A Partnering Meeting

SLAC/Turner Subcontract



In order to accomplish this Subcontract most effectively, the University intends to form a cohesive partnership with the CM/GC, the Architect/Engineer and, in the event option is exercised for Phase 2, sub- subcontractors, to ensure timely and cost-effective completion of the Subcontract.

This partnership would strive to draw upon the strength of each organization in an effort to achieve a quality project done right the first time, within budget, and on schedule. It would include, but not be limited to, consideration of each other's interests and requirements; fostering clear, objective communication among all persons who are involved; development of mutual goals and objectives and strategies for implementation; and periodic objective evaluation to assure these goals and objectives are being met.


A Partnering Meeting

SLAC/Turner Subcontract

In addition, the CM/GC shall provide efficient and comprehensive project management through all phases of the project, with particular emphasis placed on the capability to work in partnership with SLAC, consultants, and contractors during design and construction.


A Partnering Meeting

One of the most useful models for building a collaborative team is that developed by

Roger Fisher and William Ury in Getting To Yes. This model consists of

the following strategic steps:

  • 1. Separate the people from the problem

    • 2. Separate positions from interests

    • 3. Create options for mutual gain

    • 4. Look for appropriate criteria or standards
