For centuries, the construction has been a hugely fragmented industry, with lots of different companies coming together for a particular building or TI and then moving on to different projects.
Typically, a client will commission an architectural team or design team, then engineers will become involved. Building services consultants and structural engineers get the call next,
before a general contractor finally arrives to undertake the actual work itself. And that contractor won’t directly employ many of the people working on site. He will subcontract out various parts of the work.
Given the availability of current generation cloud based technology:
Why wouldn’t you enable everyone on a project to effectively share documents and data?
Why wouldn’t you want to encourage subcontractors and suppliers to bid more aggressively by establishing funding transparency from the very beginning of a project?
Why wouldn’t you want a common location for your warranty and close out project documentation?
Why wouldn’t you want to enable your project stakeholders to fairly rate each other’s performance at the end of a project to create an honest project scorecard?
We’d really like to hear your feedback!
