Transforming the Industry:
One Project at a Time

We’ve learned a lot over the last year since having the LCI Chicago community visit our Big Room. Now, with another year of experience working together as an Integrated team, we hope you can join us at one of our project sites to see how the work in the Big Room has fostered growth and improved results.

This event will be a joint hosted event with LCI and COAA and is a great follow up to the Advocate/Boldt presentation that was conducted in 2017 to highlight the big ideas that Advocate has been pursuing when it comes to construction of ambulatory facilities.

The learning objectives are:
1 – How to approach an integrated team project from the Owners Perspective & Risk-Reward Partners Perspective
2 – Breakthrough moments from the field that shifted their focus from individual scope to the collective project.
3- Identify AMG-Lakeview specific project challenges and how we were able to work through them as an integrated team

SPEAKERS

Peter Messina – Advocate Health Care – As Advocate Health Care’s Director of Design & Construction for Ambulatory and Support Services, Peter leads the program’s strategic development and implementation. In this role he helped establish the master plan for Advocate Medical Group’s outpatient facilities focused on operations and technology, patient experience, and sustainability. This master plan has been the foundation for over 21 projects Advocate’s integrated ambulatory team have delivered throughout the past 4 years.
________________________________________
Ryan Yoho – The Boldt Company – As the Director of Construction Management for The Boldt Company, and Project Executive for Advocate’s Outpatient Collaborative Program, Ryan’s accountability began with developing the initial program concepts to ensure alignment with the owner’s vision for success. His experience with implementing lean concepts into construction projects, as well as Integrated Project Delivery, helped create the ILPD environment expected and performed on the program today.
________________________________________
Jeff Neaves – HDR – Mr. Neaves is an Architect at HDR Architecture and works as a Senior Project Manager. Jeff has extensive experience in healthcare design and construction. Since 2012, he has worked consistently on projects in an Integrated Project Design delivery format.

A Lean Coffee


Join us for a Lean Coffee to learn and support each other in our Lean endeavors! Take part in an open conversation in a safe, small and low-pressure environment about the topics that are relevant to our Lean community. We want to hear about the problems you are solving, the issues you want to solve, and lessons you’ve learned on your Lean Journey. No previous Lean experience is required.

Participants from cross functional roles as designers, constructors, owners, trades partners, and associations propose discussion topics around any subject about which they want to learn – THERE ARE NO IRRELEVANT DISCUSSION TOPICS! Each proposer takes 15 to 30 seconds to pitch their topic, written on a sticky note, to the group. Once all topics have been pitched, voting begins to establish a priority for discussing the topics. Topics are then ordered from highest to lowest votes and examined accordingly. Participants will receive 8 minutes of time to discuss the topic. After 8 minutes there will be a ‘thumbs up/ thumbs down’ to decide whether or not the discussion should continue. Thumbs up equals 4 more minutes on the clock. This happens until it is agreed that the topic has been discussed to satisfaction. Takeaways are considered and then the topic with the next largest amount of votes is addressed. Come as you are and be ready to learn.

Attendance is free of charge.

​Parking Information – Free street parking available for (very) early risers, otherwise there is a paid parking garage directly behind our building – entrance from ADA north of Fulton Market.

Breakfast and coffee will provided
