Innovation in Project Delivery and Facility Management
The School of Building Construction welcomes John Schaufelberger, Dean of the College of Built Environments at the University of Washington. Please join us for his presentation on "Innovation in Project Delivery and Facility Management," which will explore some of the challenges being faced in the delivery of contemporary construction projects and the soft skills needed by construction leaders for successful project delivery. Expanded use of collaborative project delivery strategies and project management technologies are discussed as well as use of lean construction and off-site construction techniques. Use of building information models for project control and facilities management are also described.
Dean Schaufelberger has taught both graduate and undergraduate courses in the areas of construction equipment management, construction practices, construction contract procurement, construction firm management, and international construction project management. A licensed professional engineer, he served thirty years as an officer in the US Army Corps of Engineers prior to joining the University of Washington faculty. He managed major public works construction projects in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, as well as at many locations throughout the United States. He has represented the United States in negotiations with foreign governments.
