Yesterday, we had a meeting to discuss a presentation on changes that we are making to our process. Some of these things are:
- No more estimating! The estimating department is changing it's name to Planning and Cost EngineeringTM.
- New work flows, so that we have the resources to virtually build the project before actual construction begins.
- New staff - like me! Positions like Building Information Modelers and 4D Logistics Manager are appearing across the industry.
- Change of philosophy: as John says, "We love our owners dearly, but we are all working for the project."
