Featured Sessions & Speakers:

Physical Environment Survey Readiness Hot Topic

OHSU selected a project team with a history of collaboration and integrated delivery. The team developed programming for a new 15-story, 500,000 sf Inpatient Addition (IPA) to the existing campus. This new tower is constructed on a constrained site and connects to the existing hospital with three bridges spanning the upper campus drive, the main access through campus. One of the project’s goals was to leverage early input from trade partners. Trade partners developed content for the building permit submission with the intent to have a fully coordinated design model. There was a clear advantage to having trade partners develop this model content as part of the design package and coordinate the work with design in lieu of developing and coordinating deferred submittals after permit approval. In order to eliminate the inherent waste in a traditional process of deferred submittals, the team accepted the goal of eliminating all deferred submittals. Attendees will learn from a wide representation of team members who will discuss their goals, assumptions, planning efforts, failures, and recovery efforts to meet this goal.

Building on Team Success: Three Progressive Design-Build Clinics

The Vancouver Clinic selected a Progressive Design-Build team of Andersen Construction & ZGF Partnership, & OTAK CPM to lead three new clinic buildings in Ridgefield, Camas and Salmon Creek, WA. The projects were designed and built in succession and each project grew in square footage and complexity. For the final project at Salmon Creek, Pacific Medical Buildings joined the team as development lead. The Progressive Design-Build model was highly successful as efficiencies were gained from project to project. General contractor collaboration from the beginning of design and the early involvement of key trade partners proved to be valuable in the integrated process. The majority of trade partners went on to work on at least two of the projects, adding more efficiency to the clinics.

“Brews and Views” Libations Tour | $165

Paddling the Deschutes River provides a dramatic means to take in the best of this area. After some instruction on paddling, we’ll head out on the river, amongst the bald eagles, native rainbow trout, and beaver. The aspen groves and impressive lava flows provide spectacular backdrops to our journey, as our guides share the natural and cultural history of the area, and highlight how our geology and watershed help to create the incredible beers Bend is well-known for. And the journey wouldn’t be complete without a tasting of these delightful brews!
