We challenge the design and construction industry to JOIN IN with like-minded champions to transform the way we all design and build.
We offer the platform and leadership to facilitate collaboration, and fund current initiatives from Charles Pankow’s generous original endowment, combined with funding and resources from our industry partners. JOIN IN to help grow our reach and impact.
Board member Ron Klemencic, winner of the 2018 ENR Award of Excellence, challenges our industry to invest two percent of profits toward practical research and innovation.
CONTRIBUTE IN-KIND SERVICES & MATERIALS
Supply the building blocks for meaningful projects.
Our work is accomplished through the generous involvement of a wide swath of the design and construction industry. In-kind contributions come in many forms: from participation on expert panels through construction of large-scale field and laboratory tests. Participate now to develop better ways to design and build.
Transform the way our world is designed and built.
Making positive impacts may be easier than you think. Brainstorm problems you face every day and identify sticking points that cause inefficiencies. Then imagine new ways of doing things. JOIN IN with like-minded people to turn your ideas into industry transformation.
