Design and construction processes are intricate journeys that entail thousands of decisions throughout all stages. In this journey, seeking input and feedback is paramount to the success of the project – not only from the users and owners but also from consultants, contractors, suppliers, and all stakeholders involved in bringing the design from concept to reality. However, with today’s tools we encounter a significant challenge – prevailing communication systems fail to foster productivity and lack the capacity to establish a clear and robust record of the outcomes. Therefore, data becomes siloed, valuable time is wasted, and decisions become disconnected.
Today, we are excited to share a significant advancement of the Concert digital platform that solves this problem. Concert was created to provide the robust data record necessary in today’s digital design and construction ecosystem. Our new features leverage that core value – a persistent record of the design and construction process – to create a persistent record of the decision process.
The Concert platform unites the entire project team in a seamless digital space, empowering them to share information and resolve problems effortlessly throughout the design and construction journey. Here’s why you’ll love it:
