Best practice design tool - key insights from the webinar8 Nov 22
The Quality in Construction Design Best Practice Tool is a low-overhead, easy-to-operate, free tool that only takes around 20 hours per project to complete, and can deliver significant savings, delegates at GIRI's recent webinar learned. Here we round up the insights from the three presentations at the event.
Where it all started
Helen Soulou, head of programme assurance at Houses of Parliament Restoration & Renewal, explained the initial development of the tool during her time working in programme development at Heathrow, and its early use on construction projects at the airport.
What the tool is and how to use it
David Myers, senior associate at Shirley Parsons Project Services, talked delegates through the subsequent development of the tool, including canvasing international expertise and feedback from organisations such as the Association of Design Management and GIRI. He also explained the operation of the tool and the benefits it can bring.
Anita McReynolds-Lidbury, director of quality at the Austin Transit Partnership, explained how the tool will be used on this major US rail project to reduce risk, lower costs, and foster a right-first-time delivery.
