Designed for Alexander Telfair, the Telfair mansion was constructed in 1819 on the site of the former colonial Government House, the official residence of Royal Governor James Wright. Alexander commissioned William Jay, a young English architect, to design his new home. Jay had recently arrived in Savannah from England to oversee the construction of the residence of Richard Richardson (now Telfair Museums’ Owens–Thomas House & Slave Quarters).
In 1875, Alexander’s sister Mary – heir to the family fortune and last to bear the Telfair name – bequeathed the house and its furnishings to the Georgia Historical Society to be opened as a museum. The Society hired German-born artist Carl Brandt to create the new institution. Working with New York-based architect Detlef Lienau and Savannah-based architect Augustus Schwab, Brandt remodeled the old Telfair home and constructed an addition to house a new collection of art. The museum opened to the public in 1886, making it the oldest public art museum in the South and the first museum in the United States founded by a woman.
In this course, participants will learn how companies are using workplace design to address the pressures of today’s highly competitive marketplace. It focuses on three pressures — space utilization, innovation, and employee engagement — that are driving their efforts and leading to solutions that add value well beyond the conventional considerations of cost and square footage. The presentation also offers suggestions for managing change as companies address these pressures.

Breakout Session: Under Pressure: From Data to Placemaking, presented by Allied International Cleaning Services
Processes to capture the productivity improvements, space savings, and cost advantages of new work styles depend heavily on having accurate space use data – data that is too often based on subjective, outdated collection and analysis methods. This presentation demonstrates the power of combining cultural assessment data with real-world space utilization and space syntax data to create scenarios that help space planners avoid costly overestimation, uncover untapped space optimization opportunities, and reinforce culture.

Technology-driven manufactured construction is customized prefab construction for the building interior. The key is technology―real-time, interactive 3D software―that integrates with CAD, Revit and manufacturing software, bridging the gap between the client-design team and the manufacturer. The result is high-performance interiors that keep their value over time. This type of construction is especially suited to projects where speed is of the essence and when clients require certainty of price and quality.
Manufactured construction promotes safety at the project site and can be specified to contribute to better indoor air quality. The ability to integrate technology hardware in the physical space, environmental sustainability and design control are other benefits.
WARNING: This session introduces real-life subject matter and scenarios that may be uncomfortable or stressful for students. Please be prepared and advised before attending this session.
In this session, our subject matter expert reviews the current and future threats posed by active shooters and workplace violence incidents. The session explores the need of owners and managers to plan for these scenarios and what property managers and owners must understand about risk and liability. Through table-top exercises, participants in the room will be able to practice formulating their own plans on how to respond to these dynamic emergency situations.
Enjoy Savannah’s walkable city for our Friday night reception. Service Brewing is a short walk from the conference hotel. Thank you to our Friday Night Reception sponsor Russell Landscape Group.
Attendee Restrictions: Please note, registrants under the age of 21 are not permitted to attend this event.
Service Brewing was seeded by passion, literally: It all began on Valentine’s Day, when Kevin Ryan received a gift from his lady love, Meredith Sutton. An artist constantly seeking to imbue life with inspiration, Meredith had asked Kevin what interests he had outside of cycling, and finely-crafted beer topped the list. Instead of his favorite six-pack, however, she brought him home brewing supplies. After an obsessive practice period, Kevin’s tasty brews found their way into the glasses of friends and family.
The West Point graduate and former Army commander had also been seeking something more from his career, and in 2014 the couple launched Service Brewing with the help of almost two dozen investors–most of them Army, Navy and Marine Corps veterans. Kevin leads the company, continuing to develop recipes and research the craft. Meredith, a SCAD graduate, designed the stunning Savannah tasting room based off of the stories Kevin told about his military experience and has creatively built the brand to pay homage to American military history.
With the help of an eager and thirsty community, Service Brewing has helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for local, regional and national organizations that assist our veterans and first responders.
Partners in life and in business, Kevin and Meredith remain passionate about brewing great beer and honoring those who serve.
