Bringing construction collaboration to the table

11/28/2016 at 11:34 am

Are contractors, in general, embracing collaboration? One could say “yes” and “no.” The construction industry, as a whole, doesn’t have to be sold on the benefits of working more closely together. In fact, I see many contractors promoting how they’re own collaborative efforts make it possible for them to deliver a higher-quality project in less…

Data: the critical link in project life cycle collaboration

One definition of collaboration describes it as “the action of working with someone to produce or create something.” That definition certainly applies to the construction industry, where many different companies and people are required to complete a project.

How satisfied are you with the performance of the construction projects you manage? Are you meeting or beating planned completion dates? Do your costs consistently stay within budget limits?

Time to topple the walls separating your project team

11/11/2015 at 3:14 pm

Traditionally, construction has been a fragmented process. Even today, despite BIM and other advancements in collaborative tools, project team members still primarily work in silos, making it difficult to reach common project goals. Many contractors admit that things have to change. So do project owners. In fact, 82% of project owners expect greater owner/contractor collaboration…
