Ojo Technology Gets Diamond IPI Award for Airport Project

We have some pretty exciting news. Our team won an award for our work at the Mineta San Jose International Airport. The award was presented by the International Partnering Institute at its 9th Annual Partnering Awards Ceremony. Each year, the IPI recognizes projects and individuals who best exemplify the principles of partnering in the construction industry.

We won the diamond award (the highest award presented) in the category Civil Construction Projects: Under $25 million for the work we did on the airport’s Security Perimeter Technology Project. We were part of a team that saved more than $400,000 by updating conduit and fiber route designs in the field and worked with engineers to reconcile the design. The team updated nearly 40 percent of the design in the field, responded to over 40 RFIs and negotiated roughly $1.5 million of change order work without a claim.

The IPI also recognized us for maintaining excellent collaboration in spite of the turnover in both contractor and key owner leadership positions. The award also cited the team for developing a new stakeholder process based on IPI best practices that delivered the project on time through California’s wettest winter in 50 years with zero claims and no OSHA recordables.
