Since day one, the Burns & McDonnell’s mission has been clear and consistent — to make its clients successful. Burns & McDonnell, a full-service engineering, architecture, construction, environmental and consulting solutions firm, deploys teams all over the world to plan, design, permit, construct and manage facilities. Their Strategic Initiatives team contributes to their mission of client success by implementing processes and technology throughout the company that help project teams streamline project execution.

The vision of this team is to help deliver a fully integrated project lifecycle, where data is created once, and as a project progresses, it automatically flows to users when they need it. To carry out that vision, the Strategic Initiatives team began implementing technology pillars to reduce the number of software systems supported and used by the workforce.

To be a technology pillar at Burns & McDonnell, a software needs to have the flexibility and usability to work across the entire enterprise. It also needs to be scalable so the system can grow as business needs evolve. Burns & McDonnell views technology pillars as long-term investments, allowing them to leverage integration, eliminate siloed tools and avoid the pain of replacing software systems every few years.

Prior to implementing a pillar technology for project controls, Burns & McDonnell had an existing project controls system that was failing due to lack of functionality, inability to scale and difficulty of use. After pushback from end users, the Strategic Initiatives team began to search for a replacement solution.

Burns & McDonnell decided to partner with Hexagon’s Asset Lifecycle Intelligence division to make EcoSys™ the pillar technology for enterprise project controls because of its configurability, flexibility and ease of use. Today, all project teams use EcoSys as the front end to the ERP system to take advantage of its more familiar and functional user interface.
