Digital Construction as a Top Value to Reach Project Quality
MR Group has been successfully operating in the property development market since 2003. The company is a leader in residential and commercial development. Its portfolio includes 50 projects with total area more than 7M m². The company has received plenty of honorable professional awards.
Since 2016, MR Group has been actively using BIM technology at all project lifecycle stages. After implementation of Employer’s Information Requirements (EIR) for design contractors, MR Group brings all advantages of digital technologies directly to the construction sites.
There is no doubt that construction is one of the most conservative industries. Any process adjustments are always facing with shifting in vision. MR Group is a dynamic company: it constantly searches, tests, and implements solutions that increase its efficiency and provide technology advantage. MR Group’s unique and solid product developed with high architectural standard, proper quality and delivered in time is a key factor for the company’s success. It becomes impossible without implementing building information modeling, digital construction and control tools.
"Our priorities are construction process control and optimization", Alex Obukhov, CEO of MR Group, notes. "The real estate developer wants to control scopes and schedule against the business plan considering the real situation on the construction site."
MR Group should use a regularly updated BIM model at all stages: design — construction—operation. The final task is to have a digital twin of the asset as a result of design and construction participants collaboration in a common data environment.
The first step was to develop unified digital information standards for its contractors. The next essential step was to choose the software that would help increase the efficiency of processes at the construction site using the available design data. At the same time, digital control should bring needed transparency.
MR Group chose Autodesk Service Provider SIGNAX for BIM 360 and Autodesk Construction Cloud implementation.
SIGNAX is a portfolio of digital products based on BIM. It increases project management efficiency in construction and provides all participants with identical, objective, and real-time information of the scopes, scheduling, cost, quality and construction risks.
MR Group has launched 3 projects using SIGNAX products. The project participants tested SIGNAX solutions in their daily activities on the construction sites.
They highlighted quick implementation and an easy-to-use experience. They also admitted the construction efficiency increase; project control acceleration; cost and labor savings due to digital document flow.
SIGNAX DASHBOARD module has become a unified reporting standard for all Customers' construction projects. MR Group’s management receives actual construction data for all project stakeholders in real-time mode.
SIGNAX services have allowed us to shorten the time of inspections and site work acceptance by 2 times, the number of construction site visits has decreased by 4 times.
"SIGNAX experts took into account our expectations while adopting the product. In addition, they helped improve our business processes, trained our team and quickly implemented pilot projects. As a result, we plan to bring SIGNAX to all MR Group projects in 2022," added Alex Obukhov.
"Thanks to SIGNAX and the Autodesk Docs common data environment, all construction participants (contractors, designers, consultants) have unified and transparent information on any mobile device online. It allows us to follow the project progress and be sure of the final result," summed up Alex Obukhov.
MR Group is sure that digital transformation of construction processes and the formation of a building digital twin for Stage Operation are the key drivers for success of the Real Estate development business.
