Partnering Program Objectives for Facility Owners

To get started, the facility owner must identify what they hope to achieve through their partnering program. These objectives could be

• that you feel that your construction projects are not “predictable”, consistently over budget and/or behind schedule and you’d like to improve the situation

• you could want to make sure you don’t end up with disputes and claims that eat up your budget and staff’s time

• you could want to improve on your current results (assuming you have data) so that you can lower your overall installed cost

• or, you might want to implement some of the other collaborative tools/delivery methods that are not effective without a culture of partnership

Objectives are very specific to each organization’s requirements and constraints.
