Charles Pankow Foundation releases free project delivery selection tool for building owners, developers, and project teams
Using BOAT, building owners can reflect on their decision-making structures, cultures, and project management strategies and work with their project teams to mitigate roadblocks and pain points during project delivery.

The Charles Pankow Foundation (CPF) in partnership with the University of Washington's College of Built Environments, American Institute of Architects, and the Integrated Project Delivery Alliance, has unveiled a new tool, the Building Owner Assessment Tool (BOAT).

The free online tool helps building owners and project teams understand the challenges and alignments between their decision-making profile and different types of project delivery methods. Profiles are generated from rigorously researched questions and the analysis is presented in a simple spreadsheet format.

Using BOAT, building owners can reflect on their decision-making structures, cultures, and project management strategies and work with their project teams to mitigate roadblocks and pain points during project delivery.

Discussion of BOAT results fosters productive collaborative conversations identifying organizational challenges, setting expectations around the work, and designing specific processes to address challenges.

This research was conducted at the University of Washington and led by Principal Investigator Carrie Sturts Dossick, Ph.D, P.E.; Co-investigators Renée Cheng, FAIA; and Laura Osburn, Ph.D. Other team members included Lingzi Wu, Ph.D., Daniel Dimitrov, and Xianxiang Sean Zhao. Industry Champions were Markku Allison, Greg Gidez, Louise Pannetor, and Laura Stagner. Support was provided by Chandos Construction and P1 Consulting.
