Raleigh, NC, United States, 2012/05/10 - New proprietary online tool combines expertise of Buric personnel with information sharing and project management functions - Buric.com.
Buric has launched a web-based, real-time dashboard that allows its experts to share proprietary intelligence and analyses – along with databases, documents and other project control information – with multi-disciplinary construction teams.
More than just a document management system, Buric’s proprietary dashboard allows clients to easily understand the status, issues, trends and next steps of any construction project. The dashboard is being offered as part of the firm’s signature Buric Global service.
“There are any number of document management software systems on the market today, but all of them essentially serve as digital filing cabinets. They lack meaningful perspective,” said Bill Zollinger, president and CEO of Buric. “Buric Global’s dashboard houses the databases and documents needed to successfully complete construction projects. But it delivers the added benefit of intelligence and analyses from our seasoned professionals. With document management software, the user gets, ‘Here is your information.’ With Buric Global’s dashboard, the user gets, ‘Here is your information – plus here’s what’s working, what’s not and what should happen next.’ ”
Buric Global builds on foundations established through integrated project delivery (IPD) and four-dimensional building information modeling (BIM) methods. IPD and BIM are, respectively, management and data systems increasingly employed by the construction industry.
But Buric Global advances basic IPD plus BIM capabilities with added features, such as:
• Allowing the owner to create and control contracts, determine productivity goals, and establish project risks,
• Creating multi-disciplinary, integrated teams that work in the owner’s best interests,
• Leading the construction team in identifying and addressing critical issues and trends,
• Exchanging information seamlessly and transparently,
• Assigning clear responsibilities and accountabilities to all members of the construction team, and
• Evaluating actual vs. as-planned in-field performance through on-site data collection and analyses.
Tested in a real-world laboratory on $1.4 billion worth of construction projects, Buric Global helped deliver new facilities on time, on budget and with no claims or litigation.
Since 1968, Buric has served as a premier consultant to the worldwide construction industry. The firm’s work allows clients to successfully complete construction projects while minimizing risks and costs.
In addition to Buric Global (buric.com), the firm provides services such as critical path method (CPM) scheduling; 4D BIM; construction project management; construction claims resolution; demonstrative graphics and exhibits; expert witness capability; and surety contract management.
