ESD is well-represented at this week’s Chicago Build 2022, with four experts presenting on various industry topics and trends and two ambassadors focused on promoting women and diversity in the building industry.

Chicago Build kicks off with hundreds of speakers, mixers, and other events—including industry insights from ESD professionals. Digital Practice Leader Samir Abdelmawla is participating in the panel discussion, “Coordinated, Efficient, Accurate, and Organized: Optimizing Collaboration Using BIM.” Practice Leader for Technology Mo Fahim joins a panel of experts discussing “Building Smart Cities of Tomorrow.”

Workplace Solutions Practice Leader Julie Lardenoit, will join other industry women leaders discussing “Establishing a Powerful Collaboration Network.” Immediately following the discussion, a networking session will be held where ESD Electrical Engineer Holly Pepper will be acting as a Women in Construction Ambassador. Pepper says she hopes to help other female professionals make meaningful connections and share experiences in a male-dominated industry.

Meanwhile, ESD Technical Authority Suzan Sun-Yuan will be pulling double duty representing ESD as both a panelist and as a Diversity in Construction Ambassador. Sun-Yuan will be discussing how to “Maximize Energy Efficiency in Old Buildings” as well as providing leadership in efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the built environment industry.

ESD professionals freely share their knowledge and expertise at industry events like Chicago Build as part of the company’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
