Event Description: SAME Hampton Roads Chapter and DBIA Hampton Roads Chapter have joined forces for a late afternoon project spotlight and networking event. The program will start with open networking as members of DBIA, members of SAME including local military representatives, local higher education students, and guests have an opportunity to socialize with a variety of professionals from the greater Hampton Roads region. The project spotlight presentation focuses on Woodstock Park in Virginia Beach.
The park underwent a $32 million renovation under the collaborative partnership of Virginia Beach Parks & Recreation and HRSD. A four-person panel of key team members from the owners, design team, and contractor team will share the story of their groundbreaking program and how they transformed the park into an awesome multi-use facility that is attracting visitors in increasing numbers since its opening this summer 2021. This networking event will also serve as both Chapters’ end-of-year and holidays social. The individual Chapter Presidents will address the attendees with some reporting and updates about their organizations.
