GTeam Webinar: Coordination Through Dynamic Information Exchange with Pike Construction

Description

The coordination phase of any project is the Achilles heel of the construction schedule. The impact that good coordination will have on project outcomes is often underestimated. Often, the duration to do good coordination is limited and inevitably a number of conflicts are let go. Field coordination is common practice and the cost of field changes are impossible to fully monitor. A linear hand off, then recirculating of a file for conflict resolution is simply too slow for many projects to efficiently find and address all the possible issues. What if, we were able to reduce the coordination time and predict successful and accurate installation? The ability to streamline the coordination process and allow all the trades to evolve their systems in parallel cuts down on the time it takes to push and pull files between participants, while providing them the insight for what the other trades are producing. Each team member is productive and no one is stuck waiting for another trade to finish their work. This is possible with comprehensive buy in and planning, as well as with the help of some new tools. This webinar will highlight this method, process changes required and benefits realized, and cite one successful execution.
