Hurricane Irma, 2017’s second most powerful storm, formed in the Atlantic, and forecasters warned that it would impact northern Florida. The Miller Electric team used Navisworks and Autodesk Build planning tools to accelerate the fabrication, delivery, and installation of some materials. They installed key pieces prior to securing the construction site. And juggled the schedule to postpone delivery of other portions.
“We were able to adjust our schedule and all the many dependencies quickly,” Creel says. “ Collaborating in the cloud helped us communicate with the whole team. When Irma flooded much of downtown Jacksonville, we were ready to stop work and start again without missing a step.”
