The DBIA NW Marketing Committee solicited the help of Little Fish Productions to make a video featuring regional DBIA NW leadership and members talking about joining DBIA and the advantages of using the Design-Build approach. The footage will be used on the DBIA NW website, for the newsletter, and other communications to promote Design-Build as a delivery method and increase awareness of the DBIA Northwest Regional chapter.
The first shoot featuring Inland Northwest Regional chapter professionals took place in Spokane at the First Interstate Center for the Arts. Interviewees included Kevin Twohig retired CEO of the Spokane Public Facilities District representing owners, Inland Northwest DBIA President Tony Corigliano, and local project superintendent Ryan Ford.
From there, the video crew travelled to Seattle for the monthly chapter breakfast meeting. The video production team of Rob and Christian used the view from the 76th floor of Columbia Tower as a backdrop to interview DBIA Regional Vice President Katie Popolow. Popolow articulated the benefits of the design-build delivery model and reasons why architects, contractors, engineers and owners should join the DBIA organization.
Filming conditions becoming more challenging for the production team during a site visit to the Population Health jobsite at UW. A cold wind kicked up which made crossing the rebar and post-tension cable maze tricky. Rob and Christian, with the help of area superintendent Dan Kathman, hoisted the camera equipment up and down ladders to capture workers in action on the site.
