Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, 2017/09/15 - PCL’s Project Analytics initiative has been recognized by the Information and Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) as a Large Private Sector finalist for the 2017 Ingenious Awards - IngeniousAwards.ca / PCL.com.
The PCL family of companies is pleased to announce that PCL’s Project Analytics initiative has been recognized by the Information and Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) as a Large Private Sector finalist for the 2017 Ingenious Awards.
PCL’s Project Analytics is an innovative analytics/dashboard solution that provides key performance indicators for the cost, quality, scheduling, safety, and staffing of a construction project. PCL’s Project Analytics solves technical challenges around data access, allowing for transparent discussions and measurable insight into how a project is progressing, leading indicators of any difficulties, and successes.
“We are exceptionally proud of our business intelligence team at PCL for creating a successful solution for project analytics,” says Mark Bryant, chief information officer, PCL Construction. “The power of the Project Analytics dashboard is that it generates a meaningful, collaborative, and proactive discussion around adopting leaner construction practices. Most importantly, it is another innovative way in which we successfully realize the vision of our clients while maintaining full transparency and data security.”
Project Analytics was recently piloted during the ongoing construction of the Los Angeles Midfield North Satellite Concourse project, a joint venture between PCL and Turner Construction. In what would usually take one year to build, the PCL project analytics team created the LAX Midfield Satellite Concourse KPI Dashboard for our client, Los Angeles World Airports, in just 40 days.
Winners will be announced at the Ingenious Awards Gala Dinner on November 9 in Toronto.
