Last week, we had the pleasure of having Alan Scott, FAIA, LEED Fellow, LEED AP BD+C, O+M, WELL AP, CEM, and senior consultant with Intertek Building Science Solutions, appear on METALCONLive! as a panelist. Alan serves as a consultant for architects and designers and is a regular columnist for Metal Architecture Magazine. In a recent article, Post-COVID Crystal Ball: How Might This Pandemic Influence Design, Alan advises, “it is not too soon to consider how the 2020 pandemic might influence how we design our built environment.”
METALCONLive! made a robust return this week with a peek into the “future.” Normally we would be gathering for the annual, in-person event this month — METALCONLive! makes it possible to be together “virtually.” As Director Judy Geller said in her opening remarks, “We can’t have our live event as usual, but that doesn’t mean we have abandoned our mission of bringing together buyers, sellers, manufacturers and suppliers of metal for use in design and construction.”
Moderator, Frank Stasiowski, FAIA and METALCON Co-Founder in partnership with the Metal Construction Association, along with a “blue-ribbon” panel of experts, tackled the issues surrounding market changes for the construction and metal construction industry, and what to expect heading into next year.
Panelists included Tony Bouquot, General Manager, Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA), Paul Giovannoni, Managing Director, FMI Corporation, and Alan Scott, FAIA, LEED Fellow, Senior Consultant, Building Science Solutions at Intertek. Unfortunately Dr. Sarah Skidmore, Leadership Development Consultant and Executive Coach with Skidmore Consulting, had to cancel due to illness. We wish her well and hope to welcome her on a future MCLive! program.Continue reading
