PROJECT SPOTLIGHT ON J.H. FINDORFF & SON INC.
Using FinishLine as an organizational tool to save time and money
- 496,000-square-foot healthcare campus
- 42-acre site in Madison, Wisconsin
“(we used FinishLine) as a database for storing all the information, assigning responsibility and tracking the issues for close out.”
“Robert (FinishLine President) and his team were very willing to help us customize anytime we asked.”
Before using FinishLine, paper checklists and other posted checklists along with spreadsheets were commonly used. Quality logs in spreadsheets weren’t tied into subcontractors’ email, it took additional time to distribute reports. In the past, using paper checklists would be floating around and could get lost from time to time. FinishLine’s electronic checklists and reporting system solved these problems, as the team reduced errors since there was no longer missing information.
Larry mentioned that FinishLine was “very customizable.” He explained, “Robert (FinishLine President) and his team were very willing to help us customize anytime we asked.” Larry and his team were able to customize checklists and reports as needed through the duration of the project.
Time was saved in a number of ways, by storing and tracking deficiency data with ease, eliminating paper checklists, and distributing reports via email. Larry said that "it is very hard to estimate the savings a software has on a construction project, but FinishLine definitely saved the team time and dollars by having a very efficient platform for managing quality on the the project." The completed project campus included 11 operating rooms, a 56-bed hospital, a cardiology clinic, emergency and urgent care services, a training area for athletes, clinic exam rooms, in addition to a physical and occupational therapy area.
