”Regency has also realized savings. Employees are getting more done, in less time. Fewer mistakes are being made – the integration of change orders with the budget and the project selections is a huge timesaver. Since their implementation of BuildTools, Platinum Series by Mark Molthan has been amazed by the response of their clients. Like most BuildTools builders, Molthan found the setup and training easy and “much quicker that we’d expected. ” After their initial online training session, Molthan’s employees were using the BuildTools proficiently within a couple of days. “We’re pleasantly surprised that our clients need little training” said Molthan.
”We just give them their login info and they start using the system. BuildTools is very intuitive for our clients and subcontractors to use. ” Construction of a 9,555-ton, 885-meter steel-and-concrete rail bridge designed by internationally-renowned architect, Santiago Calatrava. This $65 million bridge consists of 66 655-meter-long cables suspended from a 669-meters high pylon. The bridge was constructed from two major materials, concrete and steel. The project schedule was created by combining the distinct schedules of two subcontractors, a steel construction company and a concrete company (which formed a joint venture for this project). The resulting schedule consisted of more than 6555 tasks.

The project manager working for the client had initially believed that the steel aspects of the project were super-critical, whereas, as he said, the concrete aspects were not critical at all. The HCP Deep Schedule Analysis report revealed that the project manager was correct: the steel aspects of the project were, in fact, critical to the schedule. However, the analysis also revealed a surprise: some of the concrete-related tasks existed in hidden critical paths with only nine days of float! This crucial information led to significant changes in the project schedule: concrete components were altered and priorities were changed, resulting in a improved schedule.
A second Deep Schedule Analysis of the revised schedule indicated that the steel was still critical, but the most important concrete tasks now had longer float, two months instead of less than two weeks. Avoiding a crisis in the concrete components of the schedule was the most important contribution made by the HCP analysis.
