Create a 10 pages page paper that discusses how to promote the implementation of project management innovations. The characteristic view of the industry is of a brought together multidisciplinary group, hence making coordinating issues very imperative to the success of the projects undertaken by the industry. Failure to acknowledge coordination issues as an imperative facet for the success of projects is one of the reasons why the AEC-industry has been trailing behind other production industries in terms of efficiency development and innovation of project implementation. Another reason that has resulted in this trend as Lamont (2001) identified, is that the industry lags behind other industries in terms of the use of technology and innovation.
Caledonian Contractors are bidding for a major contract for the delivery of a framework involving 12 schools in the next eight years. So as to successfully bid for the schools’ framework and similar future work, Caledonian Contractors will come up with a solution which will address the issues of effective communication and collaboration within its multidisciplinary departments as well as issues pertaining to technology and innovation in the implementation of the project in its different phases.
This report aims to show how Caledonian Contractors will come up with solutions to the problems noted above, so as to emerge as the best bidders for the delivery of the framework involving 12 schools. To achieve this conceivably impossible objective, this report will show how Caledonian Contractors will employ technologies and innovative strategies such as the use of Construction Project Extranets (CPE’s) e.g. building information modeling (BIM). .
Construction Project Extranet (CPE) can be defined as any electronic or internet-based technological platform that enables communication via the Internet, electronic exchange of data, electronic project management, and virtual teamwork for AEC-projects.
