• Integrated solutions to address changing market demands

    Changing market demands have led to a major shift in the approach to construction projects. Although it was always necessary to consider the lifecycle aspects of construction projects, the main focus has traditionally been on the design and build process. Nowadays, owners and users of buildings and infrastructures demand truly integrated solutions. Operations, sustainability, information technology and maintenance are important components of these integrated solutions. Being able to deliver against the full set of requirements however, requires a different approach and skill set than construction companies traditionally have. The resulting engagements span the lifecycle of a building or piece of infrastructure, and have a much higher degree of complexity. Implementing and sustaining the capabilities required to manage these complexities, requires significant changes in the organization, processes and technologies used both at the level of a project and the individual companies participating in these projects.

  • Multi Industry collaboration to meet lifecycle requirements

    Designing, delivering and operating against requirements with an increasing scope, requires a different approach. Where traditional collaboration is between companies with various technological specializations closely related to the construction process, collaboration will need to extend to companies specializing in finance, operations, maintenance and information technology. This changes the dynamics of the team involved during the lifecycle of a construction project. This change in dynamics also results in the fact that it is no longer a given that a construction company serves as the main contractor. Scope expansion and a longer collaboration in construction projects result in the need to apply state of the art processes and tooling to support the collaboration process and allow access to and use of asset data during the lifecycle of a building or an infrastructure.

  • The digital lifecycle of construction projects

    Productivity levels in the construction industry have shown no significant increase in the past 50 years. Compared to other major industries, the speed of innovation has been extremely low. Dicitas Consulting believes that through the increased application of digital technology, this is about to change…..

    The application and further development of digital technologies will have a large impact on the planning and execution of construction projects and even more so on the operational and maintenance activities related to buildings and infrastructures. BIM (Building Information Modelling), in combination with next generation collaboration tools, gives the opportunity to boost productivity in construction by providing the ability to solve issues early on in the design process, providing better planning capabilities, allowing simulation of construction works, improving lifecycle support and effectively supporting complex collaboration. We believe that new digital technologies should always be applied in conjunction with changes in the organization and project processes as well as in the individual companies participating in these projects. If implemented in the right way, this will allow construction projects to be planned and executed with much greater precision, with much higher productivity levels – not only during the design and construction phase, but also, and more importantly, during the use phase of a building or infrastructure.

    Dicitas Consulting helps organizations implement the necessary changes in business processes, organization and technology, as well as build the capabilities required to thrive in a rapidly changing market.
