June 8, 2017 - 11:30am - PennFirst: The IPD Team that Tackles Urban Planning an AIA/GBCA/COAA Joint Event

A team of designers, healthcare specialists, engineers, and builders, self-named the "PennFIRST Team," is nearly two years into the design and construction effort of a New Patient Pavilion for Penn Medicine. Using an integrated project delivery (IPD) strategy, the team is collaboratively tackling complex urban planning, design, and construction challenges inherent in an approximately 1.5 million-square-foot facility on a dense urban site. Learn how shared integration space, parametric cost modeling, PITs, HBDI, decision trees, full-scale mock-ups, and live simulations are being put to the test to encourage multidisciplinary collaboration and promote team problem-solving and innovative thinking.

Speakers include:
Daryl Bodewin, HDR, Inc.
Steven Greulich, Penn Medicine
Ed Hanzel, L.F. Driscoll
Mack Stulb, L.F. Driscoll

Learning Objectives include:

• Explore real-life implications of using IPD to develop a large, highly integrated urban health complex.

• Learn how a well-conceived integration space positively contributes to a collaborative multidisciplinary planning and design effort.

• Understand the critical importance of thorough staff on-boarding, behavioral tendencies, servant leadership, and HBDI analyses.

• Explain how a project team PIT structure can integrate disciplines, solve design and construction challenges, and manage construction costs.

*** AIA members should register at, COAA PA members and local owners are invited as our guests. Please RSVP to Angela Hendrix at or 215-568-7015.

Join the Construction Leadership Council on a tour of the Corporate Headquarters of AmQuip Crane Rental LLC.

AmQuip Corporation was founded by Joseph L. Wesley, Sr. in 1967 and was originally known as the American Equipment Rental Company. 

In the late 1970's and early 1980's, the American Equipment Rental Company developed a major operations center and office in Vancouver and made other regional acquisitions to become a major US player in the crane rental industry.  After successfully re-trenching and managing through the early 2000's economic downturn, and refocusing under the name AmQuip "The Crane People", the company grew significantly, organically, and through acquisition. 

In June 2007, the company was acquired by an investor group comprised of Altpoint Capital Partners, Lehman Brothers, Joseph L. Wesley, Sr. and Bard Capital Group LLC.  Richard Bard of Bard Capital Group LLC was named Chairman of the Board.

AmQuip now has facilities in Atlanta, Georgia; Bensalem, Pennsylvania; Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania; Boston, Massachusetts; Carteret, New Jersey; Nashville Tennessee; Murfreesboro, Tennessee; Memphis, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Birmingham, Alabama.
