EIC Activities’ Active 4D Planning process (A4DP), developed in partnership with CPB Contractors, is a breakthrough in Integrated Digital Delivery.
A4DP enables teams to collaboratively build a project’s program, directly from a 3D BIM model, from tender initiation.
Its automation feature reduces the time taken to develop a project schedule from days to hours. Generating the initial project program in 4D, much earlier in the tender process than current industry practice, helps teams to develop industry leading solutions.
Meet the drivers
Following a 3-year development phase, A4DP is now in use on a number of CPB Contractors projects and tenders.
Lead developers, EIC Activities Principal – Planning, Mark Chapman, and CPB Contractors Manager Planning and Controls, Chris Priestland, spoke about the solution’s features and benefits – and the building blocks behind its success.
