The planning, design, and construction team will illustrate their integrated approach. We will explain integrated planning, design, and construction practices used on this new innovation center in a dense downtown urban environment and how the building will serve Wentworth’s academic needs. Topics covered include:an integrated approach to planning and permitting, how the design makes this a gamechanger for Wentworth’s curriculum, and essential techniques for building in urban environments.
