Who Should Lead 4D?
With the ever increasing advancement of technology, there come new opportunities, along with creation of new roles and responsibilities to use this new technology. When I started in construction, MEP coordination (how the systems would physically need to be installed in the overhead space of a building) was done using light tables and overlays. While this process was better than nothing, it had many issues. When computers began to have the capability to use 3D, this process proved to not only be more efficient and effective, but also created a new skill set for someone to possess in order to facilitate the 3D coordination process.

Are You Ready for BIM? (Free Whitepaper)
BIM (Building Information Modeling) is changing the way the construction sector works. Every major project relies on a complex network of owners, architects, engineers, construction managers, contractors and sub-contractors. Drawings, documents, emails, and contracts must be shared quickly among all stake holders. To ensure success and profitability, organised collaboration between all parties must occur in an integrated manner, ensuring the project meets cost, time and quality expectations.
In this whitepaper, Viewpoint explores the evolution of BIM and the best practices that...
The Power of Integration for Project Controls (Free Webinar)
The promise of project controls is better project performance. All too often, however, this benefit is mired by siloes of disconnected data and a reliance on manual processes that are inefficient and ultimately too slow to affect the intended positive changes to performance. In this webinar, we discuss the powerful, leading-edge integration technologies of EcoSys EPC (Enterprise Planning & Controls) and the efficiency, visibility, and flexibility that are unlocked once data has been integrated.

Road and rail projects usually require the movement of large quantities of earth in order to prepare the construction site area. This is subsequently one of the biggest cost driven groups of activities in these types of projects. Earthwork activities can be anywhere between 30%-80% of the total project budget. Once you consider the equipment and workforce needed to excavate, move, waste, compact and/or test soil, crush rocks, costs add up quickly. For this reason contractors and engineers rely on mass...
