Living in a world transformed l.jpg
LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Describe role of government and nature of our Construction Industry 19 years from now.

  • Actions State and Local Officials Can Take Now to Prepare for that Future


Living in a world transformed3 l.jpg
LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • FORCES AT WORK TRANSFORMING BOTH THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY AND WAY STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS REGULATE FOR SAFETY AND ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS

  • 6 FORCES AT WORK


Living in a world transformed4 l.jpg
LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • SIX TRANSFORMING FORCES:

    Demographic – aging population & immigration

    Environmental – energy costs, resource depletion & global warming

    Technological – rapid changes & new technologies


Living in a world transformed5 l.jpg
LIVING IN A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • 6 TRANSFORMING FORCES:

    Economic – changing role of nation in global economy

    Reduced Resources – demands for downsizing and increased efficiency

    Public Safety - greater demand – natural disasters and terrorism


Forces impacting state and local government l.jpg
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Demographics –

    - 300 million Americans – increasingly multi-cultural and multi-lingual – immigration pressure

    - Aging population – by 2020 – 40% over age of 50 / 25% over age of 65 –health care pressures costs – pressures on government pension funds

    - 50% of senior management retiring in next 10 years - loss of institutional memory


Forces impacting state and local government7 l.jpg
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Environmental –

    - Global Warming - Need to reduce greenhouse gases

    - World supply of Oil and Natural Gas – Replace with alternative fuels

    - Water and other resource conservation

    - Hazardous waste disposal


Forces impacting state and local government8 l.jpg
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Technological

    - Increased pressure on speed to market of new technologies e.g.- nanotechnologies / biomedical-mechanical

    - Continuing rapid change in information technologies & demand for interoperability

    - Aging infrastructure – roads, rails, bridges


Forces impacting state and local government9 l.jpg
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Economic

    - Global economy – “The World Is Flat” – T. Friedman; Jobs and skills going off-shore

    - Growing economic competitiveness within region as well as within world – Attract new and keep existing businesses in state/community

    - Ability to absorb and recover from disruptions


Forces impacting state and local government10 l.jpg
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Reduced Resources to Government

    - Tax payer & legislature limitations on revenues/expenditures

    - Demands to downsize government

    - Demands for greater governmental efficiency with less resources – “Do more with nothing”


Forces impacting state and local government11 l.jpg
FORCES IMPACTING STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Public Safety – Greater demand after 9/11 and Katrina:

    - Infrastructure secure from future terrorist actions

    - Better preparation for, response to and recovery from large scale natural disasters – Katrina/Rita/

    earthquakes, floods, winter storms.


2025 a world transformed l.jpg
2025 – A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • So What Will be the Impact of All of These Forces on Construction and the Way State and Local Governments Oversee:

    - Building Design & Construction

    - Disaster Preparedness, Response &

    Recovery?


2025 a world transformed13 l.jpg
2025 SUBCOMMITTEE, – A WORLD TRANSFORMED

CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IN 2025

“Using artificial reality tools, designers, and their clients can enter the structures they are planning. They can have the simulated experience of walking around in the structures”

- “Our Built World, 2025” Coates & Mahaffie

- Try & test different designs, materials, maintenance cycles, disaster scenarios, then build, inspect, commission, operate and maintain in computer


2025 a world transformed14 l.jpg
2025 SUBCOMMITTEE, – A WORLD TRANSFORMED

Building Information Modeling (BIM) - 3D / 4D design, construction, building operation, maintenance & renovation

Already being done - no blueprints, no change orders, suppliers use data to deliver and have components assembled on site.

- Virtual Builders Roundtable – 20 buildings

- C.A.V.E – Computer Analysis Visualization Environment


2025 a world transformed15 l.jpg
2025 A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

    - Research already underway - FIATECH,

    GSA, National Laboratories, Colleges & Universities


2025 a world transformed17 l.jpg
2025 - A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • Secure data bases of as built designs for first responders to use as they roll up on site of a disaster

    - Recommendation already before U.S. Department of Homeland Security and under discussion in several states – WA, OR, CA, PA, LA


2025 a world transformed18 l.jpg
2025 – A WORLD TRANSFORMED SUBCOMMITTEE,

  • REGULATORY STREAMLINING – MORE EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT ENFORCEMENT – NOT REGULATORY ABANDONMENT

  • State and local governments with smaller staffs identify/ eliminate areas of overlap and duplication that slow construction process

  • Apply information technology to interface with I.T. used in building design, construction, operation, maintenance and renovation.
