Field Automated Communication Systems Project Controller™ Reduces Duplication, Improves Accuracy on $22 Million Road Widening Project in Florida

  • February 28, 2011

Field Automated Communication Systems, LLC (FACS) today announced that its mobile construction project management software, FACSProject Controller, is reducing duplication of efforts, improving accuracy and allowing for greater collaboration of team members on Phase III of the Hillsborough County (Florida) Boyette Road Widening Project.

The Boyette Road Widening Project was divided into three Phases, Phase I & II are complete. Phase III roadway construction was started in August, 2010 and will cost $22,373,614.00. Boyette Road is a two lane road containing a mixture of commercial and residential uses. Due to the increase of residents into the area and due to continued development along the corridor, Boyette Road has become congested resulting in traffic delays.

The segment from McMullen Road to Bell Shoals Road is being widened from the existing two lane road to a four lane divided highway with varied landscaped medians. It will also include bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the road as well as bus bays where appropriate. The project is estimated to be completed in February, 2014.

“We chose FACS in a proactive effort to improve overall project efficiencies,” said Jon-Paul Lavandeira, Project Controls and Scheduler for Hillsborough County Public Works. “Our goal is to reduce duplicative efforts, increase accuracy, and enhance the interface between the County and Private Contractors. With FACS Project Controller we have been able to move away from paper-based processes to improve collaboration, payments and schedule management. It’s working and we’re already seeing the value of FACS Project Controller. I’m confident that the Boyette Road Widening Project will be kept on-time and on-budget in large part due to our use of FACS Project Controller.”

FACS Project Controller is truly mobile construction project management softwarespecifically designed to improve project delivery by enabling electronic field-to-office collaboration, communication and project management. FACS Project Controller is a cost effective Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution designed specifically to eliminate paper-based delays and increase collaboration of project teams in the field and office – two of the biggest contributors to cost overruns and project delays.

“We’re very pleased that Hillsborough County is seeing such immediate and impactful results from their use of FACS Project Controller,” said Daryn Reif, CEO of Field Automated Communication Systems. “The Boyette Road Widening Project is a good example of how a centralized, Web-based construction project management system can quickly improve efficiencies by reducing the delays of working from out-of-date, paper-based project documents.”
