Creating a Culture of Quality on CM Contracts

Summary: By creating a culture of quality on CM contracts, construction managers can ensure best practices are followed the first time, with repeatable, measurable results. Key elements to a robust quality assurance/quality control program include taking a quality manual to a successful living quality management system with feedback and continual process improvement, tailoring your quality program to the client’s needs and organization, and utilizing the quality program to help a CM program be sustainable. The business impacts of a quality program are reducing the cost of doing business, ensuring consistent performance, and creating repeat satisfied clients.

CTfastrack: Connecticut's First Bus Rapid Transit System

Summary: CTfastrak, Connecticut’s first bus rapid transit system, began revenue service in March of 2015. Having received much negative press in the early years during design, this project has transformed its public persona, revealing an innovative transportation system, executed on time and under budget. Ridership projections for the first year of service were surpassed in the first 60 days of operation. This session will review the program management history and discuss lessons learned in project execution.

How CMAA SOPs are Used to Evaluate CM Performance

Summary: Claims against Construction Managers are on the rise. Attendees will learn from an Owner, a Claims Consultant, and an Attorney how the CMAA Standards Of Practice are used by owners, contractors, insurance carriers, and others to evaluate the performance of a CM. The presenters will discuss the CMAA Standards of Practice and its relationship to the CM contract, how the CM's responsibilities are defined, and standard contract language such such as "protecting the best interest" and "ensuring a quality project" that can get a CM in trouble. Recent case studies will demonstrate salient topics.

How Proactive Partnering Efforts Saved a Faltering Project

Summary: This session will highlight efforts by the NYC-DEP to foster an atmosphere of partnering on the $187 million Phase 2 Upgrade Project at the Jamaica Waste Water Treatment Plant, where multiple work scopes, unforeseen site conditions, vendor delays, numerous design change orders and stringent completion dates created seemingly overwhelming stresses.

Access to work areas, locations of and access to laydown areas, protection of existing plant infrastructure, and limited contractor resources had all contributed to a schedule with minimal float. An array of additional challenges sent the project budget to $343 million and the schedule into freefall. Project team members retreated to their corners and the blame game started. 

NYCDEP launched a project partnering initiative in which all parties, including the owner, were held accountable; this quickly broke down the parties’ stockades and fostered a sense of common purpose.

Partnering for Project Controls Excellence [Temporarily Unavailable]

Summary: In 2014, Genetech, a leading biotech firm, initiated a project control partnership program. The program is designed to allow Genetech to build a more effective relationship with designated project controls firms providing services for large capital projects in the Continental US, with the specific goals to increase the quality of service and foster continuous improvement.
 
Genetech initially selected five project controls firms for the program, through a competitive procurement process, in order to develop them into partners who deliver services which meet their expectations while providing innovation and added value. Subsequently, two task orders were solicited as RFPs to partner firms only (a third, previously existing task order was also added to the partnership for management purposes).  The second of these task orders, which was to provide focused project control support to a large infrastructure renovation effort at Genetech's headquarters campus, was awarded to Hill International in early 2015.  
 
In this presentation, the partnership leads for both Genetech and Hill will discuss the project control partnership in general as well as the Hill task order, focusing on lessons learned that can be leveraged by other construction Owners attempting to establish a similar type of program with construction management service providers

Pioneering the Next Frontier of Collaboration

Summary: Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) has become a buzzword in design and construction, a concept embraced by many but practiced by few. With owners and practitioners hesitant to sign Integrated Forms of Agreement (IFOA) that incentivize positive behavior but share risk, terms like “IPD-Lite” and “hybrid delivery” have gained traction. But in 2011 Sutter Health, Skanska and NBBJ embarked on a journey to jointly design, construct and deliver the Palo Alto Medical Foundation San Carlos Center under and Integrated Form of Agreement (IOFA) with lean project delivery - one of the first "true" IPD projects on the West Coast.

Quality Practices in Design-Build Project Delivery

Summary: As one of the largest single public works projects underway in the United States, the New  York Bridge Project is a $3.9 billion initiative to replace the existing Tappan Zee Bridge carrying the NY State Thruway over the Hudson River.
 
This presentation will examine the systems and technology deployed to support the project quality process including: on- and off-site quality verification; electronic inspection and testing records; requirements verification; non-conformance management, and acceptance records. The benefits and implications of electronic systems for these activities will be reviewed including their integration with the established state construction oversight organization and practices.

Trends in Owners Perception of CM Fees in Alternative Delivery Methods [Temporarily Unavailable]

Summary: This session will evaluate relevant construction management fees and compare with regional multi-agency fee structures and provide benchmarking basis and potential savings strategies. Increasingly, agencies seem to be enticed by potential savings through sharing standard documents and services. Explore the experience of the Regional Construction Procurement Committee (RCPC) in California, in terms of perceived cost and time savings, perceived risk shift, favorable payment schedules, and lessened day-to-day coordination between designer and general contractor.
