Founded in 1947, Plant Construction Company, L.P. (Plant), #236 on the ENR Top 400 Contractors list, is a leading construction company in the San Francisco Bay Area. The company provides preconstruction, construction management, and general contracting services to a diverse group of loyal clients that has grown steadily over the years. Plant’s commitment to quality and personalized service has led to a varied portfolio of project experience including hospitality, retail, office, education, multi-family residential, cultural, and civic structures.
From its inception, Plant has been an early adopter of new technologies as tools for efficiency and accuracy. This approach starts in preconstruction where the team develops a framework for realizing the owner and architect’s vision. Plant works collaboratively with the owner and design team to help identify and manage the budget, schedule, and construction methods using a number of programs including Assemble Systems.
BIM Use Case – The following case study explains how Plant is using Assemble during preconstruction to:
- Create accurate estimates
- Quickly evaluate design changes
- Collaborate in real-time
- Create 3D takeoff standards and templates for future projects
“Leveraging model data for quantification has resulted in significant cost and time saving. With the use of Assemble, our takeoff time has decreased by up to 40%.”
