“Gafcon was instrumental in the transition of the LACCD bond program from the previous incumbent to the current team. They were responsible for planning, transition, and ongoing operations of multiple critical systems including everything from custom budgetary applications to physical servers. I would not hesitate to work with them again in the future.”

In 2013, the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) bond program was under scrutiny by the media. The District hired AECOM, with Gafcon as a partner, to take over the management of the District’s Proposition A/AA and Measure J Bond Programs. The Gafcon team quickly deployed to relocate and set up IT systems and new processes. We applied new technology to capture data to increase the program’s stability and compliance. With these added program controls, the new program management team was able to better analyze data from scheduling, cost, and performance perspectives. The result was the presentation of information and trends that allowed District and program leadership to make well-informed decisions.

Gafcon’s team of building information modeling (BIM) experts developed BIM guidelines, standards, and implementation plans for the District. Our work ensures construction data relevant to reducing costs of the operation phase of the buildings is being collected and controlled in a manner that would create the highest value. After a year on the program, the team, under AECOM’s leadership, was recognized for its work by the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) through the receipt of the 2015 Program Management Merit Award and Bentley Systems, Inc. with the 2016 Be Inspired Award for Innovation in Government. LACCD’s Oversight Committee reported in early 2015, “Workflow, technology, procurement, closeout, change orders, master plan, and legal procedures have all been analyzed and improved. The result has been projected program savings, expanded transparency, and increased efficiency.”
