Our Customers Do Amazing Things
We asked our customers to tell us about an awesome project they have been working in the last few years. Nearly 30 companies submitted projects for consideration. Submissions ranged from successfully handling the challenges of project labor while constructing a bioenergy project in Hawaii to orchestrating the construction of a 110-unit affordable housing project in close proximity to the Bay Area Rapid Transit station.
Featuring the most collaborative, challenging and innovative projects of the year, the awards are designed to celebrate the project success of Viewpoint customers and highlight the unique ways construction firms are leveraging technology to improve operations.
Ultimately, three companies stood out and were recognized as follows:
Gaylord of the Rockies Hotel and Resort — Encore Electric — A large-scale, 3-year project involving more than 200 specialty contractors. Emphasis on safety, morale, and collaboration among the 1,700 craftspeople kept teams working cohesively to overcome challenges and meet project delivery goals.
“It is great to see how many construction firms are approaching projects through an innovative lens and really leveraging technology to create solution-driven outcomes. It was an honor to be a part of the judging committee and fun to be among a group of peers that value doing things better and differently, just like we do.”
Boston Harbor Submarine Cable — Caldwell Marine International and ECI Drilling International part of the JAG Companies — Installed 3 miles of submarine cable across Boston Harbor. On-site crew communicated with out-of-state HQ offices using Viewpoint software to seamlessly integrate financial and project management. Key functions of Vista include approving invoices, tracking equipment, writing purchase orders and subcontracts, and billing the owners of the job.
Most Innovative Use of Technology
BOTs and Natural Language Processing — Pan Pacific Mechanical — Developed technology to identify valuable information from everyday speech and carry out actions based on the information. Implementation in Viewpoint software to retrieve valuable project information based on verbal cues.
“We were overwhelmed with the quality of the submissions this year; it was a real challenge for the committee to select only three companies and projects. Now more than ever, construction companies are connecting critical business functions like accounting and project management with field operations as a necessary component of increasing efficiency. This makes their jobs much easier, but our jobs as judges much harder.”
