An owner organization’s journey to Integrated Project Delivery

Al Manshum, 2018 LCI board chair, spearheaded Advocate Aurora Health’s journey to Lean transformation and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and will share his experiences as the 20th Annual LCI Congress owner keynote.

As Advocate Aurora Health’s senior vice president of support services, Al manages approximately $2.4 billion in active construction projects, leads the maintenance of 150,000 pieces of equipment and oversees an annual operating budget of about $570 million. Al developed his organization’s first Master Contract using an Integrated Form of Agreement (IFOA) and led the journey to IPD that included seven projects valued at more than $650 million.

Having worked as an architect for 10 years prior to his role at Advocate Aurora Health, 2018 LCI Congress attendees will find immense value in Al’s unique perspective from both the owner’s and the designer’s point of view. Al carried his commitment to healthy and environmentally friendly design and construction with him when he took over Advocate’s environmental stewardship efforts and saved nearly $1 billion in capital projects that are either receiving or seeking LEED certification.

Al is an active member of both the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Healthcare Engineering (ASHE). He earned his Bachelor of Arts from the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Following Al’s keynote message on leading an organization’s Lean transformation on Thursday, October 18 at 8:15 a.m., three other owner thought-leaders will take the LCI Congress stage for the Owner Perspective Panel. Learn more about the Owner Perspective Panel on the online agenda.
