Mortenson Construction Redefines the Building Experience with ProjectConnect®

MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mortenson Construction, a U.S.-based contractor and a leader in integrated project delivery, today announced ProjectConnect®, an intuitive, project collaboration platform that seamlessly connects all aspects of a Mortenson project in real-time.  ProjectConnect gives customers and project teams secure and immediate access to critical project information wherever and whenever it's needed, resulting in transparency, improved quality and efficiency, and a reduction in the time and cost of construction.

More than a document management tool, ProjectConnect enables live collaboration among customers and project teams. It is distinct because it was built from the vantage point of Mortenson having witnessed issues with both traditional file-sharing sites and the newest cutting-edge technology. Working with its customers and project teams, Mortenson addressed those critical issues and developed a holistic solution that is fully integrated into the company's building process.

ProjectConnect features mobile, 24/7 access with an easy-to-navigate web dashboard that streamlines communications and serves as the comprehensive source for project information. It offers custom levels of security and access, and can deliver everything from executive-level project status reports; to schedules, designs, 3D models, budgets, specifications, safety plans, and meeting minutes for project teams.  It also includes project photos, live webcams, and weather reports. 

"As an architect working on behalf of the Owner, ProjectConnect keeps me up to speed with all of the latest design documentation," said Tom Trout, vice president of architecture and planning, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.  "ProjectConnect drives collaboration and insures I have the latest information.  It also gives me a comfort level that the contractor and project partners are building to the latest information.  All that and it is easy to use."

The Oracle-based platform is part of Mortenson's advanced integrated project delivery process and has been tested on more than 30 projects to date.  Information is highly secure through multiple levels of user access controls that are customizable to each project.  ProjectConnect features class-leading data security and encryption, and is actively monitored.

"We are committed to enhancing the building process through the integration of world-class technology and processes," said Dan Johnson, chief operating officer at Mortenson.  "ProjectConnect is an integral part of how we build and it better connects our customers and project teams from the planroom to the boardroom.  By enhancing the collaborative process and enabling better transparency, we are improving efficiency and the overall customer experience."

Mortenson recently received the 2012 Engineering and Construction Industry Excellence Award from Oracle for ProjectConnect.  More information on ProjectConnect can be found at mortenson.com/projectconnect

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
