A New Continuum of Care

The health care industry’s shift from treating sickness to supporting preventive wellness is starting to take shape on the construction front—and the geographic scope of services is broadening as well. Recognizing this new continuum of care, medical providers are busy building or expanding outpatient clinics, freestanding primary care facilities, specialty cancer centers and rehabilitation hospitals. With those services spider-webbing into the community, main hospital campuses are undergoing renovations to meet standards for private rooms and adapt spaces to accommodate the remaining patients who need serious care.

IPD: A Commitment to Teamwork

When used properly, BIM facilitates the type of collaboration in programming, analysis, budgeting, design development, permitting, bidding, fabrication and construction that is at the core of IPD. The goal of IPD is to have all of the key participants working together from day one to create a single, shared point of responsibility for the project and to minimize or eliminate the unanticipated circumstances and disputes that can throw a job into disarray.

Achieve a Well-oiled Machine With Modern Materials Management

Construction projects are often compared to manufacturing assembly line operations—insomuch that they are nothing alike. The typical construction project has so many moving pieces being assembled in unique ways and in varied locations, making no two projects exactly the same.

Industry Game-Changers

Typically, disruption in the workplace is counterintuitive to productivity. But in terms of creating innovative ways to manage people, processes and technology, the concept of “disruption” isn’t such a bad thing for the construction industry. Change is stirring whether contractors are ready for it or not, and firms that have adopted new ways of managing scheduling and workflows are seeing stellar results—earning the accolades of repeat projects for key clients, as well as happy project partners.

PMIS: Revolutionizing Owner-Contractor Relationships

Facility owners have historically been left out of the construction project management technology game, as most platforms and tools focused on innovations for contractors, architects and engineers. That trend is changing with the rise and expansion of project management information systems (PMIS) designed specifically for owners. Even so, PMIS usage among owners and contractors has room to improve to facilitate better project execution.

New P3 Resources Available

Public agencies developing infrastructure projects now have access to a guide that emphasizes factors local policymakers should consider before entering into a public-private partnership (P3). Additionally, a new study is available that focuses on comprehensive development agreements, which often are associated with toll road P3s.

Forecasting IT Trends in Construction

With the promise of IoT, mobile, cloud and other emerging technologies, contracting companies cannot slow their pursuit of technology. In fact, construction companies are going to be faced with more options, greater demand, increased complexity and higher costs. 

Design-Build Gains Traction in Four States

Missouri, Alabama, Nebraska and New York advance design-build legislation.

Exceeding Expectations

In any industry or company, the poor actions of a few can overshadow the good work of the majority. To combat this in the construction industry requires consistency, dedication and a commitment to getting the job done right the first time. Just take it from McGann Construction and Trunnell Electric, two contractors that have built a reputation for consistently producing high-quality work. 

Partnering With Distributors for Efficiency

Contractors don’t need to look far to find organizations that specialize in moving materials. Distributors and suppliers, and even manufacturers, can be considered part of the food chain.
