e-Builder, an industry leader in the development of capital program management software, will host construction professionals representing some of North America’s most active capital programs at its annual User & Technology Conference on October 19-21. This year’s conference, to be held at the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort, has drawn record numbers from the healthcare, higher education, government, K-12 and manufacturing verticals. As part of the main conference tracks, speakers from this group will share their experiences and expertise on ways to improve capital project delivery.
Gwen Glattes, Director, Facilities & Real Estate Services/Construction Audit, commented, “I see this year’s conference as an opportunity to interact with other facility owners who are using e-Builder. This will no doubt highlight best practices related to project cost controls, reinforce our implementation approach, and ultimately inspire us to maximize the utilization of our data contained in e-Builder."
The speakers include representatives from UT Southwestern Medical Center, The Metropolitan Council, Scripps Health, The University of California San Diego, Inova Health and Columbia College Chicago. These organizations are currently managing a wide range of projects that include new medical, educational and research facilities, as well as ongoing renovations of historic buildings. The topics being discussed reveal the strategies used by owners to maximize the benefits of capital program management software in relation to BIM, bid automation, capital planning, cost controls, construction mobile apps, and more.
Suzanne Osburn, Manager of Constructions Operations at Scripps Health, said, “I’m looking forward to this year’s conference as an opportunity to learn new ways to use e-Builder to process and distribute key project information more efficiently”.
Jonathan Antevy, e-Builder CEO, commented, “We are in the midst of a revolution of sorts, where the construction industry is embracing technological advances that show promise in helping deliver facilities faster, at a lower cost, for the benefit of everyone. From new integration options between iPad apps and process automation capabilities, to owner-driven BIM processes, our clients are pushing us, along with the boundaries of what these technologies can do.”
