Title: ENHANCING ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS, PUBLIC SAFETY


1
ENHANCING ECONOMIC COMPETITIVENESS, PUBLIC SAFETY
DISASTER RESILIENCE THROUGH STREAMLINING AND
EFFECTIVE USES OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY
  • Presentation by Robert Wible, Secretary to the
    National Partnership to Streamline Government
  • Building Regulatory Process Coalition Meeting
  • Quincy, MA November 28, 2006

2
ENHANCING COMPETITIVENSS, PUBLIC SAFETY
DISASTER RESILIENCE
  • OUTLINE
  • Shared needs for greater efficiency caused by
    major forces impacting both construction and
    building regulatory community
  • Partnership initiatives addressing those forces
  • Possible actions to assist Massachusetts

3
COMPETITIVENSS, PUBLIC SAFETY DISASTER
RESILIENCE
  • PERSPECTIVE FROM THE NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP TO
    STREAMLINE GOVERNMENT / ALLIANCE FOR BUILDING
    REGULATORY REFORM IN THE DIGITAL AGE
  • Public/Private Partnership of Associations
    Government Agencies established July, 2001
  • NGA, NACo, Mayors, NASCIO, Federal Agencies HUD,
    DOE, NIST, GSA, NSF
  • AIA, NAHB, AGC, BOMA, APA, ULI .
  • Share best practices to enhance public safety,
    competitiveness by increasing effectiveness and
    efficiency of government oversight of
    construction process through streamlining and use
    of I.T.

4
COMPETITIVENSS, PUBLIC SAFETY DISASTER
RESILIENCE
  • National Partnership/Alliance Mission
  • Enhance nations public safety, disaster
    resilience and economic competitiveness through
    streamlining the nations regulatory process to
    make it more effective and efficient.
  • Making state and local government regulations
    more effective and efficient not regulatory
    abandonment

5
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Six Forces Transforming Both The Construction
    Industry And Way State And Local Governments
    Regulate
  • Drawn from Architectural Security Codes and
    Guidelines new McGraw-Hill publication

6
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • SIX TRANSFORMING FORCES
  • Demographic aging population immigration
  • Environmental energy costs, resource depletion
    global warming
  • Technological rapid changes new technologies
  • Economic changing role of nation in global
    economy
  • Reduced Resources demands for downsizing and
    increased efficiency in government private
    sectors
  • Public Safety - greater demand, natural disasters
    and terrorism

7
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • A BRIEF LOOK AT FOUR OF THOSE FORCES
  • Environmental
  • Technological
  • Economic
  • Public Safety

8
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Environmental
  • Global Warming
  • Need to reduce greenhouse gases /support green
    technologies and construction sustainability
  • World supply of oil and natural gas
  • Replace with alternative fuels and increase
    energy efficiency
  • Water and other resource conservation
  • Waste disposal

9
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Technological
  • Increased pressure on speed to market of new
    technologies e.g.- nanotechnologies /
    biomedical-mechanical
  • Continuing rapid change in information
    technologies demand for interoperability BIM,
    SMARTcodes ICC
  • Aging infrastructure roads, rails, bridges

10
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Economic
  • Global economy
  • The World Is Flat T. Friedman
  • Jobs and skills going off-shore
  • Growing economic competitiveness
  • region as well as within world
  • Attract new and keep existing businesses in
    state/community
  • build at less cost/waste faster, better,
    safer
  • Ability to absorb and recover from disruptions

11
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Public Safety - Greater demand after 9/11 and
    Katrina for
  • Keeping our infrastructure secure from future
    terrorist actions
  • Better preparation for, response to and more
    rapid recovery from large scale disasters.

12
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Lessons from Katrina Other Disasters
  • - Need for uniform statewide building codes,
    certification training for code officials
  • - Need for upgraded code provisions for wind
    and water penetration
  • - Need for regional and not just statewide
    mutual aid agreements for building
    departments/contractors as well as first
    responders
  • - Need for backup statewide permit plans
    review

13
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Blue Cascades III Exercise in Pacific NW (3/06)
  • - Secure database for first responders of as
    built designs
  • Identify and pre-certify construction industry
    from outside region to support first responses
  • Recovery - use of information technology speed
    damage assessment and permit issuance
  • Uniform building permit forms statewide, common
    inspection systems to provide backup support

14
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • Relevance to Commonwealth
  • - Year 5 of 15-20 year more intense hurricane
    cycle
  • - Winter storms
  • - Potential terrorist targets
  • - Smaller geographical area from which to draw
    resources in large scale event
  • - 80 of all small businesses fail if closed
    for 3 weeks

15
STREAMLINING THE NEED
  • For Past 10 Years These Forces Have
  • increasingly impacted how we build and regulate
    construction
  • stimulated new products technologies
  • added national initiatives to identify and reduce
    unnecessary costs and inefficiencies

16
CONNECTING SYSTEMS NATIONAL INITIATIVES
  • NEW INITIATIVES
  • Greater Code Uniformity
  • ICC
  • Research on more effective and efficient building
    design construction materials, processes
    technologies
  • NIST /GSA /Colleges Universities
  • New Information Technologies and Interoperability
  • 3D 4 D design
  • GIS
  • Wireless Technologies
  • RFID
  • Web-based services

17
CONNECTING SYSTEMS NATIONAL INITIATIVES
  • INITIATIVES TO ADDRESS THESE FORCES
  • New Organizations/Initiatives to Promote More
    Effective and Efficient Construction, Building
    Operation Regulation
  • - U.S. Green Building Council
  • - FIATECH
  • IAI
  • PATH
  • buildingSMART
  • Alliance for Building Regulatory Reform in
    Digital Age / National Partnership to Streamline
    Government

18
CONNECTING SYSTEMS CONVERGENCE OF INITIATIVES
  • THE NEED FOR CONVERGING EFFORTS
  • Each of these initiatives and organizations
    generally address one or more but not every
    segment of
  • construction industry
  • construction process
  • technology
  • level of government
  • or even different governments within same state /
    region

19
CONNECTING SYSTEMS CONVERGENCE OF INITIATIVES
  • RESULTING IN
  • a general lack of cohesive approach that
    recognizes, supports, encourages coordination and
    where appropriate integration of these
    initiatives.
  • CASE IN POINT - BIM REGULATORY SYSTEM

20
CONNECTING SYSTEMS CONVERGENCE OF INITIATIVES
  • As Virtual Design Construction, and
    greater demand for disaster resilience increase
    they meet a regulatory system where
  • Less than 10 of building departments use IT
  • Less than 1 building departments accept
    electronic plans submittals
  • Even smaller number of jurisdictions conduct
    electronic plans reviews even then for only
    certain portions of buildings

21
CONNECTING SYSTEMS CONVERGENCE OF INITIATIVES
  • CREATING CHOKEPOINTS IN THE ROAD TO THE FUTURE
    The Building Regulatory Process
  • At Virtual Design Conference, December, 2005 at
    GSA
  • 3D/4D project in Silicon Valley had to print out
    and provide shop drawings for project
  • Currently no interoperability in building
    department data between jurisdictions between
    jurisdictions and construction slowing disaster
    response and recovery

22
COORDINATING ACTIONS TO LINK INITIATIVES
