The project achieved a Gold pre-certification for sustainability from the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council).

Challenges

  • High public visibility and strict compliance requirements.
  • Aggressive project schedule and limited budget.
  • Large stakeholder group of property councils, government agencies, designers, contractors, and hospital operations staff.
  • Requirement for high standard of environmental sustainability.

Solutions

  • All project processes, data, communications, and approvals were managed on a single platform.
  • Consolidation of all functions significantly reduced a massive administrative burden. 
  • Version control ensured that the project team had access to the latest information and avoided working from outdated documents. 
  • Project-wide visibility and control helped prevent schedule delays and cost overruns.

Result

  • Faster processing of invoices as a result of scanning and distribution. 
  • Elimination of printing of email attachments, manual filing and manual distribution of project information.
  • Accelerated workflows from broad visibility of the status of all project activities. 
  • Complete documentation for operation and risk management throughout the useful life of the asset.
