GP principal Scott Seyer, AIA, LEED AP, provided a keynote presentation at the Buildings 2.0 Conference, hosted by BuiltWorlds, on August 23 in Chicago. The day-long conference featured a number of professionals, who spoke about the current trends and changes in the built industry.
Seyer discussed the opportunities of future buildings, with a focus on trends in high-performance office towers. He noted that GP places importance on the needs and wants of building tenants and that these needs shift constantly and dramatically; what a tenant wanted seven years ago is very different from they want today. Seyer highlighted the typical floor plate size, building height, amenities, and outdoor access as building aspects where GP is seeing change and evolution.
