Better Value and Outcomes through Integrative Design

In this session, we'll share our results and challenges with the Integrative Design Process (IDP) at Princeton, and show how you can use an IDP to realize better value and outcomes for your campus project.
Abstract: The Integrative Design Process (IDP) is a powerful collaborative framework that aligns with an institution's culture to cost-effectively achieve any project's desired outcomes. After adopting IDP incrementally since 2003, Princeton University has created a full program, including a roadmap and in-depth training. A well-designed IDP supports participation and buy-in from users and effective collaboration in project teams-that means fewer changes during the construction documents phase and construction, smoother turnover, and better performance. In this session, we'll share our results and challenges and show how you can use an IDP to realize better value and outcomes for your campus project.

Institutional Resilience

Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Change Management

In this session, we'll demonstrate through two University of Pennsylvania projects how institutions can approach sustained enrollment, cross-disciplinary collaboration, navigating the funding environment, and adapting to changing user needs in support of long-term institutional resilience.
Abstract: In this session, we'll demonstrate how institutions can approach sustained enrollment, cross-disciplinary collaboration, navigating the funding environment, and adapting to changing user needs in support of long-term institutional resilience. Over the course of two pioneering projects, the University of Pennsylvania recognized the following as key factors in building resilience: multi-modal learning, disciplinary convergence, entrepreneurship and applied research, project delivery, change management, and value of place. Join us to learn new change management and delivery methodologies that you can use to improve your built campus environment's ability to adapt amidst ever-evolving pedagogy.

Institutional Strategies in Project Delivery

Brown University Strategic Sourcing Program

Brown University's Strategic Sourcing program, a strategic partnership that streamlines planning, design, and construction for the university, delivers higher quality project outcomes with long-term financial savings.
Abstract: Brown University's Strategic Sourcing program, a strategic partnership that streamlines planning, design, and construction for the university, delivers higher quality project outcomes with long-term financial savings. We'll discuss this highly collaborative partnership model that brings together Brown stakeholders with designers, engineers, and subcontractors to develop optimal project solutions. We'll also cover the spectrum of project delivery models used for recent projects.

2019 Annual Conference | July 2019

A Survival Guide to Planning and Executing Phased Renovations

Abstract: Renovating campus buildings that are partially occupied is a frequent challenge. Planning and executing an efficient phased renovation optimizes resource use and minimizes disruption. This presentation will focus on lessons learned in three case studies of phased renovations, comprising mid-20th century science and humanities buildings as well as student housing. You will learn about best practices from projects across multiple building types as well as examine planning methodologies, design processes, and technical challenges for broader applicability.

2019 Annual Conference | July 2019

Keeping Facilities Projects Within Budget

Abstract: Higher education building projects include complex programs, multiple stakeholders, and ambitious expectations that can make the projects go over budget, requiring re-design. We will share how we used transparent predictive cost analytics before and during the programming phase to help key stakeholders prioritize wants and needs, allowing for a successful design-to-budget project. You will learn how to implement a predictive approach that minimizes costly re-design due to budget overruns.

Designing and Building Your Capital Project

Choosing the Method That’s Right for You

The first step in building your capital project is choosing the delivery method that best meets your institution’s needs and the project’s unique goals.

From Volume 46 Number 4 | July–September 2018

Abstract: Capital projects are designed and built in a number of ways. Each has its strengths and weaknesses, and each prescribes different roles for the owner, architect, and builder. The question is, which way or method best fits your institution’s criteria and project? This article presents a brief outline of the most popular methods by which projects are designed and built.

Design-Build Delivers Added Value to the University of North Georgia

Design-build delivery helps higher education institutions control costs, streamline processes and communications, and more efficiently and effectively meet project objectives.

From Volume 46 Number 2 | January–March 2018

Abstract: The design-build delivery approach, in which design and construction services are contracted through a single entity, has the potential to help higher education institutions control costs, streamline processes and communications, and more efficiently and effectively meet project objectives. This article examines the relationship between the University of North Georgia and design-build firm Pond, describing the process of design-build and highlighting two projects, the replacement of a dining hall floor and the renovation of a science classroom. The success of these projects demonstrates the benefits of integration and collaboration inherent in the design-build model.

Integrated Project Planning in a Construction Management Environment

The College of DuPage’s Naperville, Illinois, Satellite Campus

When the whole team knows the “why” behind the planning and design process, the result is a better “what.”

From Volume 45 Number 1 | October–December 2016

Abstract: The College of DuPage (COD) is a two-year community college located in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. COD leaders and administrators believe that the whole team’s understanding of the “why” behind the planning and design process is vital to ensuring the achievement of a higher-quality “what” after construction. Employing an integrated project team approach by adding a construction management group to the design and facilities team, COD completed $550 million in capital projects from 2001 to 2014. The final element of COD’s most recent master plan was the development of a prototype renovation for its four satellite campuses. The goal of the prototype was to elevate the classroom experience to state-of-the-art instructional and educational standards, improve the energy performance of the facilities, and offer the same services provided at the main campus. The overarching challenge was for the planners, facilities staff, and construction managers to work together to fit a large campus educational program into a single-building prototype.
