ICPMA Conference Madrid June 2-3, 2015

The ICPMA recently  completed its 15th annual successful annual conference in Madrid, SPAIN June 2-3, 2015. The event had over 90 attendees representing countries from the Americas, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The conference was a joint effort, co-hosted by both ICPMA and CMAS (Construction Management Association of Spain).
 
The theme of the conference was centered on “New Trends in Project Management”. The first day’s subtopic focused on creating project partnerships or alliances and what ICPMA terms “A Better Way” of managing projects. Some successful projects utilizing this approach from the US, Ireland, Spain, Oman, and Germany were presented and discussed.
 
A dinner at the Madrid City Center  allowed everyone to enjoy some cool beverages, delicious Spanish food and vine, and a beautiful nighttime view of the  Madrid skyline. Highligt of the evening event was the awarding procedure of the 1st Allinance Award of the joint initiative “the better way”  from ICPMA and DVP. The two clients of two outstanding projects following the 7 principles have been selected by the awarding committee to receive this award. These clients are Grangegorman Development Agency for the campus project Grangegorman in Dublin and Ministry of Energy of Georgia, Mr Ilia Eloshvili, Deputy Minister for the Hydropower plant in Georgia.  
 
The second day of the conference involved discussions on BIM. Representatives from the academia, general practitioner, and ownership sectors interacted and discussed the benefits and necessities of these new technologies.
 
The conference ended with a construction site tour of an 1870 vintage masonry building, now being converted into  high end multi-residential living quarters. The general contractor INBISA allowed the group to review some of the foundation, framing, and masonry reinforcement required to make the structure last well beyond the 23rd century.
 
In summary, all conference participants were able to interact with worldwide construction management practitioners as well as gain valuable insight into the newest trends of project management.
