DLI Class #5 Review – Architecture / Design / Engineering

NAIOP Developing Leaders recently attended their Architecture class sponsored by Martin-arris Construction and held at the Cushman & Wakefield office. The class was treated to insights and expertise from Jennifer Turchin, Principal of Coda Group, Chris Larsen, Principal of PGAL, LLC along with Julie Cleaver, Vice President, Planning & Design at The Howard Hughes Corporation.

The class learned about the role of the architect, building design versus urban design and the design process in addition to reviewing case studies from local projects. Jennifer spoke in-depth about the architectural process and different types of contracts. Chris provided acumen on some of the current large scale projects including, the convention selection process, the College of Southern Nevada expansion and on-going hotel renovations. Julie spoke on space planning, parking, landscape, and the importance of scenery, ingress/egress and logistical portions of a project.

Now four months into their year-long DLI Program, this group of young leaders are excited to begin work on their class projects!
