Connecting the entire design, build, and operate lifecycle of infrastructure projects is critical to maximizing efficiencies within funding parameters. Delivering construction projects on-time and on budget is key, but when every project relies on a multitude of different software to see it through its lifecycle, managing the project becomes complex and difficult.
Trimble Construction One™ provides public asset owners and contractors with the SaaS solutions needed to facilitate comprehensive project management at every stage of the project lifecycle. By facilitating complete visibility in one cloud-based solution that encompasses every stage of infrastructure projects, Trimble Construction One provides the tools to manage the complexities of communication between owners, specialty contractors, and the myriad departments involved in planning, permitting, ordering, and maintaining infrastructure. It unites the design, build, and operate phases under one umbrella, ensuring clarity for all stakeholders, fewer risks at every stage of project life, and better financial predictions for the user.
Cityworks accompanies the infrastructure planning and maintenance lifecycle from permitting through construction to maintenance and repair by streamlining the communication between stakeholders. Cityworks PLL handles the permitting, licensing, and land use issues that mark the beginning of the build phase, while Cityworks AMS ensures comprehensive asset management. To accomplish this, the Cityworks platform integrates with e-Builder on the Trimble Construction One™ Cloud, tying the permitting and licensing aspects needed to get a build off the ground to the construction project and then ensuring a complete picture of the assets involved are logged, including their location, using ArcGIS technology.
Cityworks offers a complete range of software solutions to help you manage your infrastructure projects, including Cityworks AMS, PLL, OpX, Operational Insights, Workload, Pavement Management, Storeroom, and Cityworks Mobile Apps. With project oversight and ArcGIS technology leveraged to ensure each project is tied to its geographic location with pinpoint accuracy, Cityworks takes the guesswork out of permitting, licensing, and asset and warehouse management.
E-Builder provides users with a suite of software solutions designed to carry your construction project through the entire build phase. From pre-construction planning to project management and financial solutions, e-Builder gives users the ability to visualize each step as you take an infrastructure project from blueprint to built.
Plan for New Projects with the Insights of Cityworks Permitting, Licensing, and Land
With Cityworks PLL, you put the power of permitting and licensing into a framework that helps you plan your infrastructure needs with an eye to the future. Permitting requests can happen months to years in advance of a major project. By utilizing the power of Cityworks PLL, you can begin to integrate those plans into the overall picture of your municipality from their inception and plan your infrastructure needs accordingly.
The city of St. Louis currently uses Cityworks PLL to strengthen and revitalize their community. With a system in place for residents to request revitalization projects related to derelict and abandoned buildings in their communities, Cityworks PLL allows St. Louis to link resident requests to previously submitted requests to avoid duplicated efforts and facilitates the cross-departmental cooperation necessary to inspect each site and develop revitalization plans in coordination with various stakeholder groups.
During the build phase of the project, Cityworks AMS ensures assets are tracked and logged, enabling a comprehensive overview to be created for the operating phase. With 80% of project cost occurring after the build phase is complete, managing assets throughout the project lifecycle facilitates the effective capital management that is crucial to infrastructure projects. The computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) that Cityworks provides ensures easy tracking of assets from their installation to the end of their lifecycle, allowing you to manage budgets and efficiently monitor maintenance and replacement costs.
With the Asset Management Software (AMS) of Cityworks, you can manage project costs at every stage of their lifecycle, from initial installation to maintenance activity to critical replacements. The e-Builder integration ensures every material asset logged during the build phase can be seamlessly transferred to the Cityworks AMS platform. With Cityworks AMS, you track assets in the field and monitor their health, weighing everything from repair and replacement costs to critical failure predictions. And with ArcGIS Indoor Integration Model (AIIM), Cityworks AMS ensures that geographic asset management is possible even within a vertical constructed space.
Streamline Asset Management to Maintain Schedules
Materials management is an essential part of construction success. The cloud-based SaaS capabilities of the Cityworks platform ensures you can track the entire lifecycle of the materials you’re using in your project, from large pieces of equipment for construction to the individual components of the build.
The power of Cityworks combines with e-Builder to create a comprehensive asset management program aligned with your budgetary parameters from inception to realization. Missing even one step in your project management can result in lost time and lost money. The Cityworks e-Builder integration on the Trimble Construction One Cloud™ allows you to build asset management into the very beginning of your project within a connected infrastructure system designed to build maintenance into your project from the beginning.
The city of Celina, Texas has used the GIS powers of Cityworks to modernize their record keeping and help a rapidly growing suburb of Dallas to modernize track their current infrastructure and build modernization into their planning.
Build Maintenance Strategies Into Your Project
Anything from a utility pole to water main has a known lifespan. That lifespan can be affected by factors ranging from degree of use to weather exposure. Tracking the myriad details that can cause an asset to require maintenance or replacement is complex. With Cityworks, the assets logged with e-Builder are automatically migrated across the Trimble Construction One platform and integrated into Cityworks AMS.
Their precise location management on Cityworks’ ArcGIS-enabled platform to the maintenance logs associated with their upkeep and the financial records critical to making informed decisions regarding repairs and replacements. This ensures that city infrastructure is maintained from the day it is installed to the day it is replaced with accuracy and accountability. With infrastructure a front-and-center issue for municipalities around the country, leveraging the organizational power of Cityworks enables you to make informed decisions during your project’s lifecycle.
