THE WORKSHOP

The workshop will focus on a new perspective on integrating project delivery in which the strategies for organization, work methods and processes, and information management are derived from the value created through design and construction of a valuable, high-performing building. The workshop is based on the content of the book Integrating Project Delivery, published by John Willey & Sons on March 27, 2017. In the book, the authors explain how valuable, high-performing buildings can be created using model they call, “A Simple Framework for Integrating Project Delivery.

DPR Construction has published a brief, well-illustrated and written summary, titled A Guide to the Book Integrating Project Delivery. The Guide can be downloaded using this link:

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Participants will learn:

  1. The four criteria for a high-performing building and how these define value.
  2. The four integrations required to deliver value.
  3. Why agreeing on rules of engagement and risk sharing are the foundation for real, rather than aspirational, integration.
  4. How teams can achieve the four integrations to support a Lean strategy through Virtual Design & Construction. This is nothing more, nor less, than using BIM collaboratively to manage design and production within a management framework of performance measurement to create rapid feedback for continuous learning and improvement.

METHODOLOGY

The magic of the workshop is giving participants the opportunity to understand and use a simple, coherent way of dealing with the intersections of people and technical problems required to deliver a complex project. The workshop allows participants to learn by working through a series of thought exercises together that require them to draw on their own experience while listening to others. The outcome is a shared understanding of how they can work together with others to improve personal and team outcomes.

INSTRUCTORS

Atul Khanzode

Atul Khanzode leads DPR Construction’s Technology and Innovation Group. In this role Atul is responsible for the Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Operations and Preconstruction Technologies, strategic technology initiatives, Innovation, Research & Development and consulting. Atul collaborates extensively with academia and leading research groups around the world exploring issues related to Integration, Lean Construction and VDC to move the industry forward. Atul is a co-author of Integrating Project Delivery. Atul Khanzode is also a Board Member at WND Ventures where he is responsible for managing the strategic investments and providing mentorship and operational guidance to leadership teams of the portfolio companies. Atul has a Ph.D. in Construction Engineering and Management, focused on Integrated Practice, VDC and Lean Construction, from Stanford University and has a Master’s degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Duke University.

Dean Reed

Dean Reed has seen a lot in his 45 years in construction. Having grown up in a construction family, Dean joined the U.S. Peace Corps as a Rural Construction Advisor in West Africa after graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Upon returning home, he went to work with his tools as a Journeyman Carpenter, Welder, and Millwright, before discovering how he could use a computer to help his brother plan and manage large construction projects. His perspective changed dramatically in 1996 when he discovered Lean Construction and Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) together. He brought that new thinking to DPR Construction when he began working there as a Project Planner in 1997. Since that time, Dean has worked tirelessly to help DPR people, owners, designers and trade partners understand and leverage their creative talents to deliver significantly better buildings. He is widely respected within the Lean Construction community in the U.S. and internationally. Dean often speaks at industry events and lectures regularly at Stanford University. He is co-author of Integrating Project Delivery.
