2 Change on the AEC horizon … Change on the AEC horizon …. PROCESS Drives Efficient Construction Delivery …Everything starts with you…. Your situation … Your needs …. Your resources … and Your PROCESS.The lack of robust PROCESSES has been endemic to and a virtually unique aspect of, the AEC community.
3 Key Drivers for Change Altered World Economic Landscape AEC Productivity has DELINED over the past 40 years !Global Climate ChangeBuildings are a major contributor!Two key factors will push fundamental change within the AEC community…The altered “flat world economy” &The need to address global climate change…
4 Key domains central to the discussion of AEC process change within the scope of this discussion include:Construction Project Delivery Methods for NEW and EXISTING buildingsSustainability and the concept of High Performance BuildingsHigher level FM Processes – LEAN, TCO / Total Cost of Ownership / Life-cycle ManagementStandards (data formats, taxonomies, interoperability, metrics vs. benchmarks)
5 BIMStrategyBIMF, or BIM for FM is used to describe an integrated approach to facility management and BIM… also referred to a “big BIM”, with the FOCUS upon the “I”, INFORMATION aspect and sharing information from formerly disparate FM silos.Our FOCUS is upon Construction Delivery Methods, arguably the single most important area to achieve dramatic improvements in productivity. Also, with out addressing improved construction delivery, the attainment of Sustainability goals is questionable at best.The integration of IPD and JOC/Job order contracting with BIM represents a key opportunity.

9 Benefits of IPD for Existing Buildings - JOC / SABER Job Order Contracting* proven, process-driven, Integrated Project Delivery methods for facility repair, renovation, & minor new construction.CollaborationShorter Project TimelinesTransparencyHigher ProductivityQualityLonger Term RelationshipsJob order contracting, known and implemented as SABER in the Air Force, is a form of IPD, or integrated project delivery developed over twenty years ago within the DOD sector. It has only recently begun to be rapidly adopted and deployed in other sectors, including non-DOD federal government, state/county/&local governments, higher educations and large k-12 school districts, hospitals and clinics, as well as airports and transportation authorities.* JOC is also knows as SABER in the Air Force –Initially developed within the DOD, this form of IPD for existing buildings has a successful track record encompassing more than two (2) decades.
10 JOC / SABER = Shorter Timelines! This is an example of productivity improvements afforded by JOC. What typically took years can accomplish in months or weeks.

21 ELECTRONIC TECHNICAL EVALUATIONS – Compare, Evaluate, Negotiate, Award Streamlined/Automated Technical Evaluation process.Focus technical evaluations on areas of difference.Changes are easily summarized in estimate report for both contracting officials and the contractor - creating a pre-negotiation strategy.Multiple contractor proposals can be compared side-by-side.The traditional process of contractor submitting estimates on paper is inefficient on several fronts. Evaluators then usually grab a red pen and start circling, crossing-out, and writing notes throughout the proposal. Then they open up a document and start typing line item numbers, description, and technical evaluation notes which are sent to contracting officials, The contractor is subsequently brought to the negotiating table.This process is streamlined with technology. Contractor’s proposals are electronically imported, and then compare this side-by-side to an internal independent estimate. This focuses our technical evaluations on those areas of difference. Creating a copy of the contractor’s proposal and tracking changes made create an electronic technical evaluation. Changes are easily summarized in an estimate report for both contracting officials and the contractor. This creates the pre-negotiation strategy.Multiple contractor proposals can be compared side-by-side.This process can reduce and sometimes even eliminate negotiations.Contractor’s can also create a revised estimate, tracking all of changes made from their original proposal. This creates the post-negotiation memorandum and a record for contract files.21
