e-Builder, the leading provider of integrated capital program and project management software, announced today that Jonathan Antevy, e-Builder CEO, will moderate a presentation on Integrated Project Delivery - Theory and Practice, at the Construction Owner's Association of America's Fall Conference in Austin, TX on November 18th, 2009. The presentation will be led by Chuck Thomsen, FAIA, and Sid Sanders, VP of Facilities and Construction, Methodist Hospital System, who will discuss the principles of IPD, and on the practical side, review the challenges, hurdles, and benefits of applying IPD to a $2 billion healthcare program.
The discussion will address integrating diverse project teams, defining differing and changing facility requirements, integrating broad ranges of information, and managing multiple leadership and organizational behaviors. Part of the presentation will include a discussion on how the use of BIM and Project Information Management Systems can impact Integrated Project Delivery. Learning objectives include:
1. Understanding how to assemble extended project and program teams, including AEs, consultants, CMs, manufacturers, fabricators, and specialty subcontractors at both the project and program levels
2. Learning to identify IPD principles designed to lower project costs and to shorten schedules
3. Producing high-performance, cost-effective designs that are sustainable, code compliant, and that are adaptable to the change that is common during and after health care construction.
Jonathan Antevy has also been a speaker at several industry events in 2009, including conferences with the Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering, Vanderbilt's Annual Healthcare Design and Construction Conference, and the upcoming Construction Management Association of America's National Conference.
