The official grand opening ceremony for St Jerome's University's 47 million IPD project is scheduled for October 1st at 3:00pm. The design and construction phases of the project were planned with vPlanner.
In an effort to enhance the academic and student experience, St. Jerome’s University (SJU) embarked on a $47 million campus redevelopment program, their largest capital investment since the early 1960s. Given their concerns about the scope, budget, and fast-track schedule, they decided to adopt an integrated project delivery (IPD) strategy, which they believed best aligned with the spirit of collaboration that is a cornerstone of the university’s mission. Ghafari Management Services (GMS), led by Samir Emdanat, vPlanner's product development manager, provided full IPD consulting, coaching, and management services. vPlanner was used to plan the design and construction phases of the project.
