HFA is excited to announce its upcoming webinar, "Designing for Future Flexibility: A+E Best Practices for Industrial Development," taking place on May 17th, 2023, at 11 am CST. The hourlong webinar will provide valuable insights and expert guidance on the most recent industry trends and best practices for designing logistics projects that can cater to a diverse range of potential occupants.
The webinar will be presented by Marc Jennings, R.A., VP of Logistics, and Garrett Small, P.E., Civil + Landscape Lead, who together bring decades of architecture and engineering experience.
In today's constantly evolving industrial landscape, it’s crucial for developers to invest in facilities that can remain relevant and adaptable in the face of emerging technologies and market demands. In this webinar, attendees will gain valuable insights and practical advice on designing flexible spaces that can adapt to changing conditions and evolving tech. The event will also highlight the latest trends and changes in the industrial sector, with a specific focus on automation and robotics, and the distinct challenges and opportunities they present.
“This webinar is also an opportunity to talk about infrastructure planning, and how you design for end-user needs that change over time,” said Jennings said. “Prioritizing flexible design practices is crucial to maximizing the potential of investments in new construction or adaptive re-use and ensuring the broadest range of future tenants can be accommodated.”
