The construction engineer at Dansk Boligbyg, Sebastian Busk Andersen, is currently working on a large construction project in Christiansbjerg, Aarhus, called “Nabolaget” (engl. the neighborhood). To plan the project, he used the Vico Schedule Planner program to plan in a new way but had problems implementing the method.
A new time for the construction industry
The construction industry is very traditional, and you do what you are used to. But that no longer fits into a society that has become extremely digital. This is something that helps building-designers who are interested in new technologies – such as Sebastian – to change.
On a construction site, many things happen, for example who is where and when. It’s not always easy to figure out if you have a clear plan for it. This is e.g. one reason why Sebastian uses the Vico Schedule Planner instead of the traditional Gantt plans, as this provides a clearer plan.
With the Vico Schedule Planner you not only plan when you work, but also where. In this way, there is not suddenly a craftsman and an electrician in the same room, while nobody is on another floor.
