(BUILT)X Solutions - The Short Definition

The concept of (BUILT)X SolutionsTM is broader than the (BUILT)X SystemTM, the project specific program that supports delivery of BIM enabled facilities and infrastructure by integrated teams.

(BUILT)X SolutionsTM contemplates the intelligent, comprehensive and integrated use of an array of innovative tools and processes.  These include, but are not limited to, integrated procurement programs, IPP in 3DTM, integrated project delivery, IPD in 3DTM, integrated operations and maintenance, IOM in 3DTM  and cultural, construction and change management modeling, (CM)X in 3DTM programs.

If you were to imagine (BUILT)X SolutionsTM as a self contained program the support structure might look something like the image below, with the (SMART)Legal Agreements supporting and enabling IPP, IPD, and IOM.


If, instead, you imagine (BUILT)X SolutionsTM as an aqua duct delivering information over time the image below might better capture the concept.  In this image the series of arches that support the aqua duct represent IPP, IPD, IOM and many other innovative solutions in the built industry like lean construction, lean supply chain management, lean logistics, innovative procurement, etc. etc.

Regardless of how (BUILT)X SolutionsTM is conceptualized institutional consumers - both public and private - of planning, design, construction, operations and maintenance services must begin grappling with the concepts that underlie and support the concept.  The Information Age is maturing rapidly and the emerging Knowledge Economy is quickly rendering many Industrial Age business models obsolete.  Don't get left behind!

Sponsoring, or at a minimum participating in, Collaborative Construction's (SMART)XGame Changer Series is a great place to start.
