Newforma CEO Joins Distinguished Panel of AEC Executives at Stagnito IPD Conference in Boston, August 20

Session to Explore the State of Integrated Project Delivery: An Executive Perspective

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - August 11, 2009) - Newforma®, Inc., a software company addressing the project information management (PIM) needs of architects, engineers and construction firms, today announced that its CEO, Ian Howell, will be among the panelists discussing "The State of Integrated Project Delivery: An Executive Perspective" at the Stagnito Integrated Project Delivery Conference in Boston on Thursday, August 20 from 4:15 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

"This panel of industry leaders has been recruited to discuss the current trend toward integrated practice in the industry and share examples from their respective organizations and business relationships," said Bradley Horst, AIA NCARB, Principal, Chief Information Officer, Einhorn Yaffee Prescott Architecture & Engineering, the session moderator. The panel session comes at the end of a full day of IPD insight and in-depth analysis on the topic.

Other panelists include: Jay Bhatt, Senior Vice President, Architecture, Engineering & Construction Solutions, Autodesk; Luciana Burdi, Senior Project Manager and VDC Leader, Division of Capital Asset Management (DCAM), Commonwealth of Massachusetts; Huw Roberts, Global Marketing Director, Building & Structural, Bentley Systems; John Pocorobba, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB, Chief Operations Officer, Einhorn Yaffee Prescott, Architecture & Engineering; and Lee Michael Kennedy, President & CEO, Lee Kennedy Co., Inc.

"Conventional project delivery methods are typically adversarial and more often than not result in over budget and/or late handover of facilities and in the worst of cases, litigation," said Howell. "The benefits of adopting the 'trust but verify' principles of IPD are that all stakeholders can benefit, not the least of which is the facility owner who can increasingly look forward to on-time, within budget and high quality project handover. Session attendees can expect a healthy discussion about the benefits of moving toward IPD and the pitfalls to avoid."

The 2009 Integrated Project Delivery Conference is a one-day conference to explore the most timely and important topics related to IPD, including learning sessions on operational execution, virtual design and construction tools, the latest codes and guidelines, risk and liability mitigation measures, best practices, as well as project management and business strategies.
