ACE Monthly Task Force Meeting 08/04/2016

“Bridging the Gap between Design and Construction”

The design and construction industry is at a tipping point.  Technology is readily available, and building design, construction, and operation data is abundant.  The question now becomes, "How do we integrate technology into our processes to enhance project delivery?"  By utilizing a multi-year case study as a reference point, this presentation will address the importance of re-thinking current processes to incorporate the use of accurate geometry and correlated data at multiple points throughout the design and construction lifecycle.  The presenters will challenge the notion that information is proprietary to a single company and discuss the drawbacks of simply interjecting technological solutions into an existing workflow.  The presentation will utilize a current case study to discuss the issues surrounding Building Information Modeling (BIM), and its future application to the design and construction industry.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the transition from 2D to 3D workflows (BIM)
  • Learn the importance of BIM to various project stakeholders
  • Identify different types of information needs and requirements
  • Realize how technology adoption and modeling execution is changing the industry
  • Review the current state of modeling time utilization rates (measured within a case-study environment)
  • Identify opportunities for enhancing your AEC business deliverables

Guest Speakers:

  • Charlie Popeck, Green Ideas, President
  • John Cribbs, Green Ideas, Principal

Highlighted CIP Update:

  • R.J. Zeder, Transportation and Development Director, City of Chandler

Owner and Industry Updates:

Updates will be given by municipal, county and state agencies as well as educational institution representatives in attendance. 

Networking: 7:00 – 7:30 and 9:00 – 9:30 a.m.

Meet and Network with Owners and potential strategic teaming partners before and after the program

Design Build Fundamentals September 2016

Attend this training and hear from Industry Experts about their 'hands-on' experiences and 'how to do' Design Build successfully.  Learn the integrated team approach whcih makes this project delivery method a perferred choice for many projects.

Design-Build (DB) is a form of Project Delivery where one team is responsible for both the design and construction of a project.  This approach eliminates many of the issues associated with the traditional Design-Bid-Build method, where the owner, designer, and contractor often experience adversarial relationships based on shifting risk and assessing blame.
