Webcast: Vico Services 101: Mastering the 4D Schedule

Friday, September 11, 2009 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT - Webcast Date/Time

Webinar Registration

In an environment where there are smaller projects with plenty of bidders under a hard bid edict, it’s imperative that you remain competitive on your fees and general conditions. How so?

At-risk General Conditions are typically 7-11% and getting skinnier in this economy. In a hard bid, if your schedule extends even just one month, you’re bound to pay the whole expense. And that expense knocks up against the 7-11%.

How can General Contractors master the schedule, even in hard bid conditions? In this special Fridays with Vico webinar, we’ll demonstrate how Vico Control can help you bid a shorter schedule, as well as manage and meet that tighter schedule. Vico Control also allows you to vet the credibility of the bids from subs with whom you’ll be sharing the risk. The software and methodology gives you a much clearer, farther-forward-look at the project so you and your team can make adjustments earlier. In addition, you also gain the ability to do what-if scenarios and strategize how you will bid the job: you’ll better understand how to attack the project and prepare a more competitive price based on schedule control.

It’s counter-intuitive to think that a tighter schedule mitigates risk. But you haven’t seen Vico Control, our quantities-driven, location-based, and resource-balanced scheduling software.

This webinar is for you and your firm if:
~Hard bids have become the de facto bidding process in your market;
~You want to develop hard bid strategies quickly, but might not have time to develop a BIM;
~You know you'll discover change orders during the project, but you want to find them sooner;
~You understand that construction-caliber quantities drive a more precise schedule and estimate - you just haven't seen it in action;
~You want to protect your fee and believe that 4D and 5D BIM done right will mitigate project risk.

Please be sure for forward along this invitation to your team.
