As a followup discussion to the May 14th "Return to the Office: A Shared Discussion for Architecture Firms" webinar, AIA Michigan and AIA Detroit will co-host another virtual panel focusing on the an aspect of the architect's work that is already in the process of reopening: project sites, whether or not under construction.
The May 21st conversation will be led not just by architects, but also contractors, many of whom have already implemented plans and are in the process of returning to work. Each panelist will bring their own thoughts and experiences in visiting and working at active sites where social distancing is more difficult and is layered on top of existing job site safety standards.

Panelists Include:
·      Robert Hoida, AIA Michigan Vice President & Architect | Hobbs+Black Architects
·      Ryan Maibach, Michigan Economic Recovery Council Member & CEO | Barton Malow
·      Todd McDonald, Chief Operations Officer & Principal | The CSM Group
·      Matt Christie, AIA Grand Rapids President & Architect Ghafari
