Report-out of teams (Training Room) 4:15 Reconciling the Recommendations of the Teams Development of an Integrated Vision for the Site 5:00 Closing Statements, and Adjourn Description of Exercise: Each team will convene in a break-out session and will do an in-depth analysis of their topic area. This will include an alternatives analysis and preliminary development of design specifications and cost estimates for how the group would propose to redevelopment this aspect(s) of the case study site. During the course of the day each group will participate in a tour of the Chicago Center of Green Technology to learn in more detail how this former Brownfield site was redeveloped into a LEED building with sustainable storm water management features. Near the end of the time for the exercise, teams should try to exchange information on what they will be proposing, to check for potential incongruities or synergies between the teams. At the end of the exercise, each team will present on what they would like to propose for the site. In the last session of the day the group as a whole will seek to create a preliminary redevelopment plan for the site, taking into account the work done by all the groups. Following the workshop, engineering students from the University of Illinois will continue to refine plans and specifications for the redevelopment of the site. Products developed during and after the conference will be provided to the owner/developer of the case study site for possible use in the actual redevelopment work to be undertaken.
