Trimble Buildings Case Study: Klorman Construction and the LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal

 

What does it take to build a successful construction firm today?  In one man’s experience – a lot of grit, a lot of drive, sometimes sticking your neck out, and an ongoing commitment to the best technologies. In this Fridays with Trimble webinar, we’ll take a look at Klorman Construction, one of the largest concrete contractors in the US, and their evolution as a high tech construction firm.

 

In particular, we’ll examine how Klorman used Trimble technologies to differentiate themselves during the bid, construction, and delivery of the new Los Angeles Airport Tom Bradley International Terminal.  This 7-story terminal, a composite structural concrete and structural steel design, is over 665,000 square feet and will be delivered later this summer. The project has benefitted significantly from Klorman’s use of Trimble construction solutions.

Klorman Construction has long been known as a cutting-edge contractor.  The team has always been at the forefront of new technologies and standardizing their company on the best platforms. This legacy goes back to computerized project controls in 1981, to CADD in 1986, and Windows in 1996. So it should come as no surprise that Klorman recognized Trimble solutions as best-in-breed for structural steel and concrete modeling and coordination (Tekla Structures and Tekla BIMsight), mobile collaboration with construction project management (Prolog), Robotic Total Stations for layout (Trimble), 3D laser scanning for as-built conditions (Trimble), and BIM-based estimating and scheduling (Vico Office).

 

Throughout the case study, Klorman will highlight actual project ROI, including how:

  • • Use of Prolog reduced the average management time per project per week
      by approximately 160 hours. This allowed management and supervisors to
      spend 35% more time in the field.
  • • Use of Tekla models increased off-site prefabrication by 30%.
  • • Use of Tekla BIMsight caught plan change early enough to avoid $350,000
      with structural steel and cast-in-place concrete.
  • • Use of Vico Office reduced estimating time by 8 hours per iteration while
      accuracy increased by 3%; production control helped deliver project
      5% faster.
  • • Use of Robotic Total Stations reduced the layout costs by 50% and reduced
      the cost or rework for tolerance issues by 80%.
  • • Use of 3D Laser Scanning and as-built model identified and solved $100,000
      issue and provided as-is documentation.

 

Together we’ll learn how Klorman standardized on these Trimble solutions and what it means in terms of data flow, decision making, efficiency, and productivity.  Plus, you will have the opportunity to ask questions of the Klorman team: are project more predictable? Has risk been elevated or removed? Do you need a special workforce? How do you balance IT with the science and art of building?

 

Everyone on your pursuit, precon, and operations teams will want to see this, especially if you want to:

  • • Develop more efficiencies for your own self-perform divisions;
  • • Develop owner deliverables that really matter;
  • • Efficiently track change orders (268 approved on this project as of 12/31/12,
      potential change orders (approximately 900), emails (approximately 93,000),
      submittals, inspections, and punchlists at headquarters, in the trailer, and on the jobsite;
  • • How to proactively layout and control the work for as-built versus as-planned;
  • • See what a “handover BIM” looks like and how it will be used by the facilities engineers.
