Program: Big Hairy Project? Collaboration is key!
(Collaborative Project Delivery Approaches)
When we have big hairy projects, how often do we wish we could bring all the necessary experts together to ensure success? From a full owner team, to planners, to engineers, to constructors – everyone is collaborating for ultimate project success! Delivery methods play a vital role and choosing the right one can help mitigate serious costs, schedule and logistical challenges. This presentation will highlight case study successes to-date in teams working together to confirm to project budgets early in the design process, the importance of working together on site and community logistics and setting the stage for beating tough schedule milestones ahead of a consent decree mandated operational deadline.
Special Update: SME Foundation Update by Will Wilkinson
