Project 7 and Touchplan Form Collaboration to address Imbalance in Construction Productivity

New alliance to address the Construction Productivity Gap and transform global Infrastructure delivery

(FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Boston, MA 1/13/22) Project7, a leading Lean transformation & leadership consultancy, and Touchplan, an award-winning collaborative construction planning software, today announced a partnership to work together to collaboratively challenge the performance culture within the construction industry and address the imbalance in construction productivity.

Construction teams rarely reach the pinnacles of high performance, and comparing construction job sites to well-drilled, progressive, and flowing manufacturing production lines, we all recognize the work the industry has in front of it. Addressing the imbalance of productivity requires unique innovation and experienced voices. With Touchplan and Project7 combined, the two can provide a holistic software and professional service solution to Infrastructure clients globally.

“Our whole purpose at Project7 is to get ordinary people operating to robust processes and delivering extraordinary performance, and by partnering with Touchplan, we are uniquely positioned to embed this mindset within the Infrastructure market,” said Dan Shakespeare, Infrastructure Market Lead at Project7. “We are in a privileged position to be the custodians of Lean in the 21st Century and must work tirelessly to ensure that Lean principles play their part in the transformation of the construction industry, and by working closely with Touchplan, we can carry out that duty and responsibility”.

According to the book Flatlined by Mark C. Deluzio, 98% of ‘Lean Transformations’ either fail or do not achieve the desired results. The partnership between Touchplan and Project7 will help organizations bridge the productivity gap and embrace digital technology to enhance performance. The Touchplan/Project 7 collaboration can protect their investment through robust implementation and application of the underpinning principles of Lean, coupled with our vast experience in implementing methodologies like The Last Planner System, Takt Planning [Line Balance], and Performance Management Systems.

We are excited to connect our clients with Touchplan’s performance insights and inspire Leaders and Site Teams to use this data to collaborate, challenge one another and create improvements to drive greater productivity and marginal performance gains.

“Working with consulting firms like Project 7 is an exciting proposition,” said Jimmy Suppelsa, Chief Revenue Officer for Touchplan.  “We have a tool based on a process that is proven to improve project performance, and they have the roadmap to help teams implement technology and processes.  It’s a win-win-win for us, Project7, and our mutual clients.”

Touchplan & Oculo form Technology/Marketing Partnership

11/15/2021

New alliance to assess workflow and reality capture

LONDON, ENGLAND, and BOSTON, MA, (November 15, 2021) – Oculo, a leading AI and deep-tech company, and Touchplan, an award-winning collaborative construction planning software, today announced a partnership to work together to assess a workflow that combines lookahead planning with reality capture.

Communication, especially from those who make plans to the field, is frequently a pain point.  Touchplan and Oculo feel that this can largely be resolved by using comprehensive, shared, and up-to-date visual documentation of the jobsite, allowing construction teams to be concise, precise, and get the weekly plan to the lowest level.

“Our goal is to take the 20,000 foot-view from which most project managers see the jobsite and get it down to the lowest level,” said Jason Barrington-Hines, Operations & Growth Manager at Oculo. “All parties should be able to have the same information available to them to understand the macro workings of the job from any location, and our tech combined with Touchplan can help achieve that.”

The partnership between Touchplan and Oculo will allow visual documentation to be used proactively; to feed into dynamic scheduling, and to align all members of the project team. Planning sessions can become virtual rehearsals, where all members of the team can visualize what needs to be done next, and remote team members can also contribute. This creates a jobsite where obstacles are avoided, responsibilities are clear, and constraints are less of an issue. Owners and architects can have data-driven conversations with contractors and collaborate openly.

Touchplan Technology Partnership Manager Andrew Piland added, “Touchplan prides itself on being an innovative partner for our customers. We adapt the technology to their processes and are truly a customer-driven solution. Partnering with Oculo makes Touchplan better because it gives us an edge over simply being a stand-alone solution.”

###

About Oculo

Oculo leverages the power of advanced computer vision and machine learning to create a virtual copy of any construction site that is regularly updated and can be accessed online from anywhere in the world. This removes the need for teams and stakeholders to be onsite to make a decision or get things done, transforms workflows, and effortlessly creates comprehensive visual as-built documentation. The outcome of which is increased productivity at the site level, a powerful weapon to defend against claims, and visual history of the project, which will pay dividends throughout the lifetime of the asset.
