When planning a construction project, thoroughness is as important as flexibility: The Online Planning Tool not only helps you find the right solutions for your project quickly and easily, but also adjusts flexibly to changing project requirements and provides you with crucial information along each step of the project-planning process.
Studies and surveys keep highlighting the fact that carefully planned construction projects result in a significant reduction of the overall risks involved – particularly with regard to selection of the right product or products. Throughout, the planning of construction projects involves a two-fold challenge: Not losing sight of the details amidst the many complexities any construction project entails while, at the same time, scanning an often all-too-crowded marketplace for the best products and technologies.
Online planning - fast, easy and smart
This is where the Online Planning Tool by Master Builders Solutions steps in. This digital helper saves time, is easy to use, and provides effective and efficient support, particularly during the planning stage of a construction project. The tool provides architects and engineers, among others, with a straightforward means to enter specific project data and, in three simple steps, receive the specifications of the solution suited to their scenarios, complete with required quantities of the product and flexibly adjustable to a variety of requirement profiles such as durability or quick installation. Each of the simulations can be saved individually and reopened and modified as needed – enabling users to respond quickly and flexibly to changing requirements or specifications. The tool is available in local languages in 10 European countries, as well as in English.
Embraced by users - new add-ons available shortly
“The tool is already successfully used in real-life practical application”, reports Elisabeth Casas Bolivar, Project Manager and responsible for conceptual development of the Online Planning Tool. “In Spain, for instance, a number of engineering firms have been making very active use of the tool for some time now, and in Italy, Poland and Germany the Online Planning Tool is currently supporting the design stage of infrastructure projects in the water-management sector.” Casas Bolivar says that feedback has been positive throughout: “Our customers praise the straightforward download process for the specific project documentation and pricing information they require, for instance.” And she adds that the capabilities of the Online Planning Tool will be augmented successively to include new areas of application: “While at the moment the tool primarily supports water-infrastructure projects, in some countries additional areas, such as secondary containment or road repair and maintenance, have already been implemented. Shortly, additional scenarios – solutions for roofs or a variety of industrial applications – will be made available”.
The Online Planning Tool - it only takes 3 steps to find the right solution:
Detailed information, customized on the go
Technical data sheets, specification documents, declarations of performance, certificates, BIM-objects, as well as, where available, relevant reference projects and videos supplement the available data. With a single click, product and application pricing information can be requested, and the project report is compiled and immediately made available for download. Another advantage of the Online Planning Tool: It is available free-of-charge and can be used anytime, anywhere – on desktop computers as well as on mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones. Whether at the office or on the construction site: The project report can be accessed whenever required, and quickly modified to reflect any new requirements as they arise.
