Construction data is a hot topic in the industry right now. We spend hours every day putting information into various project management applications. Whether it is adding an RFI to a project drawing or completing a safety checklist on a mobile device, data is being captured every minute.
Now we know all of this data is important, we just don’t always know what to do with this massive amount of information to really start reaping the benefits.
PARIC Corporation, a full service construction firm based out of St. Louis Missouri, sees the value of leveraging their data by implementing some of the BIM 360 prediction and analytics capabilities including Construction IQ.
“We’re starting to look at all of the data being collected through BIM 360 and figure out how we can get actionable insights,” said Andy Leek, VP of Technology and Innovation at PARIC. “Through the Construction IQ dashboards we can now see where the contractor risk is, and start to glean some insights out of it.”
Initially PARIC used the Construction IQ dashboards as a gut check. For example, Leek notes that teams may know on a high level that a Subcontractor on a project might have challenges that need their support to resolve. However, by using the risk dashboards powered by Construction IQ, PARIC is now able to get actual visibility into those specific issues driving higher risk scores and also see any other subs with high risk scores that need attention.
