Still Waters Run Deep: Tappan Zee Bridge Project

Please note the new location for this meeting (Shaker Ridge Country Club)

Presentation Overview:

Daunting to say the least, the Tappan Zee Bridge replacement project presented planners and engineers with unprecedented challenges and risks. Dan D'Angelo, certified Risk Management Professional will present a case study in how he navigated unchartered waters to raise the bridge while lowering risk. Mr. D'Angelo will provide a birds-eye view into how risk was managed from four different perspectives; design-builder, owner, consultant and oversight.

Four key take-aways will provide the bridge to understanding how aging yet vital infrastructure was replaced with a modern roadway over a massive, legendary waterway in the lower Hudson valley.

#1 Differentiating Procurement vs. Execution

#2 Recognizing different parties have different goals

#3 Alignment: challenging, but key to success

#4 Risk Management is constant - stuff happens
