useful tool is the Newforma® Project Center, a web-based project management software tool that stores all communication, document distribution, and review processes in one place. Newforma played a key role in two recent projects at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee: the West Village residence hall and the renovation and expansion of the Catherine Burrow Refectory. “Newforma Project Center has emerged at Rhodes not only as a wonderful project management tool,” says Brian Foshee, director of the physical plant, “But I think more importantly Newforma Project Center has improved the path to access project knowledge. The system permits the project team to stay informed and updated in all aspects of the project, without repetitive or duplicate work. A well-informed

project team is a more efficient team, which will result in positive project outcomes.” Technology has also made possible drastic improvements over the traditional blueprints. Many software programs such as Autodesk’s Revit®, MicroStation by Bentley Corp., and ArchiCAD® by Graphisoft Corp., are available, and each have their pros and cons. One obvious advantage for construction projects is that the software detects conflicts in the plans, such as the mechanical engineer drawing ductwork in the same location where the structural engineer has drawn beams. Identifying these issues early can resolve conflicts before they become expensive and time-consuming in the field. Additionally, the entire project’s information is stored in this

model, from materials specifications to quantities and properties of all building components, making it helpful for institutions in maintaining buildings over time. No matter how much technology changes the way people work, the value of good process and communication becomes even more essential. The technology only enhances those processes; it does not replace them. ts
