PLENARY SESSION:
CROSS-DISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION IN BUILT ENVIRONMENT PRACTICE

Facilitated By:
Prof. Renee Cheng, Dean of the UW College of Built Environments

Featuring:
Representatives from each of the five professional advisory councils within the UW College of Built Environments, this panel will provide a forum to discuss cross-disciplinary collaboration in built environment practice.

  • Rob Warnaca:
    Construction Industry Advisory Council (CIAC)
  • Peter Orser:
    Real Estate Advisory Board (RE-AB)
  • Kate Freels:
    Architecture Professionals Advisory Council (ARCH-PAC)
  • Craig Skipton:
    Landscape Architecture Professional Advisory Council (LA-PAC)
  • Mandi Roberts:
    Urban Design and Planning Professionals Council (UDP-PC)

Premise:
The greatest benefits from interdisciplinary work in practice comes when each discipline contributes something (expertise, ways of thinking, approach, method, resource, etc.) that is relatively unique to make the team and project better, more innovative, more resilient, safer and healthier.  At the same time, the differences between the conventions and culture of each area can make it challenging to communicate and come to agreement.

Each panelist will share stories that illustrate the benefits and challenges of interdisciplinary practice, discussion amongst the panel and response to audience questions will follow.

“Under Fire:  Mix Design & Concrete Performance”
Presented By:

Associate Professor, UW Department of Construction Management

[su_divider top=”no” size=”2″ margin=”5″]
Post-earthquake fire (PEF) is a relatively frequent disaster, but its damage on concrete is complicated and is usually affected by uncertain factors. The 1906 San Francisco and the 1923 Tokyo earthquakes caused severe damage due to the ground shaking; however, damage and losses from the subsequent fires reportedly exceeded damage from the shaking itself. On a smaller scale, hundreds of fires were reported after the 1989 Loma Prieta, 1994 Northridge, and 1995 Kobe earthquakes. Although no widespread destructive fire occurred after these earthquakes, in Kobe alone almost 7,000 buildings were damaged by fire. Considering the risk of fire either locally within buildings or conflagrations after an earthquake, the effects of seismic damage on the fire resistance of structural members need to be better understood for resilient structural design.

To increase the efficiency of concrete structures, the use of high-strength concrete is desirable, especially in bridges, tall buildings, and concrete tunnel linings. However, high-strength concrete shows very brittle behavior in compression, and is prone to spalling in case of fire. The presence of fibers can increase the fracture toughness (or the ductility) in compression, and also reduce the risk of fire spalling.

On the other hand, high porous concretes show excellent resistance in the presence of high temperatures, and fail in a more brittle manner under compression. As the water/binder ratio of such concretes is generally high, their compressive strength reduces. For this reason, the aim of this research project is to investigate, both at ordinary and high temperatures, the performances of concretes having different water/binder ratios (and thus strengths), porosities, and fiber content. The aim is to optimize the composition of concrete in order to have the highest strength in conjunction with the best fire resistance and post-peak ductility.[/su_spoiler]

“New Safety and Productivity Paradigms in Off-Site Construction”

Given the promise of productivity gains, cost-effectiveness, and environmental efficiency, new off-site construction solutions are shaping not only the means of production and assembly for buildings, but also the extended population of workers and their job conditions.  While the widespread belief is that the impacts from prefabrication will yield safer conditions when compared to traditional methods, there is little evidence, often contradictory, to support such claim.  This session will review the foundation of knowledge on prefabrication, and reexamine the problems associated with occupational risk and project performance through an integrated lens.

Buildings in the U.S. consume 70% of electricity and account for 40% of carbon emissions, thus green building development offers a great potential to reverse the trend of global climate change. In response, cities, states, and the federal government have promoted and endorsed green building projects through various approaches, including: codes, regulations, policies, and incentives. As a result, market leaders have developed green building practices and achieved higher levels of building sustainability and performance as a way to cope with increasing global challenges. Despite the increasing level of interest in green building development in recent years, little is reported about how the municipal and federal mandates have affected green building development in reality. To this end, this session will present the impact of codes, regulations, and policies on the design practices and market performance of green buildings based on case studies and macroeconomic analysis.

“USACE Advanced Modeling Requirements: Necessary Tools to Complete the Job”

The broad topics of BIM/CIM/GIS demand clear and well-defined requirements to help ensure the project is executed as expected. Without specific requirements, what an owner expects versus what they receive often differs. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) in conjunction with industry leaders work collaboratively as a group through a Consortia to develop mutually beneficial Advanced Modeling requirements. This session will highlight the toolbox of Documents, Templates, Tools, Checklists, and Guides that have been developed to enable Advanced Modeling goals of USACE and other Department of Defense agencies, and what is currently planned for the future.

“Frontiers of Asset Data Standards in Practice”

The Corps of Engineers “COE” recently announced an enterprise-wide initiative to treat data as a strategic asset.  In the broad ecosystem of data processing systems present in any small, medium, or large organization there are significant challenges to realizing that seemingly straightforward vision.  Experiences in asset data standardization in practice are discussed with overviews of developments in the following existing and emerging initiatives: NBIMS-US (National BIM Standard), COE Facility Data Exchange, SeaRAD (Seattle-area Regional Asset Data Standards).
