FOCUSES ON OWNER’S REQUIREMENTS
The Conspectus approach creates an information flow that supports optimized design choices, translates design solutions into reliable construction documents, and provides the data and insight necessary for owners to optimize the operations and maintenance of their facilities.
SUPPORTS FULLY INFORMED DECISION MAKING
Owners and architects can start making data-driven decisions earlier in the project and at a higher level, which helps keep the design solution aligned with owner requirements. With access and input to centralized, accurate information at every stage of the project, all team members can understand the “what and why” of design solutions and align their efforts with the desired outcome.
REDUCES INCONSISTENCIES, DISCREPANCIES, REDUNDANCIES, AND INEFFICIENCY
The Conspectus approach gathers comprehensive data from the earliest phases of a project ensuring that no data is lost and that all relevant information and decisions are documented. This helps to reduce both the number and frequency of change orders and to avoid disruptions caused by value engineering efforts to cut costs, regardless of scope or quality implications. It also provides complete documentation for dispute resolution.
MITIGATES FINANCIAL RISK
Because financial risk is always top of mind, Conspectus carefully defines the required systems and assemblies in sufficient detail to enable early cost analysis of the viable options. This promotes fully informed design decision making taking into account the three most critical dimensions: performance, cost, and quality.
EMBODIES TRANSPARENCY AND PROMOTES COLLABORATION
The Conspectus approach keeps the extended project team on the same page by providing access to a common, complete, and current data set. This enables team members to make fact-based decisions rather than rely on assumptions and best guesses. It also provides a mechanism for all parties to contribute relevant knowledge, expertise, and experience at the most appropriate time in the project continuum.
