Please join our Central Indiana Community of Practice for two presentations that were presented at the 2019 LCI Congress in Ft.Worth, Texas. 

The first presentation is “Project Timing: When does integration add value and when does it create waste?”.  This program discusses integrated projects and how it’s easy to throw everything we know, or think has added value on past projects, but we need to learn to pause and assess if they add value or create waste.  Buy-in from the owner, team experience and engagement, and schedule are a few things that can create roadblocks when implementing a new design and construction process.  We will tell the story of the Indiana University Health West Hospital vertical expansion project and the lessons we learned.

The second presentation is “Saving $100,000: How to prevent the consequences of utility strikes.” This program discusses how underground utility information is incomplete or missing, how do you ensure critical services remain uninterrupted, field teams are safe and a project isn’t hindered with hefty fines or repairs from a utility strike? Our team worked collaboratively with our trades, virtual construction team, safety team & field supervisors to create our new process call Underground Utility Damage Prevention(UUDP) program.
