Foundations Episode #4 – Closing In On Closeout
Project closeout is a topic that can strike fear in even the most season construction and project managers. Project closeout is one of those tasks that can require inordinate amounts of time and resources to complete and deliver. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In this episode, Foundations is joined by BuildingPoint Florida’s Dan Bentil. With more than two decades of construction management experience, Dan discusses both the all-too-common scenarios surrounding tough and protracted project closeouts as well as the more preferable streamlined closeouts that fit within the schedule and budget.
Having great data is fantastic. But only if you can act upon that data. Insightful and customized reporting is a key component to making the most of your data-driven decision making. In this week’s podcast, the Foundations team is joined by Steve Montgomery of BuildingPoint Northeast. Steve has spent over 20 years in project controls arena, and has successfully shepherded hundreds of clients through a successful project controls software implementation, leveraging custom reports as a huge component of the success strategy. Steve highlights both some of the benefits of customized reporting, as well as some basic criteria to make sure that you’re leveraging your data to it’s fullest potential.
In this week’s episode Foundations discusses the topic of implementation red flags. When implementing new technology or processes, it goes without saying that a substantial amount of due diligence and research is required to arrive at the correct decision. But what happens after the decision has been made? In truth, that’s when things can go really bad, really fast. This week, the Foundations team is joined by Kriszta Dolanyi of Trimble, who has been managing and navigating intricate implementations for the past 10 years. Kriszta highlights some key concepts of a successful implementation, as well as some “red flags” that will help identify potential issues before they completely derail the integration.
Introducing Foundations – An On-Going DBO Conversation
Today, we’re thrilled to announce and release the first episode of Foundations, a podcast focused solely on emerging trends and ideas within the Design-Build-Operate marketspace. This bi-weekly show will cover any variety of topics, and is intended to be a conversation, rather than a sales pitch or infomercial for any particular product or service. As a growing worldwide network of construction technology experts, BuildingPoint has a unique ability to cover many of these emerging concepts with a perspective and angle that is simply unavailable anywhere else in the industry.
Our plan is to release 18 episodes a year, on a roughly bi-weekly basis. In each show, we’ll cover a single topic, and we’ll be joined by a variety of industry experts, thought leaders, and real-world users, to help bring additional viewpoints to the conversation. Subscribing to the podcasts couldn’t be easier. We’ll be posting each episode to all of the major podcast outlets including iTunes, SoundCloud, and Google Play.
In our first episode, we’re simply setting the table for Foundations, talking about what it is, and what is not, and really just explaining what you can expect in the coming months.
As the leader in Design-Build-Operate solutions, BuildingPoint is thrilled to serve contractors, designers, and owners within this rapidly changing segment. With Foundations, we encourage you to join in the conversation, as we continue to push the industry forward together. Visit buildingpointflorida.con/foundations and subscribe today!
