Topics will include ways to assess, compare, and mitigate risk; project-related failures; managing your workforce; complying with changing regulations; emerging risks; and avoiding the trap of over-anticipating one kind of risk while failing to see another as it develops.

Keynote Address

Evolution of Risk in Design, Engineering and Construction

The construction industry has historically been slow to change, but over the last decade, the changes have accelerated dramatically. While some of these concepts may have been around for a while, there is a push to begin embracing and implementing these changes more rapidly. Some of the key change initiatives are Integrated Project Delivery (IPD), Building Information Modeling (BIM), environmental (LEED), sustainability, modular/off-site fabrication, and Public-Private Partnerships (PPP). Each of these changes has some level of risk and potential for cost impact, but when several are combined on a single project, the risk and uncertainty grows exponentially. In addition, compliance requirements are increasing, and the realm of uncertainty around future, unforeseen events, continues to grow.

Despite the increasing project risk profile, the construction market remains very competitive with ongoing fee and cost pressure, so finding the right balance is an ongoing challenge. As a result, organizations are rethinking and redefining the process by which they evaluate and price pursuits based on the changing risk profiles, as well as the cost implications of implementing the new initiatives.

This keynote session will explore ways to identify, evaluate, mitigate and track the risks, and will offer practical insight into the process for determining the right Risk Management approach within an organization.
