BRT 1999 National Construction Conference

The First General Session of the Business Roundtable 1999 Construction Conference on November 15, 1999 at Ponte Vedra Beach was led off by a presentation on the Construction Innovation Forum, the NOVA Award, and the benefits of Construction Innovation Programs, particularly for construction owners. 

The presentation, adapted for the internet, can be viewed in either of the following formats:

  • BRT_Paper.htm (1,130 Kb in total) is the preferred format for this Power Point presentation, but it only works on Microsoft Internet Explorer browser..
  • BRT_Paper.pdf (744 Kb) can be used on any browser. (You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view or print this PDF file.)

Viewing, Downloading, and Printing Nominations
Nominations are stored and downloaded as PDF files. You can view a nomination in your browser by clicking on its short-title, and you can print the nomination once you have it in your browser. (You need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to view and print PDF files.)

To download and save a file on your disk drive, click on it in whatever manner works for your browser and operating system. (For example, in Internet Explorer 4, right click your mouse on the short-title and select "Save Target As" to download the file.) This will save the PDF file onto the disk drive and directory you specify, with the name you specify. (We recommend you retain the PDF suffix.) Nomination files are now named according to their number. For example, FOUNDATION RETROFIT, which is nomination seven, is file Nom07_00.PDF.

You are welcome to distribute the summaries, entire set, or individual nominations either as computer file(s) or in printed form. The NomPrint.PDF file of the 2000 NOVA Award Nominations provides the best quality printing. You may also photocopy nominations, but photocopying loses much of the detail, particularly in the graphics.
