Cutting Costs on Flooring Could Cost You Big!

Cutting Costs on Flooring Could Cost You Big!

Tom Rychlewski
Owners who experience project failures and budget overruns are often forced to cut or modify scope to salvage their budgets. According to KPMG International’s 2015 Global Construction Project Owner’s Survey, “Climbing the curve,” 53 percent of owners suffered one or more underperforming projects in the previous year, and only 31 percent of all respondents’ projects came within 10 percent of the budget in the past three years.
Technology: Making it Work in the Field

Technology: Making it Work in the Field

While we all have access to today’s great technology, it is truly only worth what we make of it. Without proper implementation, each device is only a different sized paperweight.  CRB utilizes iPhones, iPads, numerous applications and VDC kiosks in the field in order to drastically improve collaboration, installation and safety during the construction processes. This gives our construction engineers, superintendents and trade contractors the resources necessary to stay on-site.
A Practical Approach to BIM/VDC - Spatial Allocation

A Practical Approach to BIM/VDC - Spatial Allocation

Matt Edwards
Traditional 2D design workflow previously involved drawing detailed sections that forced us to physically look at spatial allocation. As processes have become more automated, design teams have begun to rely on each other for coordination. This has a tendency to remove the planning process at the beginning of the job, where spatial allocation was previously addressed.

BIM (Building Information Model) and VD+C (Virtual Design and Construction) have become industry buzzwords that have many different meanings depending upon who you ask.  This, I find, is mostly due to the perception and expectations of our clients. Some have had bad experiences in the past, which can lead to hesitations in fully adopting BIM on future projects.

Why select a construction management approach for your project instead of a traditional approach?  According to Russell Sheppard, CRB Builders’ Regional Leader for the Central Region, the key issue is, “Which ‘side of the table’ do you want your builder sitting on?”
Process Simulation and its Benefits

Process Simulation and its Benefits

Philip Lyman, PhD – Director of Process Simulation at CRB – discusses how a process model, at the right detail level and properly validated, can be an invaluable tool to compare alternatives and justify cost for manufacturing and manufacturing-related processes.
