BLACK HOLE

Some of you may have noticed a big black space on our home page. Well, pictures should have been showing up in that spot, and now they hopefully are. Unfortunately, when people typed in www.aia-arizona.org the photos weren’t appearing, but if you typed aia-arizona.org (no w’s) everything worked fine.

Well, the problem has been officially solved and everyone should be able to see our beautiful photos of the 2007 Design Award Winners. If you are still having problems make sure to update your Internet Explorer with the latest version and to download Adobe’s Flash Player ().

Design Professional Survival Course

Owners have embraced the CM@Risk and Design/Build project delivery methods
in the belief they will improve results, reduce change orders, and eliminate disputes.
The rapid adoption of building information models also promise a fundamental
transformation to integrated design and construction teams. For better or
worse, these new technologies and business methods are a wave sweeping
through the design professions. Join our panel of legal and insurance experts to
catch the wave and ride it to better and more profitable projects.
