Women in Construction Luncheon 

Thursday, October 22, 2015
11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Coast Plaza Hotel

Speaker: Jacqui McFarland
Jacqui McFarland is a Senior Interior Designer with Sizeland Evans Interior Design, and a former Instructor and Department Chair of the Interior Design program at Mount Royal University — her 30 year career has encompassed numerous projects, from highly detailed residences to large scale commercial offices.

Topic: 
On Being MacGyver*— How to build an 8,000 square feet luxury residence in 270 days — an Integrated Project Delivery case study.

Jacqui will share a recent highlight in her career: participating in an Integrated Project Delivery model in the creation of a beautifully appointed residence in the seemingly impossible 30 weeks. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a project delivery approach that collaboratively harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results.
