Value Management (VM) for Construction
Training Workshop - Module II

In this present day, construction professionals should not only acquire technical knowledge, they must also develop various management skills to achieve project success. A number of formal documents (WTBC16/1998; Tang2001; WTBC35/2002) strongly recommend a wider adoption of VM techniques in order to achieve excellence in the quality of construction products. However, qualified VM workshop facilitators are hard to come by in HK. To enhance the innovative team decision-making management techniques in construction industry, a full VM module II training will be arranged in August 2017 by the Hong Kong Institute of Value Management. The Module II course teaches VM in a project-based manner. Participants will be engaged in “real-time” decisionmaking using the VM methodologies during the course.

The training to be conducted by Dr. Mei-yung Leung who is the past president of HKIVM. She has more than 25 years’ practical /teaching experience in the construction industry/education and has participated in a number of prestigious construction projects in HK.

CPD Seminar: Holistic Risk Assessment Model for Target Cost Contract - A Reality or Myth?

The problems inherent with the traditional design-bid-build procurement method often lead to the adversarial working relationships within the construction industry. Target cost contracts, accompanied by a gain-share/pain-share arrangement serving as a cost incentive mechanism, have emerged in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Hong Kong with the aim of achieving better value for money and more satisfactory overall project performance under a collaborative working relationship. Moreover, target cost contracts are considered to be a desirable procurement option where project risks are taken jointly by the employer and the contractor.

Based on 10 years of research and teaching experience in target cost contracts, the two guest speakers, Cr Dr Daniel W.M. CHAN and Sr Dr Joseph H.L. CHAN will share with the audience of this seminar their personal academic knowledge and useful research findings covering the following areas of target cost contracts.

Seminar on "Experience Sharing on Effectiveness of NEC Contract"

The Government of HKSAR has adopted the New Engineering Contract (NEC) for more than 50 public works and civil engineering projects since 2009 and will continue to use NEC for projects called in 2016 / 2017. Although projects benefit from the use of NEC, there are concerns in contract administration, particularly in target cost contracts.

In October 2016, DevB promulgated a Practice Notes for NEC ECC to raise the awareness of common issues and to align practices in contract administration and project management for projects using the ECC across various stages from option selection, preparation of tender documents and tender assessment to construction.

The seminar will discuss the practical issues, existing common problems with possible solutions and recommendations for effective implementation of the NEC.

The talk will be delivered by our Council Member Mr. KH Fok who fulfilled various roles in the civil engineering industry for over 30 years. His thorough grasp of the NEC3 and other forms of contract have helped in his successful management of more than 50 construction projects.

Processes for managing project costs, schedule, quality, value, risk and implementation are plentiful. Still there can be problems with delivering optimally performing programs, projects and services! Why should this be?

This presentation introduced the critical-thinking process of value assurance. Closing the performance / value gas successfully is not just a 'quick fix', but it is attained through a series of pre-emptive, integrating actions that are conducted from end to end, i.e. throughout the lift cycle - from the investment decision phase, through development and execution, to routine operation and ultimate disposition.

Seminar - The Thinking Behind the Construction Industry Review Committee Report

The Construction Industry Review Committee (CIRC) appointed by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong SAR has comprehensively reviewed the current state of the industry in its recent CIRD report. The report contains many recommendations, all of which are concerned fundamentally with moving towards better value for money. This is a goal already familiar to Value Managers of course who will therefore appreciate the CIRC attempt to encourage this on a strategic scale.

This seminar provided an overview of the perceptions of the CIRC and the strategic directions in which the committee believes the Hong Kong construction industry should move in the future. Some of these directions are to overcome current weakness, some to recognise the newly arising demand for environmentally friendly behaviour and some andvance the technological levels in the industry. While providing an overview of the report the talks especially discussed whether the research community should be more closely involved with industry, as recommended in the CIRC report, and why, and how this might be achieved.
