Advanced Work Packaging is a project execution methodology with roots in Alberta and grown by COAA. Embraced globally, a question remained on the clear return on investment of AWP implementation. With expertise and financial support from COAA, the University of Alberta’s NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Strategic Construction Modelling and Delivery, Dr. Aminah Robinson Fayek, PH.D., P.Eng., undertook a research project to develop a framework to capture the costs and benefits of AWP through various maturity levels.
After two years’ work, the research was announced and presented at the 2018 COAA Best Practices Conference and can be found here.
COAA members are encouraged to read the research and understand the implications of implementing Advanced Work Packaging on their projects.
