• November Dinner Meeting - San Francisco
    As the Bay Area population continues to expand, transbay travel increasingly taxes the capacity of our transit systems. Robert Mitroff, the Chief Planning and Development Officer for BART, will be speaking to us about the long range planning options for the BART system, and their projections on development of transit. As BART carries increasing riders, they are looking at the need for major investments to modify the BART system, improvements, and alternative transportation methods. Join us the day after casting your vote to hear about BART’s future in the Bay!

    Please register by November 4!

  • President's Message - August 2016

    Thanks to everyone who made our year just closed successful and full of promise for the upcoming 12 months. We’ll miss our outgoing Board members, Liesl Morell and Peg Collins – but we hope to see them often at our meetings and events. Our new Board members are Sally Anderson of SOM, and Derek Payne of Kingspan. We look forward to their new ideas and participation in our efforts this year. Our July meeting brought together over 100 participants from the San Francisco and Santa Clara Valley Chapters, and from DBIA. Partnering with the Design Build Institute of America brought attendees from design, engineering and construction companies, so there were many new faces. The presentation was thought provoking: a case study of the new control tower at the San Francisco international Airport, and a discussion of a progressive approach to design/build delivery that brings owner, end users, designers, and contractors together to develop the project concept and budget collaboratively from the start. The speakers represented a range of perspectives, and the audience was full of questions.
