Solutions for Construction Management

The model for tracking construction projects has changed dramatically over the past several years. The increased use of Design Build as the preferred project delivery vehicle has required the contractor to become more proactive by looking further down the road than in the past. This new requirement has rendered most of the time proven methods inadequate.

The Solution

By using various reports such as Daily Projects, Advance Notices and Awarded Contract Reports, IMS gives the contractor the ability to develop project opportunities at the same time as engineers and architects. The extensive website database allows the contractor another resource for long range planning. These tools are essential when pursuing public-sector Design Build projects. The IMS “advance research” approach along with tailored Target Markets, Disciplines and Geographic Regions allows a contractor the needed flexibility to stay ahead of the curve.
