TITLE: Going Global: Planning & Contracting for Success Across International Borders
DESCRIPTION: Living in the age of the global economy and the Internet age provides expanded opportunities for architects and engineers to work across borders, expand their horizons, and seize the opportunity for economic returns and professional satisfaction. However, it is not always an easy (or even wise) venture. Language, monetary systems, local codes and statutes, insurance, and liability issues can make it a precarious leap for those who do not do so wisely and strategically. In this webinar, our presenters will provide an overview of appropriate considerations and processes for the strategic evaluation and pursuit of international opportunities as well as the pragmatic tools to survive and succeed through contracts, project management, insurance, and vigilance. For those firms not currently planning to work internationally, many of these considerations also apply to expanding your practice into other states.
PRESENTERS: David Ericksen, Peter Molgaard and Joel Halverson
