In this one-day class, co-sponsored with the Massachusetts School Building Authority, attendees will be immersed in the story of a specific public building construction project from the early planning stages through construction and the building “coming to life” as put to the test by the public end-users. Class participants will gain insight from project management teams, owner’s project managers, architects, contractors, building committee members and others. Class participants will discern the key ingredients for a successful project, lessons learned from bidding disputes and project setbacks, and post-construction experiences with the building from the perspective of people who helped to build it. Each Story of a Building class will take place in the building under discussion and attendees will get to tour and ask questions about the facilities. This MCPPO semester’s class will include a building that involved varied features and will include topics such as renovated structures, new construction, Model School designs, the Construction Manager at Risk delivery method, solar installations, synthetic turf athletic fields, and various responses to demands for environmentally friendly sustainable designs and technology updates. The class is open to all interested parties and does not require any prerequisite classes. It may be used for MCPPO recertification credit. The next class is scheduled to take place at Maynard High School on May 29, 2014.
