Raising the Roof: The Story Behind SoFi Stadium’s Colossal Canopy Enclosure
Thursday, October 13th  |  2:15 PM - 3:15 PM MST

Hosted by CSI National Conference

REGISTER


WPM Presenter:

Kais Al-Rawi, AIA

The monumental roof canopy of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA, spans over three state-of-the-art venues with a total area of more than a million square feet. It features a lightweight, transparent ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE) enclosure that addresses a range of design and performance criteria. This presentation will provide intriguing insights into the design, engineering, and construction processes and innovations developed to manage the roof enclosure’s massive scale and complexity—including the use of digital workflows and 3D modeling and analysis workflows from concept to fabrication.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize why the ETFE roof is an integral part of the stadium design.
  • Identify the properties of ETFE that led to its selection for this project.
  • Describe the architecture and engineering issues that had to be considered in the roof design.
  • Outline the construction process used to install the ETFE roof panels and how digital design and computational workflows streamlined design to fabrication.

So, You Think a Teaming Agreement is Too Much Trouble
Thursday, November 3rd  |  9:45 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Hosted by Design-Build Institute of America

REGISTER


WPM Speaker:

Lee Slade, PE

Teaming Agreements, the legal arrangement that covers the pre-award phase of project pursuits, are one of the most important, variable and least understood elements of the design-build process. Too many teams skip this important step or give it short shrift, jumping into the project pursuit phase without aligning on how their firms will work together, share risk, share stipends and costs and cope with project realities in a fair manner. A well-crafted Teaming Agreement can pave the way for a successful pursuit, efficient negotiation of the Subsequent Agreement and seamless project delivery. In this session, members of DBIA’s National Design Professionals’ Advisory and Engagement Committee will share their perspectives and recommendations about why and how to achieve effective Teaming Agreements. Each draws on decades of successful design-build experience and lessons learned while bringing a distinct perspective characteristic of their different role in the team.


Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize why the ETFE roof is an integral part of the stadium design.
  • Identify the properties of ETFE that led to its selection for this project.
  • Describe the architecture and engineering issues that had to be considered in the roof design.
  • Outline the construction process used to install the ETFE roof panels and how digital design and computational workflows streamlined design to fabrication.


Additional Speakers:

  • Sean Gellhaus PE, DBIA, HNTB Corporation
  • Robert Barbera DBIA, PE, SVP, Turner Construction Company
  • Hollice Stone PE, Stone Security Engineering, PC
  • Rachel John ESQ Assoc, DBIA, Zetlin and De Chiara LLP

Design Build Essentials for Complex Healthcare Projects
Thursday, November 3rd  |  3:00 PM - 4:15 PM PDT

Hosted by Design-Build Institute of America

REGISTER


WPM Speakers:

Melissa Shea, PE
Ryan Seckinger, PE, LEED AP

What are the key elements of an ideal process for procuring, designing, building, and activating large, complex healthcare facilities with design build? This panel discussion brings relevant perspectives from Owner, Program Manager, Builder, and Designer based on the team’s recent completion of VCU Health’s Adult Outpatient Pavilion (AOP) in Richmond, Virginia. Key topics will include owner preparation, team selection, project scope and validation, achieving design objectives, delivery opportunities and challenges, and team differences in mindset and behavior unique to design build. Elements of the Design Build Done Right best practices and individual real-world experience are blended for fresh insight. The new AOP consolidates outpatient adult specialty services on the academic medical center campus bringing together the Massey Cancer Center and multi-disciplinary Shared Clinics into a multi-faceted facility designed to achieve LEED Silver. The 19-story, 615,000 SF building is integrated with a 425,000 square foot parking structure including 1,000+ vehicles. The predominately glass tower is highly visible in the downtown Richmond, Virginia skyline maximizing views and natural daylight on all while promoting a welcoming environment for family-centered care and collaboration. The vision for this new 1M SF translational hub for clinical excellence transforms the outpatient VCU Health brand and experience.


Additional Speakers:

  • Brian Brown CHC, LEED AP, Vice President, Hourigan Construction
  • Sandra Tkacz, Vice President, HDR
  • Jake Hughes, Vice President, JLL
