From a team of multi-discipline trainers: PROJECT DELIVERY METHODS “KNOW YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES!”

October 6 @ 9:00 am - October 8 @ 12:00 pm

From a team of multi-discipline trainers: PROJECT DELIVERY METHODS “KNOW YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES!”

For the first time, we are bringing virtual instructor-led expertise to your office through the synergy of multi-discipline trainers’ knowledge that has only been delivered at conferences. And it gets better! In the past, conference presentations have been focused on a one-way exchange of know-how from the speakers to you. This course moves beyond that one-way exchange to allow you to apply what you have learned.

A team of multi-discipline experts will provide you with exceptional feedback, great insight and actionable strategies. We look forward to sharing this expertise with you.

Remember when it comes to contracts, it’s not about your own thoughts and assumptions; it’s about what is “written”!

Course Description: Whether you are a Project Owner, Consultant, or Contractor, understanding the many different project delivery options for a particular project is critical to its success.

Some of the considerations to be taken into account when deciding on and participating in the appropriate project delivery method are:
• Project’s needs and priorities
• Roles and responsibilities
• Allocation of risk
• Team members’ expertise
• Measurements for success
• Budget and schedule

When the entire team understands their roles and responsibilities for the project delivery method selected, this understanding can work to build trust, honesty and respect between the participants.

Through a team of multi-discipline trainers, this Workshop will discuss the characteristics, risks, benefits and disadvantages of various project delivery methods including:
• Design-Bid-Build
• Design-Build
• Construction Management for Services
• Construction Management for Services and Construction
• Integrated Project Delivery
• Methods Involving Land, Finance, Operation or Maintenance

Real understanding will be tested by assisting the “client” in determining an appropriate project delivery method. Through an interactive exercise, the participants will present a proposal to the “client” on why their project delivery method is the best!

Your Facilitator: Debbie Hicks. With a comprehensive and varied education background, learning has been at the core of her career. As former President of the Southern Interior Construction Association in BC for 22 years, liaising with the buyers of construction services, architects, engineers and contractors in advocacy and education brings a solid base to her expertise. In addition, her experience as the owner representative for the construction of the new Clubhouse for the Kelowna Yacht Club has provided additional perspective. She has been fortunate to work with the Alberta Construction Association to facilitate industry dialogue on “Optimizing the Flow of
Money” and “Non-Standard Contract Clauses and their Costs”. Through these experiences, with a lot of passion and enthusiasm, Debbie is able to bring both knowledge and insight into her work and presentations for the construction industry.
