On the Bleeding Edge

Technology

Success powered by technology.

Technology is taking a tablet to the jobsite, holding it up to an empty space and seeing the future. It's understanding how the parts and pieces will come together before they arrive on the jobsite. And it's connecting the field and the office in ways never done before. Innovation isn't just thinking differently, it's thinking ahead.

At McCownGordon, we use advanced digital tools to add value throughout the entire project timeline. Collaboration is increased through 3D building information models (BIM) and cloud computing and mobile technology. Owners, architects, engineers and subcontractors are communicating with greater understanding and engagement to make the most informed decisions for project success. Integrated project teams are changing the way we transform communities and skylines.

The ability to model a building virtually first, shifts risk to a place where it can be managed with minimal impact. Coordination meetings now incorporate the clash detection and resolution of MEP subcontractor models for conflict before being built. Holding these ​virtual reviews increases the level of quality control early, to reduce costly field conflicts later.

Technology is connecting the field and office in ways never done before. iPad tablets bring mobility to project information, daily logs, RFIs and electronic punch lists. Digital plan tables incorporate up-to-date digital drawing sets and full 3D models. Mobile technology increases the speed of analysis and resolving conflicts on site resulting in reduced time and cost.

If it can be done better, it should be.  As leaders in virtual design and construction, we use advanced digital tools to add value throughout the entire project timeline, reducing cost, time and waste, while improving efficiency and quality. Our teams are on the cutting edge of research and development, working to find the latest construction technologies.
