  • Using technology to address new trends in Construction Management
  • “ I go to where the puck is going, not where it’s been” -Wayne Gretzky
  • Construction trends
    • LEED
    • 3D Modeling -> 4D ->5D
    • Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)
    • Lean Construction
    • Less work, lower margins
    • Higher expectations
    • Failure not an option
  • Any others?
    • Design shifting to subs?
    • More planning
    • Better quality logistics plans
    • More sophisticated marketing presentations
    • More educated and talented workforce
  • Focus points
    • Collaborate
    • Reduce waste
    • Educate

    • Eliminate paper
  • LEED
    • Needs to be tracked and monitored
    • All products need to be checked
    • Go paperless or paper - less
  • BIM
    • Architecture, engineering and construction journal AECbytes cites BIM's potential as a "disruptive technology" that could drastically change how the build industry operates.
  • "As recognition of the benefits of BIM grows, the ability of design professionals, contractors, fabricators and suppliers to work effectively in this new environment will increasingly become a competitive differentiator in winning work," McGraw-Hill Construction says.
  • IPD IPD is a project deliver approach that integrates people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that collaboratively harness the talents and insights of all participants to reduce waste and optimize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction. -AIA
  • Now let’s look at some trends in technology
    • Web 2.0/Cloud based computing/SaaS
    • Better modeling software
    • Web conferencing
    • PDF Markup tools
    • Smart phones, Blackberrys
    • Tablets, iPads
    • Multi and large monitors
  • More technology…
    • Project Management Web sites
    • Wikis, microsites, team sites
