Changes are inevitable in today’s complex building environment, but those changes can have an impact on a project’s time, cost, and quality. Building Information Modelling (BIM) can help significantly reduce the impact of change by tracking and analysing design changes. Collaborative BIM tools enable the whole project team to work together with ease and ensure design changes are identified and resolved during the design phase rather than on-site.
When issues are inevitably found, a digital construction platform like 3D Repo’s ensures timely resolution among collaborators. Users can easily drop pins to identify issues and assign them to various parties on the project – issues are also highlighted with a colour specific to the party that the issue has been assigned to.
Gone are the days of lost emails and written notes, instead, a 100% cloud-based issue tracker manages issues in one central place for all stakeholders to see, allowing for full transparency and accountability. What’s more, 3D Repo’s new Kanban (Trello style) issue board makes viewing and managing issues even easier with a quick glance across the board for an update on any new issues and anything outstanding.
