Eyrus Releases Case Study with CAM Construction on Baltimore City School Project
CASE STUDY: CAM Construction Teams Up with Eyrus for Compliance and Visibility on Bay-Brook Elementary/Middle School
Eyrus recently published the above Case Study, showcasing our Bay Brook Elementary/Middle School project. Our teams joined forces to develop a site-specific solution as this project had strict OCIP & Workforce Development requirements, and we were presented with an issue on how to efficiently capture and report data related to the project’s on-site personnel.
During pre-construction, we sat down with the eyrus team to develop a solution that automated our reporting process. This generated an efficiency gain to our field staff and allowed the owner/project team to access real-time data through an ad-hoc reporting platform.
Within our initial site/safety briefings, all personnel entering the site were registered and uploaded into the system.
Below is a link to the case study and an excerpt showcasing the benefits to real-time data and how it can assist with compliance, visibility, and efficiency.
“The Eyrus platform was the database for CAM’s personnel tracking and the daily/weekly comparison reports allowed our team to produce the necessary compliance records for the project’s Owner Controlled Insurance Program requirements,” states Mike Marshner with CAM Construction.
In addition, the CAM team streamlined workflows using real-time workforce data from Eyrus to support the on-time delivery of Bay-Brook Elementary/Middle School.
Holabird Elementary Middle School – Drone Update
A drone captured these pictures in August, showcasing the construction progress at Holabird Elementary Middle School in Baltimore, MD. Our team has been hard at work this summer and this project is tracking a LEED Platinum certification.
Holabird is a Net-Zero project featuring Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) wall construction and will be featured in one of our next updates. Learn more about how we can provide cost and time savings on your project, while meeting eco-friendly program goals.
Bay Brook Elementary Middle School – 6 Month Construction Time Lapse
This 6-month time lapse from February to August 2019, captures the construction of the new Bay Brook Elementary Middle School project.
CAM is currently the Construction Manager on the project, partnering with the Maryland Stadium Authority, Crabtree, Rohrbaugh & Associates, & 21st Century School Buildings Program.
Our team’s ability to meet an aggressive schedule and owner reporting requirements is showcased by the progress within the video.
During the Pre-Construction phase of the project, our team crafted specialized plans to ensure the success of the owner’s demands. CAM’s team ensured pricing and bid packaging through project specific definitions, to match the anticipated schedule and stay within the project scope.
Our team presented and executed an early hazmat/demolition package for the existing school, along with the complete sitework package so we could hit the ground running once the full budget appropriation was made and the final contract could be issued. All pricing and budgeting included a six-day work week which has been fulfilled to meet the aggressive schedule.
Construction Specific Software Solutions
Through the use of construction specific software, our field staff ensures that we remain compliant with the Owner Controlled Insurance Program (OCIP) & project reporting requirements. Our staff utilizes Eyrus software, which allows for the collection of live, real-time, project manpower data. CAM reviews the daily data to evaluate and ensure adequate manpower is provided at all times. This data populates live custom reports, assisting our field staff and management team’s efficiency and reporting accuracy.
CAM’s team implements this software with our sub-contractors during our initial project specific safety orientation. We use this time to train, upload, and begin our field administrative process. The project team has noticed that real-time data reporting and the ability to receive customized notifications, allow for valuable project cost & time savings.
