Connected By Design – Season 2 Episode 2
People are inherently connected to the built environment. The restaurants we dine in, the places we work, and the venues we frequent for entertainment all elicit a unique sentiment. This season on Connected by Design, architectural expert Jeff Gears interviews influential thought leaders from the design, construction and commercial real estate industries to explore how and why physical spaces impact human emotions and behaviors, and how good design fosters that connection.
On this episode, Jeff talks with Branton Smith, Director of Preconstruction at Bauer Design Build, about how material shortages and price volatility are impacting the construction industry. Take a listen to hear about the creative measures designers and contractors are taking to keep projects moving forward.
