The OHS opened its new 40,000 square foot shelter in 2011. It was nearly on-time and was under budget, but some of the lessons learned were painful. This workshop will share the lessons learned in costing and financing , planning, design, materials and the thousands of other details that went into the project. Discussion will include working with architects, contractors and other consultants and the processes for each, as well as the many potential pitfalls in these roles and relationships.
Participants will receive an extended tour of the OHS shelter, with an opportunity to discuss materials, equipment and design elements hands on and in real time.
