Beyond Sustainability – Steps Project Managers Have Identified to Mitigate Real Estate Risk Through Resiliency Planning

By Robin Dorogusker

First, let me tell you who I am not.  I am not an environmental scientist, a climatologist, or an expert in resiliency.  I am not on any committees for climate change at the federal, state or local level.  I’ve not been studying climate change for years.  I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination.  However, I am a member of our real estate community.  I’m a program planner and a project manager – representing owners who are designing and building commercial real estate projects for their organizations.

cGMP Design and Construction – Best Practices

By Brian Lynch

Most of my career in the planning, design, construction, and operations of buildings has been in the pharmaceutical research & development industry. For nearly 15 years, I was fortunate to work for a corporation who valued functionality, flexibility, and design in (nearly) equal regard – and had the leadership and resources to back it up.
