May 2, 2017 - 8:00am - Lean Construction Series: Units 5

Unit 5: Lean Supply Chain and Assembly

Lean Supply Chain and Assembly continues the Lean process and delves into creating efficient methods for the procurement, engineering, fabrication and delivery of the required materials and equipment to a project.


Everyone related to the construction process has incentive to get the project done faster and at a lower cost – from the project owners who want to see tangible results for their investment to the contractors and designers who want to do their job well and move on to the next project. Lean Construction is based on the holistic pursuit of continuous improvements aimed at minimizing costs and maximizing value on a construction project: planning, design, construction, activation, operations, maintenance, salvaging and recycling.

To develop the tools needed to build lean, GBCA is providing our members with the Lean Construction Education Program Series. Construction professionals at all experience levels will learn the building blocks necessary to transform their projects and companies into a lean operating system. Register for one unit, or get a discount by registering for all seven. Participants who intend to take the CM-LEAN test on May 23rd must attend all 7 units.

*** If you attended GBCA’s Lean Webinar in January 2017, please contact Angela Hendrix for your discount of the full series at (215) 568-7015.

May 24, 2017 - 12:00pm - Managing Up

The second of three leadership programs hosted by the CLC this year, Managing Up is being led by Dale Carnegie.

No matter how intelligent and well-informed leaders are in organizations, it is impossible for them to always see the big picture in each situation. We find ourselves wanting to communicate our ideas and suggestions in a way that will improve the overall leadership of the organization, but we are not in a leadership role. In this program we examine ways that we still can influence the efficiency and effectiveness of our work teams, even if we are not the ones giving all the orders. We commit to ways that we can be more flexible in responding to others. We explore ways of managing our priorities and expectations, and at the same time accomplishing our goals and the goals of our manager.

At the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Plan the way we communicate with managers and colleagues
  • Manage priorities and expectations
  • Receive suggestions and feedback
  • Sell an idea up the organization

June 8, 2017 - 11:30am - PennFirst: The IPD Team that Tackles Urban Planning an AIA/GBCA/COAA Joint Event

A team of designers, healthcare specialists, engineers, and builders, self-named the "PennFIRST Team," is nearly two years into the design and construction effort of a New Patient Pavilion for Penn Medicine. Using an integrated project delivery (IPD) strategy, the team is collaboratively tackling complex urban planning, design, and construction challenges inherent in an approximately 1.5 million-square-foot facility on a dense urban site. Learn how shared integration space, parametric cost modeling, PITs, HBDI, decision trees, full-scale mock-ups, and live simulations are being put to the test to encourage multidisciplinary collaboration and promote team problem-solving and innovative thinking.

Speakers include:
Daryl Bodewin, HDR, Inc.
Steven Greulich, Penn Medicine
Ed Hanzel, L.F. Driscoll
Mack Stulb, L.F. Driscoll

Learning Objectives include:

• Explore real-life implications of using IPD to develop a large, highly integrated urban health complex.

• Learn how a well-conceived integration space positively contributes to a collaborative multidisciplinary planning and design effort.

• Understand the critical importance of thorough staff on-boarding, behavioral tendencies, servant leadership, and HBDI analyses.

• Explain how a project team PIT structure can integrate disciplines, solve design and construction challenges, and manage construction costs.
 

*** AIA members should register at www.aiaphiladelphia.org/calendar, COAA PA members and local owners are invited as our guests. Please RSVP to Angela Hendrix at ahendrix@gbca.com or 215-568-7015.
