How Project Collaboration Can Achieve “Best in Class” Results

09-14-2017 13:54

Summary

The University of New Mexico, Ford Utilities had planned to complete a 7 MW expansion to their existing 9 MW combined-cycle cogeneration plant. Like on many University campuses, funding and space were “very tight” so a project execution approach had to be structured that would meet the funding requirements yet maintain the University’s desires to be actively involved in the design, procurement, installation and commissioning of the new integrated system.

This presentation will walk the audience through the step-by-step process of team building; selecting the execution strategy; developing the RFP; negotiations: risk and reward sharing; identifying the most cost effective roles and responsibilities; team goal setting; methods employed that insured continuous alignment of team members; Stakeholder formulation; productive design reviews and equipment submittal process; integrating construction while maintaining 24/7 utility operation; and joint commissioning of the finished product. The result is a “best in class” project execution that met the budget, project performance, quality standards and began commercial operation 3 months ahead of schedule.
