Project workflow consulting looks at how your projects are delivered. From the first opportunity you have to bid on a project, through to your final billing and project closeout. We analyze what information you receive, what information you create, and what information you deliver at each stage of your project lifecycle to each of the project participants and stakeholders. We help you look for opportunities to become more efficient in your workflow by taking full advantage of the technical tools you have available and help you create a roadmap of product implementation and adoption to streamline your overall project delivery.
Product workflow consulting maps your project delivery workflow to the specific products used at each phase of your project delivery. We help you develop standards and best practices to efficiently move the digital data you receive and create between the various products used. We look to eliminate current data inefficiencies allowing you to reuse data and add value to the information created in each product instead of recreating information as data moves from one product to the next.
Projects are seldom created in a vacuum and collaboration workflow consulting looks at how your organization shares project information internally between departments and offices as well as outside consultants and project stakeholders. We look for ways to streamline your collaboration processes helping you share and access information more efficiently both internally and in the field.
Did you know that U.S. CAD maintains a highly trained BIM production staff to help you meet your most demanding project standards and timelines? Think of our ‘guns for hire’ as a virtual extension to your BIM staff.
Want to sub out document creation to focus on landing new work? We can help you. Need some templates or families developed, but can’t take staff off of projects to develop them? We do that. Have a sub-contractor who’s not yet on BIM, but need a model for clash detection? We can create it. Need as-built BIM models of your building or campus for facilities management, but just don’t have the time? Let our experts do it. The client just moved the project deadline and you need help fast? We’re here for you.
Whenever short term or long term project help is needed, make our experts a part of your team.
