Top 20 Construction Consulting Companies - 2014
The phrase “if only” is depriving construction CIOs of profits, often leaving them high and dry with impaired assets. Typical instances like “if only we’d known orienting the building a few degrees north would have drastically in-creased natural lighting,” or “if only we’d known about subcontractor’s underperforming assets before it went bust and blew our schedule,” vindicates this notion. Whether its incompetent work processes, scanty commercial interfaces, or breakdowns in supply chain, poor communication is the major hindrance to construction productivity. If CIOs and individual construction team personnel can’t access accurate, complete and timely information, then they can’t deliver the best result in the most productive manner.
In this complex landscape, mobile and cloud computing is the way ahead for construction CIOs. Delivering information to the workforce in the field via Smartphones, tablets, laptops, and the use of cloud is quickly replacing the manual, paper-based way of doing business. These technologies are helping CIOs make immense headways in simulating a heavy lift, rescheduling a task, issuing a new method statement or undertaking an annual service inspection.
The plethora of challenges and the abundance of solutions often make it difficult for construction CIOs to select the best. This is where construction consulting companies play the role of a propeller, freeing up the resources and helping CIOs to focus on their core functionalities.
