Major construction companies invest significant amounts of money, time, talent, and energy in providing their crews with the latest technology, both in the office and in the field. Understanding the importance of addressing all of the elements of the project in a holistic manner, many companies are including their subcontractors and trade partners in their technology plans. By investing in a blanket licensing agreement so that recurring partners are covered, collaboration is easier and the projects more productive.
As an example, Touchplan, a collaborative construction planning technology platform, and The Boldt Co., entered into a definitive enterprise-wide agreement that provides the Wisconsin-based construction firm and their selected subcontractor partners unlimited use of Touchplan’s daily planning software on all of its construction projects.
Along with collaboration capabilities that link the master schedule to the daily plan, anywhere and anytime, Touchplan intends to provide unique jobsite data and analytics across all Boldt projects via its planning software platform and through the development of its API (application programming interface) capabilities to increase overall project efficiency.
Started in 1889 by Martin Boldt, Boldt has grown to more than 2,000 employees with 17 offices across the country. The company focuses on nine core markets including healthcare, power and energy, industrial, automotive, education, commercial, science and technology, religious, and the public sector. With annual revenues exceeding $1 billion, the firm is a nationally recognized leader in integrated lean project delivery within a variety of markets. Boldt is headquartered in Appleton, Wis.
Touchplan also has a 3-year enterprise-wide agreement with Alberici Constructors, and sister company Flintco. The agreement provides the two North American construction firms and their trade partners unlimited use of Touchplan’s daily planning software. The diversified Alberici-Flintco enterprise is known for delivering superior construction quality and customer service for clients in multiple sectors, including commercial, heavy/light industrial, civil, healthcare, higher education, aerospace, multifamily, manufacturing, water/wastewater, and automotive. With operations in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Alberici-Flintco offers general contracting, construction management, and design-build solutions with self-perform capabilities including steel fabrication, concrete, and other key scopes of work.
Touchplan provides a daily construction planning software that makes project outcomes more predictable and profitable. It strives to deliver approachable, progressive jobsite data and analytics solutions that transform construction into a more collaborative, transparent, and predictable process for everyone involved.
To increase its value to contractors, Touchplan has a partnership with Autodesk Construction Cloud, a portfolio of software and services that combines advanced technology, a builder’s network, and predictive insights for construction teams. Now, customers can easily track and analyze realtime project health, risk, and performance directly in their Autodesk Build or BIM 360 Project Home dashboards.
Integrating Touchplan with Autodesk Construction Cloud enables project managers to draw important insights as they monitor their construction results alongside their lookahead planning. To date, more than 3,300 project teams have used Touchplan successfully to optimize the delivery of more than $55.4 billion in construction.
