Terry Pellegrino presents at 2017 NACUFS Midwest Regional
Many campus projects have varying timelines, requirements and methods to get to the end result. We as Foodservice Operators only have one common goal – to end up with spaces that work in locations where students will come with enough support space to run our operation efficiently. The University of Iowa and the University of Kansas were asked to create two very different documents that went out with their RFPs. Both of these documents had great ideas and both of them caused challenges.
This presentation included case studies from projects on these two campuses. Terry and her colleagues shared lessons learned and best practices to enable operators in helping their department create successful projects. We received positive feedback from those who attended the session in that it gave them a better understanding of reporting relationships involved in a construction project and how to make sure you as operators can be involved.
If your campus is planning a renovation or building project whether it be a Public-Private Partnership or a Design-Build, it helps to understand construction terms and phases. Knowing the players and timelines of Design-Bid-Build, Design-Build, Construction Management at Risk, etc.
