The Goodman School of Business at Brock University has recently completed a $24M addition and renovation to their building. Two additions were added and the existing building was completely refreshed. We added new classrooms, a large 2-storey Atrium with glass walls, and many other learning and research spaces. This was all done while the building continued to be used as a Business School.
I (Ken Klassen) am a Professor of Operations Management, and have taught Project Management for over 15 years. I had the privilege of taking on the role of Project Lead, which included both design and construction phases, meeting regularly with the Architect, the Construction Contractor, Brock Facilities Management, and Chairing the Project Steering Committee which included Brock’s VP, Finance and a number of other influential people from the President’s Office. I also ended up taking on quite a few other tasks, including scheduling all the moves – Faculty and Staff had to move in phases as different sections of the building were renovated.
This session will provide a tour of the new building (especially the spaces conference attendees wouldn’t otherwise see) and there will be lots of time for discussion and questions regarding this project and project management in general.
If you are interested in this session, please check the box below. We are currently planning session schedules and will determine the date and time of this session once we understand the interest in this session - whether we need to run one or more times. Once we have determined the date and time of the session, we will send that out to all those who have expressed interest.
