Collaborative design is an emerging
construction delivery process that applies multidisciplinary
communication and collaboration to building projects from conception
to completion. By incorporating elements such as pre-construction
services during the design of the project, key stakeholders can
streamline overall project delivery, reduce cost overruns, and
strengthen key relationships early in the process to meet owners’
project requirements. This technique can help boost efficiency,
minimize change orders, and generate positive results throughout the
lifecycle of the building.
In this presentation, the audience will obtain exclusive information based on a research study completed in 2013. Data and research findings will be presented, and a consulting engineer will give real-world examples of his use of pre-construction services and the benefits delivered from using a collaborative design model.
