Judson J. McIntire, AIA, NCARB, LEED GA, program executive for the newly opened National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) on the National Mall, will serve as opening keynote speaker for Building Innovation 2017: The National Institute of Building Sciences Fifth Annual Conference and Expo, to be held Jan. 9-12 in Washington, D.C.
McIntire managed the scope, schedule, and $540 million budget for the 400,000-sq-ft museum, from planning and design through construction. He was instrumental in forging a construction-manager at-risk delivery method for the NMAAHC project, an innovation for the Smithsonian.
During the opening keynote breakfast on Jan. 10, McIntire will discuss how the NMAAHC’s team of architects, contractors, consultants, federal agencies, and Smithsonian representatives worked together to deliver the most sustainable national museum ever constructed.
Building Innovation 2017 will include 16 sessions worth a total of 24.5 learning units from The American Institute of Architects. To view the full schedule of events, click here. To register, click here.
