Crumbling Facilities & Infrastructure: Cooperative Solutions to Rebuild America

Presented By: Gordian Group

Description: How state & local agencies are taking back control of their facilities & infrastructures

America’s public facilities are declining faster than they are being improved, but a growing procurement trend is being used to take back control and offer a more efficient and less expensive solution.

  • Saves time from project bid to start construction
  • Controls Costs from start to finish 
  • Provides transparency and audit compliance 
  • Supports local job creation

Presented By: Gordian Group

Description: Campus facilities are fast approaching $100 per gross square foot in project backlogs

In this webinar, industry speakers outlined:

  • How American universities can prioritize the deficiencies in their facilities
  • Case studies and best practices to demonstrate how to implement a plan to start and complete these projects 
  • A delivery method to help stay within budget, expedite projects and save time using an innovative alternative construction procurement system

Presented By: Dan Cook, Southeast Operations Director, The Gordian Group
Harbin Farr, Southeast Georgia State College, Director of Facilities
Randy Davis, Augusta Technical College, Facilities Plant Director
Matt Peterson, NJPA, Contract Manager

Description: This presentation will cover Job Order Contracting (JOC) as a means to complete straightforward repair, maintenance and renovation projects quickly and at competitively-bid prices.  Institutions of higher education across the country have used JOC and cooperative JOC processes through governmental agencies, like the National Joint Power Alliance®, to complete myriad projects ranging from door and hardware replacement to classroom and laboratory conversions to energy efficient endeavors. Increasing enrollment, diminishing budgets, reduced staff and a growing list of deferred repair and renovation projects have taken their toll on higher education institutions. This webinar will highlight how colleges and universities of all sizes can use this construction procurement method through cooperative purchasing agencies to save time, use funding that has a deadline quickly, control costs and ease administrative burdens. The examples from our clients will focus on how ezIQC was able to quickly meet deadlines in order to use funding that was available for a limited time.
