Faithful+Gould will join construction industry leaders at the Construction Industry Institute (CII) Annual Conference, August 3-5 in Boston, Massachusetts.

Faithful+Gould will be represented by Senior Vice President Tim Horner and Technical Director Tim Hannaway. Both have been active members of CII: Hannaway as a co-chair of the Federal Facilities Delivery Community of Practice and Horner recently joined the Globalization Community of Practice, also as a co-chair.

Conference attendees will hear from industry leaders and experts on many topics including two key note addresses: “A Brave New World: Who Will Survive When New Technology Reshapes the A/E/C Industry?” and “Global Construction Outlook: Divergences in the World Economy and Construction Markets”. CII will offer two CII Best Practice courses in conjunction with the conference: Project Change Management and PDRI Implementation Planning for Success.

Several CII Communities of Practice and Research Teams will also present in session at the conference. There are currently 25 active CII research teams researching a wide range of topics from "Best Practices for Succession Planning" to "Instantaneous Project Control Systems". As a member of the CII Board of Advisors, Faithful+Gould gets to vote on what topics are pursued by the institute. Our seat on the Board allows us to make our mark on the entire construction industry. Working together with our clients and other partner organizations, we are able to share our voice in the development of research topics and areas of focus that can be applied to construction projects in many different sectors.

In early July, Faithful+Gould hosted the Front End Engineering Design (FEED) Maturity research team at a workshop in our Denver office. The event was attended by industry professionals from Honeywell, Fluor, Southern Company, TechNip, Cargill, Georgia Pacific and others.

“This particular topic is pretty complex, and exciting to work on,” shared Scott Maish, program director and our Faithful+Gould representative on the research team. “We are assessing the maturity and accuracy of the engineering effort associated with Front End Engineering Design on industrial projects. Through defining the level of FEED completeness, better decisions regarding project strategy, cost and schedule can be made.”

Richard Tregaskes, a senior project manager in our Los Angeles office, is on the research team studying the Future Construction Needs of Virtual Information Models. He said, “This group is investigating the need for using virtual information models through project lifecycles, and how to improve information accessibility to support construction and leverage the models more effectively for the operations phase.”

CII, based at the University of Texas at Austin, is a consortium of more than 100 leading owner, engineering-contractor and supplier firms from both the public and private arenas. Faithful+Gould along with other leading organizations have joined together to enhance the business effectiveness and sustainability of the capital facility life cycle through CII research, related initiatives and industry alliances.
