Over 50 of you attended our Partnering NetWorkshop at San Francisco International Airport on September 15th. Our panelists included executives from the T1 team: Geoff Neumayr, Chief Development Officer at San Francisco International Airport; Carsten Voecker, Director at Woods Bagot; Tom Taylor, Vice President at Webcor Builders; and Kent DeRusha, Project Director at Austin Commercial Aviation (pictured in the following photo by Jeff Rumans Photography). They shared the elements, strengths, and best practices of SFO's Partnering program, and how Collaborative Partnering is applied on their co-located design-build project.ntwkshp-32
