Fundamental changes that drive competitiveness

The E&C industry is experiencing fundamental changes that drive competitiveness and affect future operations.  Collaborative project delivery methods are increasingly popular, including increased coordination with upstream and downstream business partners.  Contracting is becoming more challenging as global competition increases and owners move towards lump sum, turnkey contracts.

Improvements in technology such as 3D BIM modeling and early stage 5D Macro BIM design are making the integration of design and construction more efficient, effective, and competitive.  BIM in turn enables offsite pre-fabrication, driving construction schedule compression.  IoT continues to make inroads into the construction site, generating vast volumes of data.

Much like their customers, E&C companies also face a rapidly evolving regulatory environment.  Successful execution, in the face of these changes and challenges, depends on crucial, timely, and accurate information.

This dynamic environment is transforming the industry, rewarding organizations that can leverage information to manage costs and protect margins.  In order to remain competitive, organizations must closely examine their information, processes, and people to ensure that these enable, rather than hinder, efficient, cost effective, and safe operations.

Transforming information-centric processes.
