Facility Grid for General Contractors (GC):
Successful on-time delivery of operationally ready buildings in complex environments
With building designs and systems becoming increasingly complex, regulations expanding and owner expectations rising, GCs are challenged to deliver more. Success or failure will impact future business. Knowing building systems are ready to operate requires transparency, accountability and collaboration through the construction lifecycle.
GCs often find themselves managing the construction lifecycle of building equipment and systems within spreadsheets because current software solutions fail to support this process well and efficiently. Facility Grid can help.
Facility Grid solves the challenges related to tracking and verifying the operational readiness of building systems and equipment. The software provides unmatched transparency into the status of building systems and equipment each step of the way. Access to Facility Grid KPIs improves accountability, improves project results and profitability.
With Facility Grid issues are identified early and resolved early when resources are available. GCs are well aligned with the commissioning process to avoid surprises, and be confidently prepared for all functional testing activities, O&M training, and final sign-offs while reducing extra days on-site.
