          Shelley and Dominick Armato

          Shelley is the Founder and CEO of MySmartPlans. Her husband Dominick is Co-founder and President. They suffered firsthand the effects of chaos in the industry. Dominick, a 45-year contractor, was wildly successful and one project with insufficient data caused them to shut the doors on that company. But they rose again and reinvented the construction industry by streamlining the business.

          MySmartPlans is a software-as-a-service solution with an experienced digital information librarian as part of your team, who creates transparency, organization, and efficiency in construction projects. They are the driving force behind Data Governance, which mitigates the risk associated with insufficient document oversight. MySmartPlans has been improving the industry for 16 years and has a revenue aggregate of over 19 billion dollars. Build on time, on schedule, and with audited as pre-discovery files that are proven to prevent litigation!

          MySmartPlans has saved thousands of hours in costly rework and has allowed us to collaborate with our team members in the most efficient manner possible.

          Craig Childers

          MySmartPlans helped us focus on the project rather than collection of data & documentation. The MSP team knows what needs to be included and does a great job gathering, managing and ensure timey responses on required information. It also gives us a centralized location for project documentation, giving us comfort of knowing where to find information in the future. MSP allows us to work smarter and be smarter.

          Technology has made promises over the years that someday we would all be paperless and all electronic, but there has been a missing link in sharing information between groups. MySmartPlans is the medium that fills that gap.

          Rick Thompson

          As a construction litigator…to be able to point and click and find the documentation that relates to that specific change order, whatever, in seconds as opposed to days or weeks manually would be a game changer.

Connecting the Dots Within Your Airport’s Master Plan

Identifying the needs of the air transportation market can be like hitting a moving target, and once you’ve concluded your studies you’re left with a hefty development plan for your airport. Ensuring that the funds allocated are going as far as possible is crucial – very few can afford to incur costly change orders and unforeseen circumstances.

So how do we mitigate these risks and make sense of this endeavor? Whether you’re going CMAR, Design-Bid-Build, or Design/Build, bringing best-in-class consultants and technology to the table can drastically improve the end result of your Master Plan, as well as your construction and facilities team’s quality of life throughout the process.

Let’s break this down into a few actionable items:

1. Treat your Master Plan’s entire scope of work like individual projects, or runs of construction

This is one area where the construction world can learn from the agile methodology adopted by a lot of web development firms. Let’s take a ground-up terminal build for example This effort will require new infrastructure, utilities, parking, the terminal itself, and more. So label each of those pieces of the puzzle with its own project nomenclature (bid package, building number, project number, etc.) and focus on driving these individual projects to substantial completion. This creates measurable milestones for your team and surrounding communities as opposed to a seemingly never-ending cycle of construction. This can also be tremendously helpful on the cost-tracking side of your program.

2. Develop closeout standards prior to beginning construction

Construction is a crucial step in completing your master plan. But you also need all the information captured during this process delivered to your facilities staff in a comprehensive and effective manner. In order to help ensure data is readily accessible upon substantial completion, it’s important to have conversations and written language surrounding what your organization expects. If you need help with contract work or written materials, our staff has examples and can help you get these standards embedded into your project specifications.

3. Bring on the right consultants and utilize effective technology

When you go out to bid on consultants and tech, you can rest assured that a LONG line of vendors is going to greet you at your front door. The best way to respond to their inquiries is “show me.” – a comprehensive RFP process. This will quickly weed out those vendors that will leave you with a Master Plan that’s doubled in cost and schedule. Choose vendors that clearly understand your goals and have a genuine desire to help you meet them! This can include choosing a project delivery method that can better drive the timeline and budget your organization has allocated.

So where does our team fit into the puzzle? We bring best-in-class technology that allows every key team member involved in your Master Plan to come to one central location for current, accurate information. We’ll help you build bridges to other software being implemented and find the best way to capture your data. The best part? We do all of the bridge building and data capture for you – a level of service unmatched and unheard of in the market.
