Streamlining Construction Procurement Activities Of A Real Estate Giant

Our Client

  • A leading real estate company based in the United States with projects in 6 other countries across the world.
  • With a strong presence in the market, the company specializes in residential, commercial, and industrial spaces.
  • The company has established a reputation for its expertise, years of trust, and commitment to residents’ satisfaction.

Problem Statement

  • The client faced challenges in tracking and analyzing delays in various construction procurement activities(Brickwork, Concrete Base, Decoration, Digging, Electrical Cabling, Plumbing & Insulation), leading to project timeline deviations and increased costs.
  • They needed insights into the performance of each stage in the construction procurement process to identify bottlenecks and improve overall efficiency.
  • They were struggling to find suitable real estate properties in the desired location due to limited supply, leading to high competition and inflated prices.
  • They were encountering difficulties in the unpredictable real estate market, making it difficult to make informed procurement decisions due to price and demand fluctuations.
  • They faced a lack of transparency in the real estate market, particularly in terms of property information, market data, and pricing trends, which hampers their ability to make well-informed procurement decisions.

Our Solution

To address the client’s challenges and provide actionable insights, our team developed a comprehensive Power BI analytics dashboard. This solution enabled effective delay analysis and stage analysis, facilitating data-driven decision-making throughout the project lifecycle.
Delay Analysis
    • Data Collection : We integrated the procurement data from various sources, including project management software, contractor reports, and site progress updates, to gather comprehensive delay-related information on the package status.
    • Visualization : We designed interactive dashboards in Power BI to visualize delay metrics such as estimated vs. actual timeline, reasons for delays, impact on critical paths, and resource allocation.
    • Root Cause Analysis : Our solution included drill-down capabilities to identify the root causes of delays, such as weather conditions, material shortages, or coordination issues, helping the client take appropriate corrective actions.
Stage Analysis
    • Data Integration : We integrated data from procurement systems, vendor performance records, and financial transactions to create a holistic view of each stage in the construction procurement process.
    • KPI Monitoring : We identified key performance indicators (KPIs) specific to each stage, such as float variance time, cost variance, quality metrics, and vendor performance ratings.
    • Performance Comparison : The real-time analytics dashboards facilitated a side-by-side comparison of different stages, highlighting areas of improvement and enabling the client to optimize resource allocation and procurement strategies.
    • Alerts and Notifications : We implemented automated alerts and notifications to notify project stakeholders about critical issues or deviations in performance, ensuring timely actions and reducing the impact of potential delays.
