The High-Performance Building Council adopted the following defi nition for high performance buildings:
High-performance buildings, which address human, environmental, economic and total societal impact, are the result of the application of the highest level design, construction, operation and maintenance principles—a paradigm change for the built environment.
There is simply NO WAY we will achieve higher performance buildings across our existing inventory of building stock without and/or new buildings the adoption of more efficient construction delivery methods and process like IPD (integrated project delivery) and JOC (job order contracting), and the associate adoption of standardized cost data and cost data architectures, common taxonomies/frameworks (UNIFORMAT, MASTERFORMAT, COBIE, OMNICLASS) and the integration of various supporting domains and tgechnologies (CPMS, CMMS, CAFM, GIS, BAS, Cloud ….).
Facility owners know that changes in occupancy, project requests and building lifecycle and infrastructure needs sometimes arrive quite suddenly with tight completion timelines—-spurring the need for quick and professional construction services to accommodate end user requirements.
Potential solution: Already have a JOC program in place!
Job Order Contracting (JOC) is a construction project delivery method used by facility owners to access quick and professional contractor performance without compromising pricing predictability. It works
especially well for facility owners who might have high volume and/or backlog of smaller projects (mostly under $1M each), such as those found in educational, medical, municipal and federal facilities.
JOC involves indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) services—-which is basically an on-going construction services contract for projects yet to be determined by the owner. The method allows for mutually beneficial long-term relationships between facility owners and JOC contractors for construction services.
Therefore, a unique partnering approach to JOC contract management should be considered. This presentation will address what partnering actions owners can take to promote the successful use of JOC at their facilities.
In addition, this presentation will provide an overview of typical JOC contractor- submitted project proposal content as well as basic tips for the owner regarding JOC proposal review.
