technology

The construction scenario in 2022 is plagued by labor shortages, project delays, cost overages, and supply chain issues.

Coming out of the pandemic has pushed construction teams and firms towards digital tech to improve efficiency, enhance profits, raise onsite quality, and better safety. As the construction industry navigates through these challenges, best-in-class digital construction management platforms continue to close the gap between various teams – the back office and the field. True collaboration across the entire project lifecycle with augmented teamwork has to led high-impact outcomes and the realization of business needs.

The following information is incorporated and described in the report to demonstrate the capabilities of iFieldSmart tools and learn how various users have leveraged the platform to extract the best results. A collaborative project delivery approach from preconstruction to construction, and handover uncovers greater effectiveness and efficiency for users and augmented continuity and profitability.

Lastly, we expect the following information will support construction firms to navigate through rough waters and build a stronger and better future.

Summary

The present and future of

construction are people and

digital construction management

software.

Digital construction management platforms are an important piece of the puzzle, yet it requires people to complete the loop. Fragmented data and teams require a unified construction platform with effective, yet simple tools and dashboards from preconstruction to handover.

A collaborative ecosystem can enable construction firms to garner greater ROI through higher data accuracy and reliability. Significant improvements in information transparency, effectiveness, and productivity driven by software deliver tangible benefits.

To enable back office and field teams to garner insights, Architects, General Contractors, Sub-Contractors, and Owners need to incorporate processes, workflows, and technology with human intervention.

Section 1

Advanced processes and workflows drive high-impact outcomes

“How can utilizing smarter technologies lead to more informed and effective results across the entire project lifecycle? ” The approach to solving modern-day AEC challenges isn’t driven by the power of one, but by three – people, processes, and innovation.

Chetan Mogal

CEO, BIM Engineering U.S., L.L.C.

Creating high-impact outcomes

with greater data connectivity

Paper-based processes leave behind a large carbon footprint with fragmented project data through disconnected construction management platforms. In the absence of a single source of truth and information inadequacies, projects can face costly delays, unwanted rework, productivity issues, and budget overages.

Around 30% of the construction work constitutes rework – external and internal. Missing or outdated field documents, inexperienced personnel, procurement issues, inaccurate supervision, scheduling challenges, and absent coordination and collaboration, all lead to negative building outcomes. Based on a report by Dodge Data and Analytics, 9 out of 10 contractors in the US report challenges steering toward labor shortage.  

Improvements in labor productivity have been cited as one of the top reasons for construction firms to use advanced construction management tech. Connected construction management software lowers material waste and streams data on a single platform for multiple stakeholders to access. Simple and easy-to-use tools and dashboards and third-party integration augment coordination and collaboration to better construction and clock in less time with greater outcomes.

Administrative challenges can burden projects with unnecessary activities. Having a solid construction management tool to manage administrative activities promotes higher building quality, improved client satisfaction, and field safety.

90% of Project Owners believe iFieldSmart Technologies has supported process and workflow customization across the entire project.

85% of Project Owners have stated that iFieldSmart Technologies has assisted Owner’s leverage project data across the entire project lifecycle.

“Streaming every piece of project data into the construction management platform including updated Drawings, AR/VR files, RFIs, Submittals, Task Management, Scheduling, and more in real-time increases visualization, accuracy, and reliability across the entire project.”   

Over 30 hours conserved per day

Section 2

collaboration through digital software minimizes the project risks

Utilizing the iFieldSmart Technologies platform early in the project phase gets people connected on a single unified platform. The ability to access all project data which is accurate, updated, complete, and reliable mitigates paperwork, reduces field inspection time, promotes project oversight, and drives higher task completion.

Keep your project tracks free of field

risks with accurate scheduling and task

management

Construction projects can be highly fragmented with data all over the place. Lack of trade coordination drives higher rework, cost overflow, and project delays. The presence of seamless workflows enriched by best-in-class construction management platforms can help stakeholders drive value from preconstruction to closeout – on-time project completion within planned costs. Synchronizing every workflow and agenda in the supply chain is a puzzle piece that needs to be solved early in the project phase.

People and data silos are a challenge for demanding and fast-track projects. The absence of collaboration across the value chain elevates field risks. Rework through outdated data from drawings, unresolved RFIs, greater numbers of change orders, labor shortage, and overburdened staff are a result of non-integrated platforms.

Jobsite data recorded through AR/VR files, 360 visualizations, photo documentation, and other information supports improved decision-making. Preemptive planning with construction management software can reduce delays, rework, and onsite hazards.

Section 3

identify and secure project costs for higher profits and greater consistency

Manually managing accounts, work invoices, task records, and other project data can be extremely time-consuming and inaccurate. Construction and production managers need to stay on budget and time and continue to communicate effectively and efficiently in the field to lower project costs through an easy and powerful project management package.

Keep your budgets focused

with preemptive cost management

Traditional or manual cost management processes and tools produce challenges that include productivity issues, lack of visibility, accountability issues, and inaccurate reporting. Disconnected processes and tools can take projects over budget and impact project delivery.  

Projects are frequently delivered late. According to McKinsey and Co., large projects take 20% more time to finish and go 80% over budget. General contractors and sub-contractors fail to achieve high-budget performance due to a lack of data and fragmented processes. Tracking project costs for each construction component or deliverable through manual systems produces a negative impact on the overall project cost.

Connected construction management platforms like iFieldSmart Technologies can support stakeholders and projects to evaluate schedules and budgets through real-time data streaming during actual construction. Loopholes in the operations and accounts software or processes can spiral projects into a negative cash flow.

With every piece of cost data streamed in real-time, construction management tools like iFieldSmart Technologies can drive improved collaboration amongst stakeholders, enhance decision-making, mitigate risks, and send the right information set to the right people. Being conscious or cognizant of project costs at an early stage can facilitate cash flow positive outcomes.
