Applying Lean to Progressive Design Build – Part 3: The Contractor Perspective (San Diego CoP) @ Zoom Meeting
Nov 12 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Learn from the experts in this Zoom hosted meeting.

Daniel Shirkey from Balfour Beatty has assembled a panel of General and Trade Contractors who all have experienced both traditional and Lean Progressive Design-Build. Please join us for this interactive session with the ability to ask questions through Zoom as we learn more from their experiences and how they might be applied on current or future projects of your own. The members of the panel include:

  • Erik Winje is the Pre-Construction Manager for a design build group supporting Clark Pacific Parking Structure Prefabricated Solutions. A registered professional civil engineer, Erik has worked in the construction industry for over 40 years in both preconstruction and operations. In the last 12 years of his career has been involved in integrated project delivery and design/build work. He is active in the Lean Construction Institute and DBIA working to transform the way in which projects are designed and built.
  • With over 14 years of experience, Anthony Muñoz has managed all aspects of construction from conception through execution. Currently, Anthony is a multi-project Sr. Project Manager in DPR’s San Diego and Southern California regions with a focus in healthcare. Throughout his career, Anthony has been a champion of implementing lean practices throughout each stage of the projects he has touched. As a DPR lean leader, Anthony helps project teams integrate lean thinking and continuous improvement with the incremental changes to everyday practices that, cumulatively, result in big changes.
  • Matt Brown, a Preconstruction Manager with KHS&S Contractors has worked for metal framing subcontractors in the construction industry since 2001 on various project types including health care facilities, theme parks, clean rooms, and even a concert hall. Starting in field operations, and eventually moving into estimating, he has versatile experience from multiple project perspectives. He is currently in a preconstruction role which he views as a link between estimating and operations, to build a plan for a successful project.

The Panel Will be moderated by Daniel Shirkey

WEBINAR: Two Lean Coaches Analyze Last Planner System®: Successes and Failures @ GoToWebinar
Nov 12 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

In this highly visual 90 minutes, two Lean coaches with a cumulative 17 years’ experience in over 400 Last Planner System® sessions on nearly 90 projects break down what works, what doesn’t and the essentials for Last Planner System® success.

Dan Fauchier and Andy Fulton will look at in-person sessions and virtual sessions and point out the differences when working virtually. Their experience includes projects in commercial, residential (multi-family and single family), healthcare, public works and industrial/agriculture.

Some discussion of “the basics” are included, but this is most valuable for those who are using or plan to use Last Planner System® on a project and want a deeper discussion of who to invite, how to prepare, how to connect Milestones, Phase Pulls and Weekly Work Plans, use of software, planning virtually, and more.

Conversations With Coaches @ Zoom Meeting
Nov 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Join us for a 90-minute virtual CoP experience to engage   deeply with independent Lean Coaches in a collaborative discussion.

Come with your most vexing Lean implementation or project   problems and get expert advice. We will utilize breakouts to discuss topics   in small  groups, each led by a coach.

The Zoom link for attendance will be included with your   registration confirmation email.

This  is going to be a fun and interactive session and   we will be capping registration at 70 in order to keep the groups small! As well, joining from your mobile device may be frustrating. For that reason, we are only allowing  attendees to join from your computer. We also ask that everyone #turnyourcameraon and come ready to actively participate! It will enrich the experience for all participants.

WEBINAR: IPD for Small Projects @ GoToWebinar
Nov 19 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

You are still more likely today to hear about the mega-project’s use of Integrated Project Delivery than the smaller projects.  Although the big projects usually command all the attention, small projects make up a majority of the project landscape across the country.  This presentation will focus on a large healthcare system located in Chicago, its first IPD projects utilizing an Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) and will also focus on small retail health clinics that were built with a hybrid Lean approach.  The presenter is the Owner’s Representative who has worked for this client for over 2 decades on all capital project needs.  This will allow for real world examples showing the progress being made by using the IPD tools and the experience of building over (20) sites in 2 years.  There have been many challenges along the way and the discussion will dive into the inner workings and dealings with various landlords, newly constructed spaces that have fallen behind schedule and are delaying the opening of the clinics, and what the team has done to keep these projects moving forward.  Metrics and outcomes will be presented proving that selecting the same team and working repeatedly with them shows how efficiency can be driven into the construction process.

WEBINAR: Principles of Target Value Delivery (TVD) @ GoToWebinar
Dec 4 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

Staying within the allowable budget and ensuring the team’s innovation decreases waste and increases value to the customer are attributes of successful project delivery and can be achieved through Target Value Delivery (TVD). TVD is a disciplined management practice with several phases (Business Case Planning, Validation, Value Delivery and Value Post Construction) meant to be applied holistically to obtain maximum value. The phases of TVD can be supplemented by core components like team organization, Big Room, project planning, cost modeling, continuous estimating and conceptual design. Take the first step in your journey towards mastering each of the TVD phases and all of the core components in this 90-minute webinar.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe attributes of a team culture required to support TVD
  • Understand how to align project deliverables with customer-defined value
  • Define the major phases in the TVD process and how they relate
