This Year We Have Added a Special Event to the Day!
Tuesday, 27 October 2020
Your IPDA Board of Directors has initiated the planning process for the 2020 Annual Action Agenda Setting Workshop and AGM. In an attempt to minimize having plans disrupted with a potential second wave of Covid-19, the decision has been made to host this year’s meeting and workshop utilizing some of the same technology that has allowed Big Rooms to continue with travel restrictions in place. We look forward to this format allowing more participation from our broader membership!
As we announced in the June update, this year the AAAPM is being held virtually. As a result of this, we are able to offer our members a Value Add to the event. We are bringing in Shawn Kanungo, Innovation Strategist, for an energetic, fun and informative session discussing how to create a new environment when it comes to projects in this brand new world post-pandemic.
Watch for registration details!

- A significant amount of design work had been done traditionally when it transferred over to a new IPD team
- The core team was selected to do 3 projects and so it has allowed some unique metrics to be developed, tracking improved performance over multiple projects.
- The team has seen the continuous improvement applied to some areas of the project like team selection and training.
- Also, the team will touch on lessons learned from going through a full stoppage of construction and then restarting in response to Covid 19
- Panelists include Dan Drouin (Groupe Nordik), Michael Jackson (WSP), John Ford (LEA) , Laura Plosz (Group2 Architecture) , Joe Perry (Chandos)
Episode #2 – The Canada Games Aquatic Centre Upgrade, Kamloops BC
Originally Recorded Thursday, 21 May 2020
Now Available on Members Only Portion of IPDA Website
This is the second in a series of LIVE online forums and will showcase the Canada Games Aquatic Centre Upgrade in Kamloops, BC. This is a fairly unique IPD project to date as it is a renovation being completed by a public owner, the City of Kamloops. This is a project that, during Validation, identified two phases to allow for the City Counsel to make an informed decision about how to expand in the future and if it was the right choice to do so now while the team was mobilized or come back to the site.
This session’s panelists will include 4 of the project team members; Matt Kachel (City of Kamloops), Bert De Bruin (Altapro Electric), Ian Chan (Stantec Mechanical) and Kristy Neish (WSP Structural). Panelists will provide their experience on this project including why the City of Kamloops would agree to a renovation project moving forward with the IPD method, the complexity of the project and how complex tasks of pricing and phasing were broken down and well understood to minimize risks typically associated with renos, rolling procurement and the tracking of moving parts to minimize the need for change orders. The team will also discuss specific elements that created a strong team culture allowing for resilience in responding to various outside forces.
