Annual Owner's Forum:  How Owners Deliver Billion Dollar Infrastructure Programs

Owners across the Pacific Northwest are managing and delivering massive infrastructure programs. Join us for a moderated panel discussion with Owners from WSDOT, Sound Transit, and the California Department of General Services as they share their knowledge and experiences from managing billion dollar construction programs across the west coast.

Tom Peterson, former Chief Engineer for the Port of Portland, will moderate a panel discussion featuring the following professionals:


  • Julie Meredith, WSDOT, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Mega Programs 
  • Matt Preedy, Sound Transit, Director of Construction Management
  • Richard Standiford, California Department of General Services, Project Director


Large programs are often challenged with unclear objectives, insufficient resources, unrealistic budgets and over-ambitious schedules. Effective leadership is essential for achieving project success. Panelists will discuss best practices for major infrastructure programs that ensure on-time, on-budget, high-quality delivery — and happy stakeholders.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • Management of Multiple Mega Projects Simultaneously
  • Delivery Methods and Funding Strategies
  • Workforce Capacity 
  • Staff Augmentation Strategies 
  • Maintaining and Managing Diversity 
  • Use of Technology or Innovative Strategies in Management
  • Coordination between Multiple Jurisdictions
