DATA AS A DISCIPLINE™
Our Unique Approach
At Levcon Analytics, we see building owners struggle to collect building data, the lack of coordination between stakeholders during design and construction, and the incredible waste in construction that impacts the building owner’s bottom line.
And, we developed our own unique approach and technology to change this.
Data as a Discipline™ (DaaD™) is at the heart of our foundation and what drives us. DaaD™ is the practice of identifying, leveraging and auditing data to drive the planning, design, construction and operations of a building.
By utilizing a single source of truth (SSOT) in Convergit™, our data integration platform, we are sharing data between architects, engineers, contractors and building owners to streamline the design and building process and maximize your value for every dollar spent.
Single Source of Truth (SSOT) in Building Construction
Requires architects, engineers, contractors and building owners to maintain their own records and introduces the possibility of conflicting information.
Communication With Convergit™
Utilizing an SSOT, Convergit™ simplifies the exchange of information by storing data in one central location and ensures accuracy of data.
Four Reasons Why Business Owners Should Embrace DaaD™
1. Supports Facility Operations
Many owners struggle to collect the building data they need to populate asset management or maintenance work order platforms. They resort to clunky excel spreadsheets or rely on maintenance personnel to survey a building that has just been brought online because the right information is rarely turned over from the design and construction team.
Establishing a data strategy for design and construction allows for the identification, management and auditing of information needed to ensure a smooth transition between construction and operations.
2. Ensures Standards Are Incorporated
It’s vitally important for design and construction partners to incorporate the owner’s project requirements. Those standards are typically communicated via documents, meeting minutes, phone calls, and the like. However, these modes of information transfer present the opportunity for crucial details to be missed and do not allow for auditing measures beyond review of the construction documents.
By translating these project requirements to data and inserting them into the building model, algorithms can be created to review the model and confirm compliance. This provides owners to easily verify the percentage of their standards that have been implemented.
3. Coordinates Responsibilities
Between the different departments representing the building owner (real estate, facilities, construction, etc.) and those brought in to design and construct the project (architects, consultants, contractors, etc.), there are many stakeholders involved in creating the built environment. Communicating scope responsibility from team to team can result in errors and fail to pick up changes from new information such as a revised lease or contract.
Databasing responsibilities in one location and providing all stakeholders access to that single source of truth mitigates the mistakes that result from team-to-team communication. It also ensures no one is left out when changes to those responsibilities occur.
4. Provides a Return on Investment
Building owners are investing time and money into promoting the use of building information modeling to their project partners and creating the applicable standards. However, many struggle to realize a return on these investments, and fail to appreciate all of the unique opportunities available to them.
By fully embracing the ‘information’ within building information modeling, building owners are able to finally realize the benefits they originally anticipated in adopted digital workflows. Deducting everything down to data, as the universal common denominator that it is, the unifying promise of technology is unlocked.
