A new Danish study shows how the use of a shared digital management and communication platform on large-scale construction projects leads to considerable cost reductions.

The Danish Building Research Institute conducted a six-month research project that studied the effects of using a specific IT concept during construction. The three case studies were:

1. The Maersk Tower, a 15-story, 42,700-square-meter extension to the Panum complex.
2. The Niels Bohr Building, a 52,000-square-meter new laboratory and academic building.
3. The Danish Defence’s Property Agency’s construction project portfolio (FES).

Each of them used GenieBelt as the shared IT platform. It was used for the progress management of a construction project portfolio, management of construction activities, and communication between the construction management team and contractors.
