Becoming a Performance Driven Firm

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH: AIA-St. Louis

Being a top firm is about much more than getting design awards. The design community is recognizing that excellence is about design AND performance. This is reflected in the recently revised AIA Committee on the Environment’s Top Ten awards,  which now emphasizes the importance of actual building performance in addition to project’s design intent.

Is your firm consistently delivering high-performance buildings? Whether or not projects are LEED certified, you can develop internal systems and processes to ensure high performance projects across your portfolio. Successful companies realize improved project performance, increased profits and happier clients through performance-driven design.

This session will share frameworks, roadmaps and proven methodologies from successful firms to help attendees assess their current situation, identify strategic areas for improvement, and develop change management strategies to ensure widespread adoption of new processes and project delivery methodologies for continuous improvement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify common problems that limit a firm’s ability to drive high performance through their projects.

  • Explore proven methodologies to integrate performance into project outcomes.

  • Access tools and resources for direct application in participants’ work to foster effective change management.

  • Discover a clear roadmap and steps that apply to all firms no matter where they are in the process.

Flance Learning Center opened to students in June 2014, and aims to be an exemplary early
learning center, serving children of all incomes and backgrounds, six-weeks to six-years of age in a new, $11.5 million facility. The center’s design team placed heavy emphasis on ensuring that indoor and outdoor spaces were resource-efficient, free of toxins, healthy for students, comfortable for teachers, and cost-effective.  In recognition of this emphasis on health and environmental
sustainability, Flance Center is registered to become only the 4th LEED for Schools Certified
Preschool in the world.   Universal Design features are also incorporated to create a convenient
experience for staff and students, regardless of physical ability, thereby creating an environment in which special-needs and typical-needs children can thrive side-by-side in the same classrooms.
