Construction projects of all colors, shapes, and sizes have one thing in common – they are temporary. However, the assets they create are permanent, or at the least they are long term investments. When these assets are acquired, they come with information that the owner will need, not just for the construction process but for the useful life of the asset. This is especially true in complex and equipment rich environments like healthcare facilities, schools and universities, manufacturing, data centers, etc.
To make the best use of their assets and the dollars budgeted for them, owners deploy technology to assist in planning, allocating, maintaining, and operating them. But these tools require the information about them that we collected along the way. Traditionally, this has required a “project after the project” to once again compile this information and load it into the appropriate tools.
Using an Asset Centric Project Management toolset to write smart contracts, build smarter models, and collect useful information in a manner that owners can use immediately at handover will eliminate this extra effort once and for all, and improve forever the value we designers and builders provide to construction owners.
By attending this webinar, participants will learn:
- The estimated costs of asset data handoff and how to avoid them.
- What data an owner really needs collected during pre-occupancy phases to better facilitate ongoing operations.
- How to create an Asset Specification for use during design and construction.
- Tips for better data handover when projects are completed.
