How users benefit from RefinemySite:

Challenge

Complex construction projects involve many project team members, and are characterized by distinct dynamics. This often leads to a lack of transparency and increased coordination efforts. As a result, it’s difficult to keep all parties fully aware of the current project status, and project team members have to respond quickly to changes. This frequently leads to delays in project execution.

Solution

The use of RefinemySite construction management software brought all parties together digitally. All project participants were provided with a central, easily accessible information platform enabling them to collaborate digitally in a more integrated manner on a holistic scale. This allowed all project members to start digital planning from the project’s early stages and to streamline the planning processes.

What's more, three additional methodologies were used to address the project’s challenges: joint identification and scheduling of work packages per project phase, regular Lean meetings, and the mutual presentation of the planners’ respective planning statuses to each other and the owner at predefined points to receive timely feedback on necessary adjustments and dependencies.

Advantages

Joint, digital project planning — supported by RefinemySite — enabled all project participants to:

  • be involved at an early stage
  • plan timelines realistically, schedule them properly, and adhere to them
  • document and view processes, work packages and dependencies in a way that is visible to everyone
  • receive project updates at any time and from any location
  • make coordination more targeted and efficient

With the help of RefinemySite, we were able to digitally adapt the Last Planner System®. The tool was the basis for cooperative collaboration across the project team, and for transparency through all processes.

Collaboration between many project participants on one platform

Project participants virtually discuss the planning for the next few weeks using the RefinemySite calendar.

RefinemySite enabled all parties to collaborate digitally, create transparency, build trust, and thereby achieve project success.
