This is the world’s forum for advancement of AWP and associated project performance best practices

Following the very successful Advanced Work Packaging (AWP) Conference in Houston in October 2018, the AWP Conference arrives in London in 2019. This is the first-ever global edition of the conference since it’s inception in 2009 in Calgary, Canada.

This conference will gather the most innovative experts and thought leaders from across the built environment to discuss how productivity and project performance are being transformed around the world through the use of AWP and complementary methods, practices and current movements such as BIM, Digitisation and Lean Construction. 

Driven by the owner and EPC community, AWP is rapidly redefining the project landscape

AWP is an integrated project delivery system that has been well-established as an official project performance best practice by the Construction Industry Institute (CII) in Austin, TX (USA) and by the Construction Owners Association of Alberta (COAA) in Edmonton, AB (Canada). It is currently being used on projects at locations around the world and in multiple industry sectors. AWP is helping project owners (and the contractors and vendors they work with) find success in a challenging marketplace; as a result, priorities are shifting and there is a growing demand for competency in interpreting and using AWP.

AWP is focused on increased quality, better predictability and lower total installed cost. It has revolutionised the way capital and facilities projects across major industry sectors (oil & gas, chemicals, energy and infrastructure) are planned and delivered. AWP can benefit a wide variety of project types, sizes and levels of complexity in both industrial and commercial construction. Research has established that AWP works on projects of all sizes.

While you are sure to gain a lot of valuable information and insight from this event, some of the key learnings from AWP Conference panels will be:

  • What is Advanced Work Packaging and what are the benefits?

  • Why is AWP being adopted globally as the way to plan and execute projects?

  • How can AWP be scaled and implemented on smaller projects?

  • How does AWP align with the BIM and digitisation movements?

  • What are AWP data standards and how do you measure AWP on projects?

  • How can AWP support better project procurement and materials management?

  • What are major owners experiencing as a result of applying AWP on real projects?

The Breakout Sessions

The AWP Conference will include four themed breakout tracks that will feature a combination of sponsor-presenters and invited guest speakers representing the following key AWP stakeholder groups: the owners & builders, the technology providers, the implementation support experts and the researchers & developers (best practices track). Attendees will have the opportunity to take in their choice of up to 4 breakout sessions over two days (2 sessions per conference day); many attendee companies choose to send a team to the conference in order to take in a greater amount of available content. There will be 16 total breakout sessions at this year’s conference.


The Only AWP-Focused Conference

In 2009, the first-ever WorkFace Planning Conference was introduced to industry in Calgary Alberta Canada, to support the launch of the COAA WorkFace Planning Model. In 2013, Advanced Work Packaging was announced as an expansion of the WFP model, and would soon become an official CII Best Practice. In 2014, the conference became the AWP Conference and moved to Houston, Texas. The conference has grown each year, reflecting increasing interest in AWP. In response to worldwide adoption of AWP, we’re going global in 2019 with multiple events in North America and the United Kingdom.

This year, we are proud to introduce the AWP Summit to Edmonton, Alberta and the AWP Conferences in both Houston, Texas and London, England. We’ve hosted thousands of construction professionals at AWP conferences and workshops over the past decade. We hope to see you soon at one of our upcoming events.
