Welcome to Agile Construction.
Grit combines the people-centric principles of Lean & Agile, the visualization ease of Building Information Modeling, and the computational power of advanced Artificial Intelligence. The result? Grit is something entirely new, providing the most detailed and responsive construction schedules ever.
Alright, enough with the buzzwords. Grit simply takes some of the best tools available and targets one ambition: To shorten overall construction timelines and to do it without the hundreds of duplicative forms, softwares, meetings and processes.
In other words:
Cut waste from your schedule while cutting waste from your scheduling.
Alright, why should you care?
We’ve been where you are: Trying to cut through the marketing fluff and find real solutions. grit is something completely new built upon the principles of construction. We targeted each stakeholder’s priorities, while eliminating the waste.
Grit adjusts durations off of actual events as opposed to a baseline durations tied to historical data from previous projects. It gives you a better understanding of what you’re up against.
Grit is doing a better job at integrating the field and office than other softwares. The field has a spot to report back. They have a brain dump in their pocket.
When we talk planning efforts, milestones, etc., versus the actual execution where you get down to week-to-week, those two worlds never really combine. There’s a huge gap. This is something I see Grit has a lot of potential to reshape. I would call them pushing the envelope of next-generation of 4D planning software.
Most solutions deliver 2D and try to put 3D on top of that when it is possible. Grit is coming from a 3D perspective, and coming back to 2D only when they really have to. It is a very well thought out tool, extremely purposeful beyond the aesthetic.
“With existing tools, you go into a project meeting doing a 3-week lookahead and afterwards, all those subs come together outside of the trailer and say ‘Well, that’s not going to happen.’ and then discuss the actual activities that will occur.”
