AIA & The Builders Team to Present Ohio Construction Reform Ed Session
2/16/2016

The AIA’s Eastern Ohio Chapter and The Builders Association teamed recently to present an afternoon educational program that centered on implementing Ohio’s new construction delivery methods. Ohio is encountering the first changes in the state's method of performing public construction since the 1800s. The changes are referred to as The Ohio Construction Reform.

According to the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission web site, the Reform “substantially alters how public improvement projects are completed and allows for the use of alternative construction delivery methods, such as General Contracting, Construction Manager at Risk and Design Build. Each public authority now has the option to select the best delivery method for their specific project, including the existing multiple prime contacting method for construction,” 

At the AIA-Builders event, a diverse group of construction professionals gathered at the Stambaugh Auditorium to hear from and converse with William C. Prenosil, Sr. Planner, Ohio School Facilities Commission, and Rodwell King of GDP Group.

“This program was a good opportunity for our members to ask questions to the OFCC about the implementation of the new delivery methods,” said Kevin Reilly, Executive Vice-President of the Builders.
