Construction projects have many moving parts, and managing all those different elements is crucial for project success. One wrong piece of information can create a snowball effect and potentially lead to project teams building off the wrong set of plans resulting in schedule delays, cost overruns, and a loss in morale.
One way to ensure that teams are coordinated and working off the latest data set is connected construction. By connecting and integrating workflows and data, information flows seamlessly from one system to the next, ensuring collaboration across stakeholders. At its core, connected construction connects teams, processes, and information from start to finish across the project’s lifecycle.
To better understand how our customers define connected construction and the value of integrated workflows, we asked, “what does connected construction mean to you?” The following response is from Amy Kozlowski, Project Manager at Herrero Builders.
My name is Amy Kozlowski. I am a project manager for Herrero Builders.
Connected Construction means to me that everybody has their finger on the pulse. That we are all informed in real-time. That there is no disconnect between the accounting team and the project management team it means that everybody is connected.
One of the biggest challenges in managing data across the project lifecycle is when you don’t have a consolidated platform.
Where you don’t have to enter data multiple times where I can track an issue, I can track a change in the design and with the click of one button, it is shared across all platforms.
Companies need to look at adopting as much paperless technology as they can. When you have everybody on the same interface there aren’t any uncertainties over what is the latest iteration; there are no missteps.
