Kingfish Maine Enhances Project Collaboration Using Autodesk Build/BIM 360 Build
Kingfish Maine is a vertically integrated and technology-driven aquaculture leader in the sustainable production of premium marine seafood. As a designer, builder, and operator of state-of-the-art facilities, leveraging Autodesk Revit and other BIM technology tools has improved the workflow between designers and the construction arm. Kingfish Maine was looking to improve the process in the areas of project and file management.
Kingfish Maine is preparing to hire a large number of contractors to develop their Maine facilities. This endeavor will require significant coordination from design to construction to perform a flawless project execution at no excess in budget and project delay. Kingfish Maine needs to overcome issues such as lack of familiarity with the tool by the construction team and adapting to a new folder structure for cloud files.
Kingfish Maine has been able to overcome the challenges by training team members on the usage and implementation on a day-to-day basis of Autodesk Build/BIM 360 Build. By optimizing the file structure, and continuing to train construction staff on important aspects of the process such as file access, notifications management for RFI's and issues management, Kingfish Maine is well on its way to achieving its long-term vision: to have all internal stakeholders at Kingfish Maine and external consultants become acquainted with BIM and cloud technologies, from the workflow to the overall business value of full BIM enablement.
By acquiring and implementing Autodesk Build/BIM 360 Build’s project and file management solutions, the company has improved the collaboration workflow between the field and the office. While benefits are difficult to quantify, Kingfish is reporting less loss of data which is leading to a much smoother workflow between stakeholders.
Kingfish uses Autodesk software and works closely with Microsol Resources for insights, licenses, and technical support. Autodesk Build/BIM 360 Build are proving to be great tools for Kingfish, and expect that the benefits will continue to increase as they implement more of its functionality into our daily workflows.
