opportunity to further demonstrate how their solutions provide a competitive advantage to their clients. Another session focusing on the cutting edge use of technology to improve collaboration, was presented by San Francisco International Airport’s Director of Infrastructure Information Management, Josephine Pofsky. In her presentation, “Leveraging the Power of Virtual Design and Construction,” Josephine shared how SFO has successfully integrated Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as “a centralized source of integrated infrastructure information that can anticipate, and better serve the needs of people, who are the pillars of our Airport.” Developing a Partnering Program takes commitment, especially from those at the top. Rob Reaugh, Vice President and Partnering Facilitator at OrgMetrics LLC led a Panel Discussion with the “world’s only city-wide Partnering Steering Committee,” the San Francisco Collaborative Partnering Steering Committee. They shared their process, challenges and benefits of forming this steering committee to improve project delivery. It was an informative discussion, and it will be exciting to hear from them next year, when they’ve had additional time to develop their program. The last presentations of the day were from winning project teams. The D/E Connector & Security Project Team, Trunk Highway 53 Relocation team, Oakland Airport Runway 12-30 Rehabilitation and the Owens Lake Dust Mitigation Teams all shared highlights of what helped their teams achieve awardwinning project outcomes. After a full day of educational content, networking and giveaways, we still had two more “firsts” for Collaboration 2018. Our Reception Dinner and Blowout Bash, where Rob Reaugh and his band “Jamnesia 2” rocked the house with hits from artists like Tom Petty and Van Morrison, as well as a few of their own original tunes. www.partneringinstitute.org

PARTNERING AWARDS IPI Professional Facilitator Certifications IPI-Certified Partnering Facilitators are IPI members who are already proven in the marketplace. These firms and individuals are industry leaders who have consistently assisted construction teams with developing a collaborative culture and who are familiar with the IPI Collaborative Partnering Program and the structured approach to partnering.

have experience with it. Contractors, CM firms and designers play a vital role in growing the Partnering movement. They serve as ambassadors, lending their recommendations for a better way to deliver a project, and sharing best practices so that their teams have the best chances for success. This year, we have a very unique ambassador. Judy Ross, Assistant Director of Aviation introduced the idea of a Pilot Partnering project to her own organization after being involved in an IPI committee and learning how Partnering has helped other Airports. Not only was this a pilot project, but the Mineta San Jose International Airport Security Perimeter Technology Project won a Diamond Level Partnered Project of the Year Award.

Partnering Pilots Deciding to partner a project for the first time is not an easy thing. IPI supports pilot efforts by connecting agencies to tools and resources, and to our growing network, because we know that the best way to learn about partnering is from those who

Facilitator:

OrgMetrics LLC

The Kickoff meeting was facilitated by a Professional Neutral Facilitator, helping the team establish their charter with goals, dispute resolution ladder and discussion of potential issues

Monthly scorecards were used to measure progress towards goals and the resolution of issues

As a result of their scorecard findings, the team collaborated new solutions for improving the online Roadway Worker Protection training

The Dispute Resolution Ladder was used successfully in resolving issues, keeping delays to a minimum and resulting in no claims for the project “Three bridges in downtown San Francisco carrying vehicular and pedestrian traffic over active Caltrain tracks needed to be demolished and rebuilt. In addition to the operating railroad with over 100 trains per day, we have utility corridors to accommodate AT&T, PG&E, Comcast, Quest and SFPUC, while maintaining operations at the 22nd Street Station, serving over 3,000 passengers per day. Talk about space, coordination and safety challenges!”

The Kickoff meeting was led by a Professional Neutral Facilitator, helping the team develop a charter with goals that were tightly linked to scope, schedule, quality and safety, along with other, project specific goals

An aggressive schedule with 24/7 shifts and a pro-active team enabled the Owner to advance the tunnel inspection by 30% within the same schedule

The project was completed on time & on budget

Zero claims, zero OSHA recordables “Adopting IPI collaborative partnering principles and practices proved to be extremely important to the successful return of the tunnel to service. Integration and coordination of the team members through clarification of roles and responsibilities, establishment of organization and communication protocols and channels, and implementation of the issue resolution ladder set the framework and course of action.”

“During a final lessons learned meeting, project Geotechnical Engineer, Brent Conner stated “ADOT and contractor partners build a couple hundred projects every year, but few approach the technical challenges of the scope of the SR 77 Near Summit project. When design optimism meets with the reality of construction, projects too often experience a breakdown in trust and cooperation. This project was different due to the commitment to Partnering shown by T.C. Fish, Bryan Teskey, Mindy Teague and Norman Bessler.”
