There will be a brief project presentation and tour of the 220,000 SF addition to an existing medical office building.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Evaluate Lean Principles and how they merge with an Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) method during design and construction to maximize efficiency.

  2. Observe the advantages of above ceiling rack prefabrication for building systems. They will participate in detailed design techniques using BIM technology to fully understand above ceiling coordination prior to starting onsite.

  3. This course will cover how exterior envelopes in building construction can be fast-tracked using prefabricated wall panels. Participants will evaluate wall components to determine what was achievable for construction while maintaining the design intent.
  4. This course will cover construction Takt Sequencing utilizing a Last Planner System (LPS) to produce predictable workflow and rapid learning during design and construction.
