Join at Work:
65 stakeholders at the digital roundtable
When a massive project team, led by a general contractor joint venture, set out to construct a new hospital, it turned to Join. Seamless multi-stakeholder collaboration between architects, engineers, trade partners and owner representatives enabled trust to be built, budget targets to be met, and ensured a critical community asset was built with more consensus and less friction.
Project vision, realized
Join is more than a cost tool. It’s a decision support tool. It’s the ultimate teamwork catalyst, making true collaboration between design teams and contractors not only feasible, but fun. Utilizing dynamic info sharing devices such as drawings, comments, notes, analyses, alerts, Join creates a centralized, detailed knowledge base that designers can use to optimize costs and improve communication while maintaining the overall design vision.
- Streamline communication with key stakeholders
- Coordinate cost and design, with greater confidence
- Gain key insights into building case such as space constraints and regulatory considerations
