Program Overview

RFI's: Changing the Design and Construction Communication Paradigm 

Our annual SEAW & WA ACI joint meeting will take on a process that is well known and often one of the construction industries biggest challenges–RFI’s. What the design and construction industry is doing is not working. Costs are escalating, Productivity is decreasing. We need to change our thinking. We’ll seek to clarify the problem, discuss possible solutions and ask, “Where do we go from here?”

  • Hyper level accuracy in drawings – Where do we see change happening what are we doing to embrace change and technology.

  • Construction Administration costs, adding Overall Project Costs, and Escalation – What are doing to improve, quality of design, collaboration with the contractors and 21st century speed of information.

  • What will the Owner Design and Contractor interface look like in 3-5 years.

  • How is Lean Production Systems and Lean Thinking changing design, what’s working what’s needs to be improved.

  • What technology is available or coming that can improve the Build Experience and How is technology being incorporated into the work.

Join us for an open discussion, presented by our local panel of WA ACI and SEAW construction professionals representing the project team on how RFI’s complicate the fluidity of construction and reduce efficiency and productivity. Early project team engagement, communications, and identifying an RFI process and outcomes, all add up to providing key clarifications and suggest a new way to solve old problems.
