Project Intelligence Reduces Risk
Project: World’s Longest Floating Bridge
The World’s Longest Floating Bridge opened to traffic this month after 4 years of construction. While not uncommon necessary changes to the project design in the construction phase can cause costly delays and endanger the safety of infrastructure projects if not addressed quickly.
In 2013 cracks formed in the first batch of pontoons because of state design errors, requiring a year of fixes. When the state missed its goal of a completed floating section by late 2014 causing taxpayers to absorb $342 million in cost overruns the agency started looking at ways to reduce risk and accelerate delivery through the use of innovative new technologies.
That’s when they decided to make use of Project Intelligence when managing this massive construction project.
In early 2016 use of a Project Intelligence platform allowed the project inspection team to document, communicate and define a resolution plan regarding missing components during construction of the bridge deck span in hours instead of days.
Missing tie wires identified…
Confirmed the error with the platform’s mobile access to the most up to date project plans…
And provided photo observations and notes of the resolution plan – time and date stamped- if needed for disputes in the future.
