Elevate: Capital Projects Symposium 2017 is a nation-wide seminar series for owners of capital projects coming to a city near you. Leaders who attend will hear from some of the brightest minds in capital project management and have a chance to interact with their peers in a collaborative setting. 

The Challenges We Will Discuss 

Today, 85% of owners of infrastructure and building projects report having construction projects exceed their original budget and schedule . As such, the owner’s business plans have an increased risk due to inconsistent project performance. The reputation of the capital projects department is on the line as confidence from executive stakeholders will either be won or lost. 

What Is the Solution? 

Many owner organizations have turned to process improvement or alternative project delivery to improve performance. However, change introduces new risks that require project teams to behave differently. Best-in-class owners overcome and define new methods of collaborating and leveraging technology between owners, designers, contractors and suppliers. 

Why You Should Attend! 

Prepare to exchange performance benchmarks of projects from your industry, explore effective methods in reducing risk, and learn organizational strategies to support all types of project delivery methods from leading experts at private and public owners, management consultants, program managers and technology leaders. 

You Will Leave the Seminar With

  • Industry Insights: A Capital Project Performance Benchmarking Study. Choose from Government / Public Sector, Education, Healthcare or Buildings.
  • 2016 Dodge Outlook Report. The construction industry’s top economic report on construction and future spending trends. 
  • Relationships with peers of other owners like you from your industry. 
  • Best practices you can implement starting the very next day.
