Irving, TX, Continuing industry-based rather than project-based capital project solutions, the Leadership in Capital Projects (LinCP) Forum announces the North Texas Regional LinCP Forum for October 15 – 16 2009 in Irving, Texas. This event will be entirely focused on project delivery methods.

Owners/users, contractors/suppliers and A/E’s/consultants plan to address today’s most pressing challenges around integrated project delivery, competitive sealed proposals, construction-manager at risk and design-build, all within a collaborative setting. The Irving event will consist of key presenters and panel discussions, with facilitated discussions to exchange ideas and best practices and look for new tools and techniques to improve project outcomes.

Conceived in 2008 by Carol Warkoczewski, owner of Synergy Builders, the LinCP (pronounced “link-up”) Forums were a natural outcome of her work as a project manager, consultant and project process facilitator on more than 100 wide-ranging capital projects. Quickly recognizing that having collaborative “conversations” between the three key project stakeholders in capital projects can avoid project delays and save time and money in the process, Warkoczewski created the Forums.

“I thought,” Warkoczewski explained, “what would it look like if the three key stakeholder groups involved in capital projects got together to talk about contemporary design and construction industry issues in a collaborative way? The results have been astounding!”

As a result of the first LinCP Forum in February 2009, two initiatives are in development: “Capital Projects Scorecard,” and “21st Century Partnering.”

Jason Choyce with DPR construction says, “What an amazing event Carol has created. This is quickly turning into something really special and I'm proud to be a part of it. I applaud Carol for taking the lead on this!”

The Second Annual LinCP Forum will be February 24-26, 2010 in Austin, Texas.

The October forum will be held on at the Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas, in Irving. For more information on the LinCP Forums, contact Carol Warkoczewski at 512-263-5521 or visit the LinCP Forum website:

Event registration for the October 15-16 LinCP Forum will open by July 29, 2009, and corporate sponsorships are available.
