Emergence of Collaborative Project Delivery
The transportation design and construction industry are starting to practice and move towards collaborative project delivery practices worldwide, aided by building information modeling (BIM) tools and processes. The current shortage of professionals trained in BIM remains a barrier to universal adoption of collaborative working practices in the industry. Collaborative project delivery requires not only the learning of new technologies/software, but also the learning of a new way of working. This means moving from a culture of siloed, paper and outdated information and duplication to one of information sharing, collaboration, and integrated project delivery. This presentation will focus on the gaps to achieve this delivery environment and build a bridge for these gaps through needed education, transparency, trust, policy and technologies.
- Understand actions needed to move to a collaborative project delivery process forward.
- Learn about various dimensions of modeling and integrations necessary for best practices.
- Discover barriers to effectively move culture to a collaborative project delivery process.
