Orlando, FL, United States, 2011/11/29 - Commercial construction veterans Timothy H. Bernardi and Jose D. Amaya selected the orlando-based multimedia experts at Intellavia to create a unique construction simulation e-learning platform - Intellavia.com.
Building the Building is a web-based, interactive education program teaching the fundamentals of commercial construction project management to a middle school thru high school audience. Using a rich multimedia environment and a challenging Construction Simulation Experience, students are introduced to commercial construction – learning the language of the trade and gaining an understanding about the day to day challenges that come with the management of a commercial construction project.
To bring the concept to life, the Building the Building (BTB) team turned to Intellavia, a company with a proven track record in developing software programs that combine target-appropriate graphic design with high functioning usability. Though important with all digital communication initiatives, e-learning programs (in particular) require a well thought out user experience. BTB owners Timothy H. Bernardi and Jose D. Amaya conveyed their real-world wealth of process driven knowledge to Intellavia to create a multi-media knowledge transfer that would resonate with youngsters, teachers and the construction industry as a whole.
"Our goal was to create a young person's guide to commercial construction project management," commented Timothy H. Bernardi, a BTB partner. "The cornerstone of the Building the Building program is its academic credibility."
Jose D. Amaya continued,"The program's content has drawn from our professional experience in commercial construction. We've just completed the demo and are now engaging Intellavia to build out additional portions of the program."
The simulation demo is complete and the phase 2 academic portion is in progress. Once the full program is deployed, students will receive a comprehensive evaluation of their performance.
