Other invited speakers at the meeting included Howard Ashcraft from Hanson Bridgett, LLP, who has championed the use of IPD in North America. He discussed the implementation of IPD in projects. The event concluded with Judith Webb from the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) presenting the LEED-CI Platinum award.
