Northwestern Memorial Hospital is a great success story for how data can flow from design to the field and ultimately to the project owner at turnover.
Carol Stream, Ill (PRWEB) June 23, 2015
Many construction companies today strive to use technology to simplify the modeling process and organize data. One team leveraged technology to do even more and that was to improve the bottomline—and will speak about its successes.
Ken Kaiser, manager, facilities planning and construction, Northwestern Medicine and his team will present at Technology Day on August 27 at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Schaumburg to discuss the details of a recent project done at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Kaiser will explain how effectively using technology to record and transfer data improved the bottomline for his team’s project.
“Today’s VDC (virtual design and construction) technologies have greatly enhanced the ability for distributed, diversified multidisciplinary teams of designer, constructor, and owner/user to work cohesively,” says Kaiser. “Just as three dimensional, data based, design tools have improved accuracy, helped clarify user expectations and reduced construction questions and errors, portable platform and device independent systems can take project detail and visualization from the designer’s desk to clash detection in the BIM room to the tradesman in the field and all the way to the maintenance engineer’s fingertips.”
Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech, says, “Northwestern Memorial Hospital is a great success story for how data can flow from design to the field and ultimately to the project owner at turnover. As we always say, it is all about the data, and now is the time for construction companies to learn how to best leverage it.”
Kaiser will explain how he and his team worked together during this year’s Technology Day. Register to hear this and more about how to leverage similar software in your construction business.
