BCIT retained Binnie in 2020 to help repair leaks in the roof of SE06. The project is valued at $3.6 million and is currently in the tender phase with an anticipated completion of early 2022.
As the representative of BCIT, Binnie aided in the procurement of a prime consultant that was directed to complete an investigation of the building envelope to identify and prioritize risks to the building, and stage design implementation. Binnie’s role as the Project Manager and Owner’s Representative includes managing cost, schedule, change, and stakeholders. In addition, Binnie was responsible for procuring and coordinating consultants, and contractors.
BCIT also retained Binnie in 2020 to help repair leaks in the roof of SE06 that have been ongoing for 16 years. The project is valued at $3.5 million and was split between two phases—the investigation phase, to determine the contributing factor of leaks in the building and determine a suitable design for the roof replacement, and the construction phase, to implement the new design through an active building effectively.
Binnie’s role as the Project Manager and Owner’s Representative included managing the project through the investigation and construction phases. Through the investigation phase of the project, Binnie managed the prime consultant and construction manager during the building investigation to identify and prioritize risks to the building, develop design solutions, stage design implementation, and assist BCIT in implementing a suitable procurement strategy for the project. Through the construction phase, Binnie’s role in managing cost, schedule, change, and stakeholders became even more critical to successfully replacing the roof in an active building with a limited budget contingency.
Through this project, Binnie has demonstrated the ability to manage risk and stakeholder needs through various strategies in the planning and construction phases of a project. During the investigation phase, Binnie proposed implementing a strategic contract set up to extract the greatest value from the project and mitigate risk during construction by implementing a Construction Manager (under a CCDC5a) in conjunction with a Prime Consultant. In doing so, the project team was able to implement the Construction Manager’s input regarding construction methods, concerns, and projected costs, and their ability to assist with invasive investigations. Through construction, Binnie re-evaluated the risk register monthly with the project team and maintained open and ongoing communication with stakeholders to understand the status of project risks.
The project is currently in the construction phase, with an anticipated completion of March 2022.
