Smart Built Culture Book - The Current Table of Contents




As readers may recall I am writing a book titled Smart Built Culture$ Fixing Our Broke Built Culture" and I wanted to share a draft copy of the current table of contents. Significant work remains on the later chapters but the first half of the book is coming together.

If your organization is interested in assistance with mapping out an internal path to a smart built culture, or better yet, if your local construction community - including planners, owners, designers, constructors, suppliers and trad contractors - is interested in creating a smart built culture please call.

Meanwhile, below is a draft copy of the table of contents of the book in it's current form.
