As Gulf Coast Deals With Isaac Aftermath, Forum Addresses “Risk and Recovery”

“Dealing with Disasters, Resources, and Politics,” is theme of Gulf Coast Regional LinCP Forum



The Woodlands, Texas (August 31, 2012) – "Risk and Recovery: Dealing with Disasters, Resources, and Politics,” is the theme of the Gulf Coast Regional Leadership in Capital Projects (LinCP) Forum to be held on September 14, 2012, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, in The Woodlands, Texas (just north of Houston).

While the theme of this Forum was conceived earlier this year, its three topics addressing disasters, resources, and politics may be a part of what U.S. gulf coast facility owners and other capital project stakeholders need to hear and discuss as they consider their response to re-building and recovering from this week’s devastating winds and flood waters from hurricane Isaac.

Topic #1 is especially relevant to the current gulf coast situation: “UTMB - Destruction and Recovery: Managing a Billion Dollar Re-Construction.” Steven LeBlanc, Asst VP, Facilities Risk Management, University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston (UTMB) will lead the presentation with a panel discussion to follow. UTMB suffered major damage and destruction of buildings, infrastructure, communications, and utility systems due to Hurricane Ike. Once the political victory had been secured to maintain facilities on the Island, the logistics and management challenges of a fast implementation of over $1 billion of design/construction work became real. How is this being accomplished, what lessons can be learned?

The Forum’s keynote presentation, “The Woodlands - Weathering the Storm and Challenges of Sustainable Development,” will be presented by Barry Goodman, Founder and President, The Goodman Corporation, Robert Heineman, VP Planning, The Woodlands Development Co., and Don Norrell, President, The Woodlands Township.

Other topics include - Topic #2: “Addressing Resource Challenges during Economic Recovery,” and Topic #3: “What’s Next? Political Impacts on Healthcare and Education Projects.”

Silver sponsors for this Forum are: ccrd Partners, Haynes Whaley, KGA Architecture, Satterfield & Pontikes, TEECOM, The Goodman Corporation.  Collaborator sponsor is SKANSKA.

Leadership in Capital Project (LinCP) Forums are organized by the Institute for Leadership in Capital Projects (I-LinCP), a nonprofit headquartered in Austin, Texas, with its mission to: Evolve the capital projects industry through sharing of knowledge for optimized leadership, delivery, and performance.
