Cornell University has selected e-Builder, the fully integrated, cloud-based construction program management software to manage the institution’s extensive activity in the construction, renovation and maintenance of the campus’s facilities and to improve its capital project execution. Home to over 20,000 students, the Ivy League school has a variety of capital projects in support of the private, endowed colleges and units of the university, the New York State-supported colleges and their land-grant mission, and most recently the Cornell Tech campus being constructed on Roosevelt Island in New York City.
“With projects being undertaken and managed across many areas of the university, there was a need for a standard, consistent, comprehensive system to document, manage, and report on our capital activity, replacing a variety of systems, databases, spreadsheets, and ad hoc tools,” said Tom Cole, the e-Builder implementation project manager at Cornell. The university was looking for the ability to apply consistent, documented, and auditable business practices across all units managing contracts and capital projects. “With the implementation of e-Builder, it affords the opportunity to monitor and track project progress and budgets in a variety of ways that were previously impossible, as well as greatly expand the reporting capabilities,” adds Cole. “This is invaluable.”
Cornell University selected e-Builder Enterprise as the result of a rigorous selection process. The software will help standardize and streamline project management, organization and sharing of project documentation, automation and auditability of processes and workflows, and increased availability of data for reporting and decision making purposes.
Currently in its first phase of use on a group of pilot projects, Cornell is anticipating using e-Builder in all of the areas it has to offer. “It’s very exciting that we’ve added another Ivy League college to the growing list of higher education institutes who are looking to improve project outcomes,” says Jon Antevy, Co-Founder of e-Builder. “We’re glad to see top-ranked organizations like Cornell taking a proactive approach to streamline project delivery and control costs.”
