Mark Nagata, PSP Featured in Building Design + Construction Magazine’s “40 under 40” List

May 15, 2011

Trauner’s Mark Nagata has been selected as one of Building Design + Construction Magazine’s “40 Under 40.”

Building Design + Construction’s “40 Under 40” list highlights 40 of the most remarkable individuals in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries that are under the age of 40. In order to be considered for the list, one must be nominated by submitting a write-up describing the candidate’s strengths and accomplishments. Each nominee is then judged on the following categories: leadership skills, inventiveness, sustained career progress, “people” skills, client relations, academic training, dedication, personal integrity, technical skills, and community outreach. Last year, there were 275 nominations for the list.

Mark was nominated and selected for this list based on his dedication to Trauner and our clients; his industry contributions, including his work on the book Construction Delays, Understanding them Clearly, Analyzing them Correctly, his extensive contributions to AACEI’s Recommended Practice No. 29R-03 for Forensic Schedule Analysis; and his constant desire to better himself and to further his career, among many other things.

Mark and the rest of the “40 Under 40” award winners will be featured in the May 2011 issue of Building Design + Construction. Please join us in congratulating Mark on this outstanding achievement. He definitely deserves it.

Rick Burnham’s Article Featured on Cover of Owner’s Perspective Magazine

May 01, 2011

Rick Burnham’s excellent article entitled, “Effectively Managing the Challenges of GMP Contracts,” has been published in the Construction Owners Association of America’s magazine Owners Perspective, as a six-page cover story.

The article, which is published in the Spring 2011 issue, describes practices that can lead to problems on GMP contracts, and gives advice on how owners and contractors can manage this type of contract more effectively. Some of the practices Rick mentions in his article are: poor administration of allowance items; waiting to resolve value engineering proposals until after the GMP is agreed to and the contract is signed; lack of a good working definition of what is a “change to the GMP”; and misconceptions regarding contingencies and how to deal with “buyout savings” and “buyout overruns.”
