INTEGRATED PROJECT DELIVERY: Virtual Design to Construction 

2011 Summer / Fall Series

No matter which part of the building industry you are in, one of the best ways to differentiate yourself is by offering products and services that set you apart from your competition. Join this DESIGN [realized] Event to hear from two firms who have done just that. Learn how The Beck Group transitioned into an Integrated Design, Construction & Real Estate group. See how Lucchesi Galati developed a new practice model based on "learning" and "living" with the integration of built, social, and natural environments.

Topic:

New Practice Model based on “learning” and “living” with integration of built, social, and natural environments.

About the Speaker:

Raymond J. Lucchesi, AIA, LEED AP, is the founding Principal of Lucchesi Galati. He has over 35 years of experience in the profession of architecture with an emphasis on arid region and sustainable design. Ray received his professional architectural degree, with an emphasis in arid region and passive-solar design, from Arizona State University.  He is registered in several states and NCARB Certified. He served as the founding director, and a professor and instructor at the UNLV School of Architecture for 23 years. Ray served as the President of AIA Las Vegas and AIA Nevada component chapters, and was awarded the Silver Medal from AIA Nevada, the highest honor given to an individual architect in Nevada for outstanding contributions to the profession and the citizens of the state.

He also provides consulting and facilitation services to major organizations in the identification and advancement of their sustainable agenda and programs, including the integration of the organization’s social and cultural agendas. Ray is currently involved in several projects seeking LEED Certification, including the Las Vegas Springs Preserve Desert Living Center and Garden, which received LEED Platinum Certification. Ray is a founding member of the Nevada Chapter of the USGBC, AIA COTE, and the Las Vegas NAIOP Sustainability Committee.

The firm is currently developing a new practice model based on “learning” and “living” in contrast to “earning” and “working” – with a proposition that offers the integration of the built, social, and natural environments into a holistic “place” of meaning.
