-performance buildings and communities. After a week of exciting presentations and discussions on how the industry is progressing towards a resilient future, President Green will present a vision for achieving high-performance buildings and communities. Through work both inside and outside of the Institute, the industry is making great strides. See how the pieces come together in this exciting close to Building Innovation 2016.
