Improving Project Outcomes is an ongoing, open-discussion among the members of the four groups. Here are the resources that were born out of these collaborative sessions:

  • Step 1, Choosing the Right Delivery Method. This session was held September 6, 2017. Here is the recap of this session.
  • Step 2, Best Practices in Team Selection. This session was held December 6, 2017. Recap coming.
  • Prevention Through Design. Strategies were shared on preventing and controlling occupational injuries, illnesses, and fatalities by designing out hazards and risks.

  • Understanding the Separations Act. Candid discussion from public construction stakeholders on the multiple prime mandate.
