Build high-performing projects with Aconex
A center for cancer research. A children's hospital. An addition to the local college. These projects change lives in the communities they serve. But delivering a high performance facility—one offering the greatest economic, environmental and social benefits—requires not just an outstanding project team but also exceptional levels of collaboration. That’s where Aconex comes in. For more than a decade, we’ve been helping health and education projects evolve from drawings and designs to community cornerstones.
One platform for the entire project
Built to scale
Education and health projects typically involve dozens of organizations, hundreds of people and hundreds of thousands of documents and messages. With Aconex you can manage large amounts of data without a second thought.
Keep everyone informed
Access to the right information at the right time can be a challenge. Aconex keeps track of who has the right to see which document and provides secure access anytime, anywhere through a web browser and mobile apps.
Perfect for PPPs and JVs
Aconex supports the intricate information flows, reviews and approvals that are necessary to meet project timelines and keep all parties informed and accountable, regardless of project structure.
Mitigate future risk by improving accuracy during design and construction and by capturing every document and decision to support operations and maintenance down the road.
The ABCs of better processes
A shorter, easier bidding process
Replace traditional methods of gathering bids via email, courier or FTP sites with an electronic process that eliminates last-minute printing, collating and mailing and is compatible with any file format.
Agree on review and workflow steps in advance and then implement them in Aconex. Eliminate skipped steps and missed milestones across the team.
More efficient drawing reviews
Shave hours off of drawing review cycles by eliminating manual steps, such as uploading individual documents.
Turnaround RFIs faster
Standardise the RFI process on Aconex for faster response times, trend tracking and status reporting through visual dashboards.
Improved information management
Automated document control
Register a document once and rely on Aconex to track all subsequent versions so no one ever works with an outdated design, drawing or BIM model.
Built-in data compliance
Electronic copies of all documentation are easily created to meet compliance requirements by simply tagging documents, drawings, etc., making them easy to share with auditors.
Better stakeholder communication
Use Aconex mail to keep everyone abreast of what’s happening on the project, knowing that no messages can be deleted or misplaced.
Google-like search lets project members find information fast and retrieve documents quickly on the go.
The Aconex advantage
The Graham Group delivered an expansion of Kelowna General Hospital in British Columbia seven months early thanks to more efficient processes implemented in Aconex.
Simplified facility handover
Tag drawings and other documents when they are first uploaded to Aconex. Later, run a simple “handover” search to compile final documentation.
World-class information security
Aconex conforms to the highest security standards and undergoes regular external audits.
Claims management, minimized
Reduce the need for change orders and head off future disputes by making sure sub-trades are working from the correct version of a project design.
