Rob Roy Parnell, Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities, Texas State University System“We are in the midst of a technology change. We need to change the way we communicate with each other about project outcomes . We deal with a very fragmented process; everybody has a silo of interest, and nobody wants to let others through that barrier. As a collaborative group, I‑LinCP can do so many things that don’t require an equity investment. You simply agree that you will do things in a way that serves the project outcome. When all the parties are involved early in a project – including the subcontractors – and everyone is on equal footing, you increase the odds of a positive outcome when the project is delivered.

I joined the I-LinCP board to help spread the word throughout Texas that our thought processes are evolving. This is a group that embraces new ideas.

All of us – owners, architects, contractors, subcontractors – are like concrete. Separately, the pieces have certain strengths, but when you put that recipe together, you have a much stronger material. So, moving forward together, we can have much more favorable outcomes.

Knowledge is power, and what you find with I-LinCP is a collaborative group of extremely smart people with a lot of experience. If they see you are in a bad situation, they will be more than happy to say, ‘We have been there; we understand. Let’s look at how we can better deliver successful projects.’

Every dollar being used on a project had better yield as much as it possibly can. There is no room for a bad story. When you walk into a LinCP Forum, there are no stupid questions; no one is better than another. We maintain an open-mindedness, 

because we all understand that if we don’t listen, absorb, and identify a new way to work together, then we will continue to experience some of the failures we have had in the past. We just can’t afford that any longer.”
