InEight launches a project controls solution to manage Alternative Delivery projects after pilot shows 10% reduction in design costs.
Scottsdale, Ariz. – InEight Inc., a global leader in capital project and program management software, has announced the launch of InEight Design, which delivers an integrated project controls process to successfully manage design scopes, and provide traceability in design quantities, for alternative delivery projects. Synchronizing design and construction data delivers the until now missing link in stakeholder collaboration and shared visibility envisioned by alternative delivery methods.
The technology is launching after a successful pilot where it has been deployed on more than $14B of design-build and other alternative delivery projects, reducing design quantity growth risk by up to 20% and reducing engineering costs by 10%.
By improving visibility into design progress and aligning construction work with the latest design quantities; customers can now eliminate the surprises that impact budgets and schedules on alternative delivery projects.
Brad Barth, Chief Product Officer at InEight, said: “Global demand for construction continues to rise, and alternative delivery contracting models are becoming the norm for large complex projects. Managing and controlling the design scope on these projects is critical to overall success, yet until now design firms have been left to use disconnected spreadsheets to help manage their work. This powerful design management solution fills that void, providing a project controls solution for design work that provides visibility, collaboration, and accountability across the multiple stakeholders involved in these projects.”
The software helps engineering and design teams control their scopes, manage their resources, predict completion dates, track progress, and manage earned values as the design work proceeds through 30-60-90-IFC milestones. The result is better coordination, accountability, and visibility across design and construction teams, eliminating surprises on alternative delivery projects.
