Commitment, collaboration, communication and compromise

ON DEMAND THROUGH AUGUST 26, 2022

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

Building and construction are responsible for 38% of all carbon emissions in the world. This webinar will present the latest strategies, materials and technologies used to create buildings with lower embodied and operational carbon by looking at the new Meyer Memorial Trust headquarters in Portland, Ore. Representatives of the building team, including the owner, the architect and the contractor, will talk about the challenges common to many super-sustainable building projects and the solutions to those challenges.

They will also address how teams working on environmentally responsible buildings need to shift into a culture that fosters interdisciplinary commitment, collaboration, communication and compromise.

The content of this webinar is produced and directed by ENR's editorial team.

LEVER Architecture

Chandra Robinson, a Principal at LEVER Architecture, will present Meyer Memorial Trust a new LEED Platinum campus for a foundation that invests in change at the systemic level to ease inequities and disparities. The project leveraged an equity-centered design approach that impacted every choice from team composition to material sourcing to create opportunity for BIPOC and women-owned businesses. Working in close collaboration with a local fabricator, the team transformed ordinary sheet metal into a distinctive façade that appears custom. This innovative and economical approach makes unique metal facades more accessible to a great range of project types and budgets.
