A digital transformation success story to BIM and beyond: JCB Construction Canada's journey from implement Autodesk Revit to adopting Autodesk Construction Cloud.
Founded in 1985, JCB Construction Canada has known incredible growth. From humble beginnings managing and executing private construction, renovation, and interior fit-up projects, they have carved themselves a very enviable place among the country’s best general contractors by staying focussed on customer satisfaction and striving to continuously improve their practices and work methods.
Today, with the combined expertise of 115+ employees, JCB now manages and builds medium- to large-scale projects from coast to coast, which include commercial and industrial development, institutional and multi-residential buildings.
From their offices located on the South Shore of Montreal (Québec), in Toronto (Ontario) and St. John’s (Newfoundland), JCB carries out hundreds of projects annually, for clients across the nation.
Challenge: Optimizing communication between headquarters, local offices, construction sites and project stakeholders in Design-Build projects to stay on time and on budget.
Hitting it off with members of the Graitec BIMup team at a Construction industry event in 2018, JCB associates readily shared their vision of technology, how it contributed to their growth, but also how disruptive it could be.
Through subsequent conversations, Graitec’s construction industry specialists learned more about JCB’s current workflows and top to bottom business issues. JCB absolutely knew that BIM was the future. They knew that, as a Design-Build company, they could benefit from a BIM workflow, but they needed help planning for their digital transformation and getting started the right way.
In this situation, Graitec proposed the full consulting and services package to proceed with:
1. Audit, needs assessment, and recommendations
2. Implementation plan for Autodesk Revit
3. Help with standards and families creation
4. Training for all types of users
5. Technical support for users and BIM managers
6. Assistance with Autodesk Construction Cloud solutions such as Build, BIM Collaborate, Docs
