FMCC Webinar: “Efficient Repair, Renovation, and Sustainability Project Delivery Methods”

Peter Cholakis

Date: 24 Jul, 2014

Presenter: Peter Nicoals Cholakis

FMCC Webinar: “Efficient Repair, Renovation, and Sustainability Project Delivery Methods” Overview: The efficient life-cycle management of the built environment is a virtual mandate for most facility Owners due to environmental and economic drivers.   Surprising few Owners however realized the importance of collaborative construction delivery methods such as Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Job Order Contracting (JOC), and Public Private Partnerships (PPP).   Instead, Owners continue with ad-hoc and antagonistic processes such as design-bid-build.

Fundamental Change

  • Any major improvement must be driven by Owners(or regulatory mandate)  -Owners pay the bills.
  • As long as Owners remain satisfied with the status quo and/or remain unaware/uneducated with respect to improvement methods, lean management processes, and supporting technologies, economic and environmental waste will continue to be rampant.

Key Issues

  • Core understanding of fundamental built environment life-cycle management (BLM) principles and practices remains limited.
  • U.S. BLM knowledge began within the DoDsector, followed by  higher education, healthcare and process-based industry.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Importance and currently available collaborative project delivery methods
  2. Description of key characteristics of a collaborative project delivery method
  3. Roles of Owners, AE’s, Contractors

Importance of standardized information and process-centric technology
