Reduce Liabilities on Project Constraints with Visual Scheduling or 4D BIM
Building your project ideas to life are not without hard and smart work, as attested by AEC industry professionals ranging from architects, engineers, project managers, construction managers, contractors, fabricators, facilities managers, vendors and suppliers. If you are a first-time client or an experienced building owner undergoing new construction or renovation, know that there's a trifecta at work in delivering a successful building construction project.
Below are the three critical project constraints which make up the Project Management Triangle:
Any component you move on the slider effectively moves the other two constraints. Our engineers clue you in on these three principles we keep in application: fast and good is not cheap, cheap and good is not fast, and lastly, fast and cheap is not good. On a side note, however, our engineers negate the first item as you can also achieve fast and quality results with lesser costs through our value-engineering services.
For your better understanding, let's apply this in light of how project constraints occur in building and construction sector. In an agile construction where all elements are geared up for accelerated workflow, any such time that the contractor doesn't meet your specified handover dates for the construction phasing usually translates to higher purchase orders, rushed timelines and compromised quality and safety. Oppositely, if the contractor is not in question and the client implements unnecessary hold orders due to negative cash flow, this can possibly lead to delayed timelines and even worse, liquidated damages on the contractor's end.
All these undesirable scenarios lead us to develop a two-way solution which will cater to both technical and legal perspectives. At New York Engineers, we utilize 4D BIM and visual scheduling to pull the cost and quality constraints out of the extremes—effectively reducing liabilities on all aspects. Our aim is to make visual scheduling a priority in your project, so you do not have to go to such extent where mediation and arbitrary disputes happen between parties, as this could be very costly for your business' bottomline despite legal contracts designed to protect every stakeholder.
