The New York City Department of Environmental Protection needed timely access to critical project information during the $2.4 billion upgrade of the city’s largest wastewater treatment plant. The construction management team implemented a Project Management Information System (PMIS), which allowed users to find details quickly by sorting through vast amounts of data.
As part of the PMIS, Malcolm Pirnie developed an information access system, including a project website that contained current project descriptions and statuses. Additionally, the Pirnie team built an electronic system to scan and route information to users. These tools decreased response time to contractors because they provided managers with the facts to make decisions swiftly and accurately, and let team members quickly route documents.
