Rebuilding Ground Zero: Michael D. Garz, AIA
5 p.m. reception; 6 p.m. program
1 AIA/CES (HSW)
Michael Garz is an architect and project executive with more than 35 years of experience, including management of design, engineering, architecture, and construction of various buildings and facilities. His project record includes the rehabilitation and construction of public and private buildings in the commercial, education, government, industrial, military, transportation, and recreational areas. As a registered architect in 13 states, he has delivered projects under both a traditional design-bid-build and a design-build approach.
Michael has managed projects ranging in size from small renovation projects under task order assignments to the $3.2 billion World Trade Center Transportation Hub. The latter project typifies the application of environmentally sensitive design (sustainable design) principles that provide the basic value structure governing his work. Throughout his career, Michael has sought to improve quality of life without adding extra costs to projects.
The rebuilding effort at the World Trade Center site is a project unlike any other, presenting challenges of unprecedented magnitude and meaning, requiring tough but inclusive decision-making, and demanding strict accountability and benchmarks for measuring success.
Light food and refreshments will be provided at the reception.
