Solutions for the Revolutionary AEC Team
As a member of the project team, we identify with challenges all AEC teams now face since they are working dispersed. Solutions must be put in place to provide collaboration and success for projects, as well as moving into the future with our new norm. This is a forced revolution.
Can you identify the biggest challenge you are currently facing?
Result of Challenge: The lost owners project requirements
Questions to Ask:
- Owner, do you know where your architect is?
- Architect/Engineer, do you know where your consultants are?
- Design-Builder, do you know where your team is?
The Solution: Collaborate via Evolving Specifications
Project Team Members Working Remote
Result of Challenge: Information continuum delayed or broken
Questions to Ask:
- Who made the decision?
- What was the decision that was made?
- When did they make the decision?
- Why did they make that decision?
Solution: Continue to make decisions via Evolving Specifications
Printing an Entire Spec Book
Result of Challenge: A printed manual in one location and team members in other locations (or a lost of wasted paper)
The practicality of printing the written construction document set with the challenges of a remote and dispersed team simply doesn't exist.
The Solution: Keep documents online using Evolving Specifications
Delayed Spec Updates
Result of Challenge: Inconsistent communication and schedule delays
Are you aware when an update or change is made to specifications? Communication is a constant challenge of teams, however there are many platforms and methods that strive to overcome the information-exchange struggles. The true challenge in question is the transparency of team members through communication.
The Solution: Transparency, instantaneous knowledge of specification changes, and schedule accuracy with Evolving Specifications
Severely Restricted Gatherings
Result of Challenge: Uncoordinated documents
Restricted meetings, disjointed communication, lost information - this the new norm that project teams must adapt to. Will coordination integrity remain intact while we adapt to semi-permanent social distancing?
The Solution: Well-coordinated documents via Evolving Specifications
Novel Building Programs
Result of Challenge: New standards
Revolutions come with the need for new and unique resolutions.
- Can firms continue to apply their menu of materials to projects like they have before?
- How will lessons learned be captured?
- How will information be gathered and documented?
The Solution: Build and maintain guides via Evolving Specifications
Capital Improvement Plan Assessment
Result of Challenge: Access to project cost, schedule, and risk analysis
Capital planning and project team members must be able to inventory assets and package requirements needed to provide investors, bonders and risk holders the necessary contents and details, but how can this process happen with dispersed teams?
The Solution: Uniformat to put capital renewal or improvement in place
Result of Challenge: Knowledge level of facility maintenance costs
Assessment of facility assets, system and assembly inventory, maintenance and organization of this documentation is critical to manage, but how can this process happen with dispersed teams?
The Solution: Uniformat to put Management in place
