Owners and managers can utilize the password protected, web-based site for information on the construction project schedule and status at all times. The customized application enables instant access to all aspects of the project, including status reports, progress graphs and charts, as well as upcoming deadlines for all identified contractual deliverables.
"Through this system we provide owners with information they can use to more accurately predict project delays early in the project and take action - avoiding the additional maintenance costs, higher energy costs, and shortened equipment life that incomplete systems can cause," said Della Barba.
Inchstone Heads Off Unexpected Downtime
According to EH&E's engineers, the most common problems experienced by owners and facility managers upon occupancy are equipment start-up deficiencies and balancing delays, either of which can result in many thousands of dollars in unexpected maintenance costs and hundreds of hours of downtime or employee inconvenience.
"The root cause of almost all of these problems is incomplete systems testing prior to occupancy, because while all systems need to be functional to get the certificate of occupancy, verified design performance (full value purchased!) is not a requirement. Our system tracks key indicators that we've shown can accurately predict when this situation is likely to occur, giving the construction team time to react," added Della Barba.
