The world is getting smarter: Smart phones, smart cars, smart devices, and smart cards are the new norm. If our buildings don’t become smarter too, they’ll fall behind in today’s technology-driven world. Smart buildings are popping up across the U.S. and the trend is just beginning: Smart building investment is expected to triple from $5.5 billion in 2012 to $18 billion by 2017, according to The Op-Ex Advantage, a recent JLL report.

The use of technology has leveled the playing field. The changing nature of business increasingly favors partnerships including working partnerships, joint ventures and associations between affiliated companies. Layer in the fact that construction and development projects have become more complex, more risky, and require more process to bring the team into alignment.
While sociologists claim we're social animals meant to work together, any project team manager will tell you that cooperation is a learned skill. What processes enable teams of human beings to work effectively and optimize a deal?
Smart Building & Smart Partnerships will address these questions and more:
- Why add partnerships to an already expensive, complex construction investment?
- What is Collaborative Partnering Model for construction and what is its Return on Investment (ROI)?
- How does the technology affect a construction partnering commitment?
Please join us for an enlightening discussion and lively networking.
