OVERVIEW OF THE NEED FOR REGULATORY STREAMLINING & FIATECH’S ROLE GENERIC PRESENTATION FROM THE FIATECH REALTIME PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND REGULATORY STREAMLINING ELEMENT 6 - JANUARY, 2012
PROJECT MANAGEMENT & REGULATORY STREAMLINING – TEAM MEMBERS Board Liaisons: Steven Makredes, Target & Kevin Hart, Kaiser Permanente Streamlining Project Steering Committee: - Ron Loback, Avolve – Chair & Element 6 Roadmap Champion Lead - Thomas Phillips – Target – Vice Chair - Jonathan Widney – Solibri - Marla Schuchman – ARX – Lead Digital Seals Project FIATECH Project Manager - Robert Wible
GENERIC OVERVIEW OF REGULATORY STREAMLINING The Nation’s Current Regulatory System & Need for Regulatory Streamlining Helping Both the Public & Private Sectors Be More Effective & Efficient Areas in Need of Streamlining Examples - Current FIATECH Regulatory Streamlining Projects: - Guideline for Replicable Buildings - ePlan/BIM - Digital Seals - Proof of Concept AutoCodes MAY WE BE OF ASSISANCE?
NATION’S CURRENT REGULATORY SYSTEM Federal Government 50 State and 4 Territorial Governments Native American Tribal Governments 40,000 local jurisdictions – Counties, Cities, Towns & Townships Regional & Special District Regulatory Authorities for – Fire, Water, Sewer, Conservation, Historic Preservation, Economic Development, etc.
CURRENT REGULATORY SYSTEM – NATURE OF FEDERALISM Limited Federal Authority Police (regulatory powers) generally reserved to States except for those powers specifically related to Interstate Commerce - Transportation – Air, Water and Federal highways & the Environment All other powers by 10 th Amendment are reserved to the States and their local units of government.
CURRENT REGULATORY SYSTEM Grew from Colonial Times – Simple regulation construction & commerce 13 Colonies to 50 States & 4 Territories Nation of 2.5 million to 310 million Complexities of technology & modern life: health, welfare & life safety including the environment
NEED FOR REGULATORY STREAMLINING FROM EARLY 1900’S TO PRESENT TREMENDOUS GROWTH IN COMPLEXITY - From Simple regulations over construction, interstate commerce, fire safety, and public health to: Highway construction, operation & maintenance Energy production and use Water, sewer, storm water runoff & pollution Content of products & their production & use Recycling & disposal of waste Health and safety of workers Transportation of hazardous & oversized materials
REGULATORY OVERLAP AND DUPLICATION BY AGENCIES AT ALL LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT EXAMPLES IN ROAD TRANSPORTATION: - What is being transported? - Over what kind of road – Federal, state, county, local road? - What are width and load limits for each type of road and for bridges encountered along the transportation route? - Are any of the components of what is being transported classified as a hazardous material by Federal, state or local government? - Where are vehicles doing the transportation licensed? Who inspects them? - Are “Escort Vehicles” required to accompany what’s being transported? Do different states, local jurisdictions transited along the route have different requirements for escort vehicles?
REGULATORY STREAMLINING – THE NEED GIVEN SEVERE RECESSION & NEED FOR MORE RAPID RECOVERY FROM BOTH MAN-MADE AND NATURAL DISASTERS NATION CAN NO LONGER AFFORD A REGULATORY SYSTEM THAT WAS BUILT IN MID-1900’S & IS: Cumbersome, overlapping, poorly administered Does not delineate clear lines of authority & jurisdiction Leaves compliance to guesswork and repeated re-applications, reviews and inspections Long waiting periods between each regulatory step Presents barriers to innovative products, processes & materials NOT ABOUT REGULATORY ABANDONMENT BUT ABOUT EFFICIENCY!!!
FOR EXAMPLE – THE BUILDING REGULATORY PROCESS
FIATECH REGULATORY STREAMLINING PROJECT - MISSION Enhance our nation’s public safety, disaster resilience and economic competitiveness… By streamlining and applying information technology to the nation’s regulatory process… Making it more effective and efficient – clarifying compliance and reducing time in regulatory process by up to 80%
THE USA IS AWASH IN REGULATIONS & PAPER “Streamline permitting. Cut red tape so job-creating construction and infrastructure projects can move forward.”
ENABLING NEW WAYS TO WORK ePlan Review DIG-SIGs AutoCodes Replicable Buildings Guideline Replicable Buildings Guideline
REPLICABLE BUILDINGS GUIDELINE Participants: Target Corporation, DuPont, Intel, Avolve Software, Solibri, ICC, Salem, OR; Clark Co., NV; Salt Lake City, UT RBG Status: – Key to large-scale regulatory reform – Defines “replicable” structure qualifications – Adoption parameters (high-level) – Guideline Drafted by FIATECH in 2009 and Released by ICC for adoption/use Sept., 2010 Supporting adoption by jurisdictions in Target Corporation field-testing and reports
REPLICABLE BUILDINGS GUIDELINE Keys elements – Single review for all but site specific issues – Repeatable process, check lists – Provides authoritative review for validation – Top-down and bottom-up adoption – Case studies (and more case studies) – Being adopted now by NY, NJ, & localities across U.S. SAMPLE SAVINGS - TARGET STORES $100,000 PER STORE IN DEMONSTRATION PROJECT
DIGITAL SEALS PROJECT PROBLEM BEING ADDRESSED: Only ½ of 50 States and most countries do net yet recognize digital seals on building plans slowing the use of ePlan review technologies PROJECT APPROACH: Identify barriers to gaining jurisdiction approval of digital seals and produce a Guide to Using Digital Seals that FIATECH members and stakeholders can use to work with administrative and legislative bodies to gain approval e-seal approval PROJECT TEAM & LEAD: ARX – LEAD, Participating members: Hatch, Avolve, Solibri, Target, Kaiser Permanent – Partner - AIA PROJECT DELIVERABLES: Research, Produce, Disseminate Guide, Identify several jurisdictions to target to gain acceptance of digital seals. - Produce and Release in 2012
AUTOCODES – EXPEDITED PERMITTING VIA DIGITAL REVIEW PHASES I AND II - UPDATE AND STATUS REPORT 60 DAYS TO 60 SECONDS!
AUTOCODES PROJECT OBJECTIVE Mission: – Make plan review, storage, retrieval more efficient reduce plan review time by 80% – Facilitate use of BIM data in both the regulatory & construction processes – Create greater uniformity across the nation in code adoption, interpretation and application
AUTOCODES – UPDATE – PHASE IA Phase I – Background – Scope – Objectives – Methodology POC Implementation and status 2D Plan Review Collection Results – Number of respondents – Number of comments (gross, average) – Spread of the comments – Analysis of responses
POC PARTICIPANTS – 14 VOLUNTARY PARTNERS ICC – Chicago States – New Jersey – New York Counties – Mecklenburg, NC Cities – Bend, OR – San Jose, CA – Livermore, CA – Redwood City, CA – Irvine, CA – Salt Lake City, UT – Amarillo, TX – Carrollton, TX – Houston, TX – Philadelphia, PA

AUTOCODES UPDATE – PHASE IA (CONTINUED) 2D Plan Review Data Analysis – What we learned Vs what we expected What we didn’t expect – GAP Analysis between respondents Did not anticipate the need for this, so really a positive development What to do with this information? Approval if issues corrected? – If NO, why not?
SNAPSHOT OF COMMENTS CodesCommentsNon- Compliant Not Enough Info Guideline Statements IBC 2009IL, NC, NY, OR, PA, TX, UT ADAOR CBCCA NJAC/IBC/A NSI NJ High Low1010
AUTOCODES – PHASE IB - UNDERWAY 3D Model Review – Check against current SMC Rulesets – Modify Templates Accordingly – Identify 2D components in 3D model Inform Target Corporation of Model Discrepancies – As compared to 2D – As required for viable checking Creates a model protocol by-product
AUTOCODES – PHASE IB (METHODOLOGY) Invite three jurisdictions to participate in 3D Checking Provide Technology and Familiarization Sessions to Participants Provide Rulesets to Jurisdictions Modify Ruleset Templates for Specific Jurisdictions
AUTOCODES – PHASE IB – CURRENT STATUS Collaborate with participants in running Accessibility and Egress Check Record process and approaches for intent v content understanding Generate results DEVELOP Jurisdiction Report Format
AUTOCODES – PHASE IB – LOOKING AHEAD Review results from Jurisdiction Model Checks Compare results for consistency Generate a GAP analysis Complete by 15 December 2011 Use results to influence Ruleset development Discussion - The ROI ecosystem
AUTOCODES – PHASE II – BEYOND THE POC Area of next focus – Expanded use of Accessibility and Egress Rulesets – different building types – Fire & Life Safety – Mechanical & Engineering (M&E) Engage with Phase I Jurisdictions + Expanded Audience – Design Firms, GC’s and MEP firms – Owners and Code Consultants
