A Model for Designer / Contractor Collaboration – An Effective Partnership

May 16 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Time-saving, efficient, collaborative, and mutually beneficial describe what to expect from a partnership developed in the very early stages of design between the Designer and Contractor.

Utilizing the strengths of both entities to create and maintain a design through construction is the key to a successful project. In addition, collaborating to remove the waste of value engineering and implement tools to define the process better will alleviate the time it takes to design a system twice.

This presentation will review what goes into an effective collaboration and its deliverables to the project teams and the project itself.

Learning Objectives:

  1.  Recognize the benefits of Designer/Contractor collaboration early in the design process
  2.  Develop strategies to utilize stakeholders’ strengths and experiences
  3.  Define tools that will mutually benefit the project throughout the entire design/construction process
  4.  Learn how to apply and implement the collaboration process to your specific goals and manage overall
    project expectations.
