brings the partnering philosophy to every project.
We lead Indiana
in Partnering, a way to improve cooperation. Developed by the Corps
of Engineers, Project Partnering is a structured program with a
simple premise: if the key players focus on communication, understanding
and trust, the project will go more smoothly.
We have promoted Partnering to these owners:
- Dow Chemical
- U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
- State of Indiana
- Capital Improvements Board of Marion County.
Dow Chemical’s Destec subsidiary was so enthusiastic
about the Partnering Jungclaus promoted that it demanded other major
project firms also participate in the Partnering program. Thus it
is true to say that all parts of the $450 million coal gasification
plant (pictured above) were built with the Partnering model
that Jungclaus promotes.
Partnering as we practice it is a hard-nosed
program that identifies specific problems the team must solve before
they become major obstacles. In every case it has been an unequivocal
success. Our experience mirrors a Construction Industry Institute
Credits Partnering for:
- Improved quality on 95 percent of Partnered
- Improved communication and teamwork 82 percent
of the time
- Making jobs more productive and less adversarial.
Let us do it for you!
