Concrete Industry Board Educational Seminar: The Key to a Successful Project - Collaboration between the Engineer and the Contractor
Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - 12 noon
Speaker: Mike Schneider - President, American Concrete Institute (ACI) SVP, CPO, Baker Concrete Construction, Inc., Monroe, Ohio
Location: New York Athletic Club, 59th & 7th Avenue – 180 Central Park South
We have all been involved with good and bad projects. One of the key differentiators between successful and unsuccessful jobs is the communication and collaboration (or lack thereof) between the engineer, contractor and other team members. This live presentation will discuss a number of items that can effect budget, schedule, quality and the safety performance of a project. The end game is to have a satisfied owner that would like to use the same project team on the next job.
The earlier the contractor is involved in the design process the more impact he can have on the project cost curve. It is imperative that the expectations of all parties are identified early and hopefully there is congruency. How do we balance the issue of design optimization versus constructability. Constructability ultimately impacts the schedule and budget. How are the tolerance interfaces between various trades (elevators, curtain wall, floor coverings) discussed before they become an issue? We will discuss the importance of a pre-construction conference that is an open discussion of the potential issues. We will look at case histories where collaboration has helped to guarantee project success.
