In October, our CMO, Peter Cholakis, was invited to present at the Pentagon to the Washington Headquarters Services Facilities Services Directorate (WHS-FSD). WHS-FSD supports approximately 64,000 civilian and military personnel, including the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Defense Agencies, and the military departments in the National Capital Region. It provides administrative and operational support, including space management, maintenance, repair and alteration of assigned buildings, custodial services, landscape maintenance, trash and debris removal, building operations, construction management, property management, and other support services, including oversight of the massive program for the renovation of the Pentagon.
The presentation, “Efficient Project Delivery – JOC Focus”, described the importance of collaborative construction delivery methods to achieving better outcomes, namely more construction projects completed on-time and on-budget. The ability for Owners, Contractors, and AEs to better manage the numerous facility renovations, repair, sustainability, and minor new construction projects leveraging Job Order Contracting (JOC) was outlined. Also noted was the role of supporting technology in deploying “best practices” consistently across an organization, enabling collaboration, improving productivity, and tracking performance.
