October 21, 2015

Gordian, a leading provider of construction cost analytics and estimating information, pricing data and procurement software and services, announced its President and Chief Operating Officer, Robert Coffey, will address the growing use of Indefinite Quantity Construction (IQC) systems at the upcoming meeting of the Central Association of Physical Plant Administrators.

The Oct. 12, 2015 presentation by Coffey, who also co-founded The Gordian Group, takes place at the 2015 CAPPA Conference in Manhattan, Kan. He will explore the different IQC systems and how they can help facility managers get construction projects moving by overcoming the challenges of compressed timeframes, budgets and workloads.

“Facility Managers across the country are regaining control of their facilities by using IQC to complete construction, repairs and alterations,” Coffey said. “The growing use of IQC offers tools to keep construction on track and on budget.”

Coffey’s presentation will include an overview of several IQC contracting systems, the pros and cons of each system, and best practices unique to the systems. The presentation will also cover the application of procurement laws and codes to the solicitation process.
