Kitchell’s Secret Weapon: Ideation Lab

In an ever-evolving building industry, new tools and innovations happen almost daily. We are constantly evaluating new methods, approaches and ways of doing business to help our clients and their projects move through the pipeline faster, from ideas that save millions of dollars in design and change order fees to value engineering that achieves an owner’s vision within budget. Concepts percolating in our Ideation Lab right now:

  • 3D printing capabilities of modularization for healthcare projects.
  • A comprehensive facilities Operations & Maintenance package, including an online interactive dashboard enabling owners to pull up a drawing, click on an icon to see an exact area in the model and click on the on the equipment to see product data, warranty, contacts, etc. All in 3D.
  • Optimization of the iCloud so all relevant information including video, models, budgets, worker status, etc. is effortlessly accessible to all stakeholders on any device.
  • The ultimate user-friendly online portal for owners to quickly pull-up information that matters to them most — without having to navigate unwieldy special software.
  • Maximum optimization of DProfiler, a “macro” BIM solution used in the planning and conceptual design phases to produce an accurate, simultaneous cost estimate of a proposed design.
