    TWO FIRMS FORM UNIQUE PARTNERSHIP

    An established, award-winning firm that has plenty of clients but a shortage of qualified talent to hire.

    A NEW ALLIANCE STANDARDIZES ON BRICSNET

    An unusual consortium of architecture, engineering, and construction firms has recently formed to re-examine building-industry practices. The Strategic Alliance Roundtable (STAR) mission is "to improve the project delivery process by leveraging teamwork and technology." As they began to share insights and experience, their first order of business was to evaluate available computer technologies and select a CAD application to further their mission. Next week, writer Elizabeth Bollinger will explain why they chose Bricsnet Architecturals.

This last section will cover material selection, installation, building codes, and design options.
