Relationships, Relationships, Relationships! Delivery Methods Dissected - Program Recap

A great program to start out the year of 2015!

On January 15th, SMPS Fort Worth rang in the New Year with a rock-star panel program focusing on alternative delivery methods.  Nancy Usrey FSMPS, CPSM moderated our panel and walked us through a few of these trending delivery methods, including Design Build (DB), Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR), and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) by drawing from our panel’s expertise as well as her own.

Some of the local projects discussed included Sundance Square Plaza, and the Fort Worth Fire and Police Training Center. No matter the project though, the message was clear: the most crucial component of a successful alternative delivery method project is the PEOPLE involved. Mark Linenberger, GM Linbeck Construction, explained that when choosing a team for an upcoming project, he prefers to compile a team of individuals, rather than a team of firms. Taking the time to peel back the layers of the individuals on the team leads to the level of trust necessary for an alternative delivery project to be successful. Whether you’re the owner or the contractor, trust and complete transparency is the key to innovative solutions.
