About the Event
The Life of a Project Series continues with a discussion of Pre-Construction Considerations from a Design and Constructor’s Perspective featuring Lesli Swanson, LEED AP, Senior Construction Manager with Ahtna Global, and Michael Fredericks, AIA, President of SALT, a design firm. Their collaborative work on the Cook Inlet Housing Association’s Eklutna Estates Senior Housing will be one example of a pre-construction success story that will be discussed.
Join the NAWIC Alaska Chapter for this special program where Lesli and Michael will share their experiences and “lessons learned” in developing pre-construction plans and implementing the start-up of all project types.
This is a hybrid event and you have the option to join us in-person or online! Everyone will receive a Zoom link after you register. If you chose to join in-person, we will be delighted to see you at Gallo's Mexican Restaurant located at 8615 Old Seward Hwy.
