The Capital Programs Institute (aka CPI or the Collaborative) is the UCOP program for design, construction and project management training. Under the coordination of Design and Construction, the program provides training for the capital programs staff on all University of California campuses and laboratories. The program is a collaborative effort, drawing on the expertise and years of experience among specialists to provide dynamic sessions covering:
- current policy, process, and contract requirements
- new delivery methods and associated contract documents
- trends and changes in industry practices
- innovations in methods and systems
- business orientation in the UC context for new project managers (“project management boot camp”)
- active discussion and idea exchanges to pollinate sister campuses with consideration of best practices and lessons learned
The collaborative’s primary audience is campus capital project managers, engineers and contract administrators. However, university staff whose work entails coordination with these project staff would also benefit (e.g., capital planners, physical & environmental planners, facility managers, EH&S inspectors, fire marshals).
This CPI coordinated event is sponsored by Design Services. Consultants who developed a report on the impact of the new energy code will present the report and answer questions.
Delivery Methods for Project Managers, EDPA/PSA and Design Issues, Webinar on Stormwater, continuation of webinar series on contract issues.
Presentation on Payment Application, Retention Options, Escrow Agreement, and more.
This CPI took the learner through the process of developing an overall capital program. Although capital planners gleaned quite a bit from this session, it also focused for project managers and facility staff.
Our CPI Critical Path Method (CPM) training was relevant to all professions that manage projects; construction, design, real estate, or otherwise.
