February Program – Design vs Facilities Maintenance (DL Heather Platt)
February 20, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$15 – $100
Design firms are being pushed by clients to save time and money, but in doing so we run the risk of providing the code minimum design or not spending the right amount of time investigating current conditions. This leaves projects that end up costing a lot more time and money for both the engineer and owner. The presentation digs into some of these issues based on actual project results.
- Understand the downstream operational impacts of code minimum design
- Develop an understanding of some facility operational issues
- Improve design practices from lessons learned
