The Prolog Health Check

The clock has almost run out on 2017. But the year-end is a great time to verify and evaluate your existing project controls processes. It’s precisely this reason why BuildingPoint offers the Prolog Health Check for existing Prolog instances. The concept and idea behind Prolog is simple. With the myriad of customization and workflow options within Prolog, the Health Check provides a turn-key process to ensure that your project controls solution fits perfectly within your workflow.

Over time, processes within your organization change and morph, sometimes so slowly that it’s impossible to even notice. The Prolog Health Check represents an opportunity to take a step back and optimize the software to perfectly sync with your current best practices. This level of customization is possible because of Trimble Prolog’s powerful customization and workflow capabilities.

Additionally, the Health Check is provided as a straight-forward, fixed price service. This low-cost/high-impact engagement is the perfect step towards ensuring your Prolog instance is perfectly optimized. To learn more about the Prolog Health Check, simply click the link below, or contact your BuildingPoint representative today.

Foundations Episode #28 – Building In The Right Spot

The first step in building a great building, is making sure that it’s in the right spot, and to do that, contractors need surveyors. The relationship between building construction and geospatial, or surveying and engineering is complex, and yet, extremely vital. In this episode, we’re joined by Bill Stettner of AllTerra Florida to help us cover this topic, and break down this relationship.

The Weakest Link – The Rod Bubble

The lowly rod bubble. It doesn’t garner many brochures, or slick product videos, or well… come to think of it, it’s the first component of your field layout kit to be overlooked. But it’s a fact. Your rod bubble is absolutely integral to ensuring that your field layout is as accurate and repeatable as possible. In fact, in many cases, bubble error represents the single largest delta in field measurement.

And while it’s not a cool or trendy topic to discuss, it is important. BuildingPoint strongly recommends implementing a rod calibration routine into your layout practices. Jobsites are tough and demanding environments. Rods get bumped, dropped and jostled every single day. By adding a daily rod check to your process, you can rest assured that your field measurements are maintaining the accuracy you expect.

Your BuildingPoint Field Specialist also provides a simple and easy calibration jig that you can quickly mount in your jobsite trailer or field office to ensure rod calibration. This simple sub-$100 tool, combined with less than a minute of verification, can keep your layout working at a consistent and efficient pace throughout the life of your project.

Searchable And Scalable Cost Data

Our modern lives run on data. Whether we realize it or not, everything we do largely relies upon datasets in one way or another. Historical cost planning is no different. In most organizations, the problem isn’t that the data isn’t there. The problem instead is that this important data is scattered throughout the organization. Trimble Modelogix brings all of these various datasets and actual costs together into a single unified database. Making your historical data actionable and insightful.

As a historical cost planning tool, Modelogix is built around simplicity and accessibility. Configured to mirror the way your organization already works, Modelogix uses real-world terminology and simple criteria to provide you with the results and answers you need, quickly and easily. If you’re providing a conceptual estimate for healthcare project in Miami, you can easily locate similar projects you’ve completed in Orlando and Tampa, and then apply cost historically derived cost adjustments to accommodate your historical experience within the South Florida market. This unparalleled power and visibility unlocks one of the most underutilized assets within your organization… your completed projects.
