Putting Your Field Processes in Overdrive
The Top Reasons Why Trimble Field Link is Your Best Option

Far more than just a field controller software for a total station, Trimble Field Link offers several unique capabilities that enhance results for field crews and project management teams alike. Watch this webinar to learn about the sweeping changes that Trimble Field Link has undergone in the last 2 years and highlight the unique capabilities that separate it from the competition. You’ll also be given insight into the future direction Trimble plans to take with respect to field process and BIM workflows. View Recording here

 

Is GNSS Technology Appropriate for Your Next Layout or QA/QC Project?
Why did Trimble add GNSS technology to our Building Construction portfolio? Because you asked for it?

With the addition of the Trimble R8s to our building construction lineup, contractors can now tap into the convenience of satellite positioning while still using the same proven workflows of Trimble Field Link. When vertical accuracy does not require sub-centimeter tolerance, GNSS technology is smart way to expedite layout and QA/QC tasks. Unlike existing total station workflows with GNSS, all you need is a clear view of the sky to get the positions you need on site. Eliminate dozens of trips back to the tripod and repeated set-ups and break-downs. View Recording here

ACCESS CONTROLS:

Workforce Management: More than just who's here

One primary objective that will likely ensure a successful project outcome is to make sure to have the right labor, equipment and materials in the right place at the right time. Sounds easy right? Well, it’s never easy, but materials and equipment do what they’re told and stay where they’re placed. People, on the other hand, are prone to doing what they want and going where they’d like. This webinar will introduce you to Trimble CrewSight, a workforce management solution to help you to better manage your workforce and contribute to a more successful and profitable project outcome. View Recording here

 

Maximize Project Efficiency Through Effective Personnel Management

Watch the recorded webinar and learn how Trimble CrewSight will provide visibility and transparency into the jobsite workforce and provide valuable information that can be used to assess performance, evaluate progress, and make timely decisions. You’ll also learn about how integrating this information with Prolog provides additional benefits to the project team in terms of visibility, information quality, and operational efficiency.  View Recording here

 

 
PROJECT CONTROLS:

Introducing Expanded Capabilities in Prolog

Prolog is the best choice for management of all data that is needed for informed decision making in construction. And now it’s even more powerful: drilling down from portfolio to project to budget, from summary down to the individual transaction, Prolog provides the answers you need.

Simplify Project Management in the Field

When it comes to project management, control is everything. With countless moving parts, it can be a struggle to effectively manage work crews while keeping stakeholders informed. Introducing Trimble ProjectSight, a first-of-its-kind project management tool that empowers project teams with relevant, real-time data for informed decision making. It’s everything you need to know, right at your fingertips.

Leveraging Trimble Connect for More Effective Construction Workflows
Trimble has been focused on making substantive improvements to workflows with improved collaboration. Effective implementation of round trip workflows (Office to Field to Office) requires connected solutions, coordinated teams, and anytime access. For layout tasks, as-built assessments and structural components, Trimble is streamlining workflows with seamless, real time updates to reduce rework and improve overall team efficiency.

Today Trimble Connect, combined with Trimble office and field solutions, is simplifying the process of connecting teams, coordinating efforts and improving timely access to important project data.

In this edition of Building With Trimble, we’ll show that reducing or eliminating manual data transfer is not only feasible today, it’s a mandate for many progressive construction firms today. Join us to see how your round trip workflow might be transformed in the near future.

ESTIMATING:

Manage your Data better with Vico Office

Are you ready to get serious about managing your model-based estimating and scheduling data? BIM adoption has grown significantly in recent years and practitioners are relying more heavily on models to convey important project data.

Trimble Vico Office is the integrated platform where construction estimating, scheduling and design management all come together.  Our latest update to Vico supports information-rich content coming from all authoring applications. Users are now empowered with maximum flexibility so model-based estimating and scheduling feel like a natural extension to working with 3D models.   View Recording here

 

What's New in Modelogix 3.5

Leveraging your historical costs is now more collaborative than ever with Modelogix 3.5.
This month’s Building With Trimble will focus on the newest Modelogix release.

You’ll learn about how 3.5 enables:
– Easier collaboration for distributed teams
– Dramatically simplified deployment of the software
– A virtually maintenance free product
– Better performance

Modelogix is Trimble’s Business Intelligence tool for contractors to capture, benchmark, and analyze all structured historical cost data in a secure, centralized database. Imported data is tagged with cost-driving attributes for enhanced searchability. The structured and attributed project cost information can then be used to build cost models within the application. By leveraging historical costs in the conceptual estimating process, Modelogix can dramatically reduce the time spent producing an early-phase budget for the owner, also improving the budgets accuracy. Modelogix will help you win more work, save time and build stronger client relationships.  View Recording here

Prolog Integration Series: Estimating and Cost Control

Because controlling costs is such a critical element in managing large projects, many progressive project managers are seeking ways to automate the flow of cost data throughout the project lifecycle from concept all the way to completion. In this installment of Building With Trimble, we uncover how automated data connections between feasibility, cost estimating and project controls eliminate many manual steps, reduces project risk and transforms project teams’ overall productivity.  View Recording here

 

Target Costing with Trimble Vico Office

Target costing design has continually proven to be one of the most powerful benefits of leveraging Vico Office for BIM. In this episode of Building with Trimble, Matt Zwetzig, of Vega Architecture in Denver, shows their preferred approach to the target costing workflow.

Within the session you’ll learn how Vico Office can be used to set target pricing with even the lowest levels of design concept; once set, target costs serve as a continual benchmark that can be tracked against each and every iteration of the design. You’ll learn how setting target costs provides for a more predictable project in terms of meeting program requirements and project budget. Afterwards, attendees will have a firm grasp on how to replicate a similar workflow on their own projects by using Vico Office’s model-based estimating approach. View Recording here
