How to Reduce Waste with Cloud-Based Construction Management the Stamhuis Way

Founded in 1926, Stamhuis is a specialty retail shop construction and renovation company with a reputation for quality and dependability. They work closely with their clients to create custom solutions tailored to get the most out of their retail spaces. By implementing BIM 360 within Autodesk Construction Cloud™ for cloud-based construction management, Stamhuis reduced design and construction errors by 15% and improved efficiency by 10%.

How to Solve Production Errors with the Collaborative Power of Cloud-Based Construction Data Management

Stamhuis’ primary focus has always been on shopfitting, with additional planning and project management services available. The complex business of outfitting (or up-fitting) retail spaces requires intense attention to detail. Stamhuis takes pride in its ability to plan and organise these projects in seamless collaboration with clients.

As the market tightened and became increasingly competitive, the team at Stamhuis knew they would need innovative solutions for reducing waste while increasing efficiency and quality. This realisation led the team to turn to software-driven solutions to create the Stamhuis Total Concept (STC) - not just a service but an ethos that they offer their customers. The STC enables Stamhuis to create a convergence between AEC and manufacturing in one company, from concept, design, and engineering to manufacturing, preassembly, installation, and maintenance.

The Benefits of Standardising Workflows with BIM 360

The STC relies on the power of cloud-based construction management to centralise project data. The team selected BIM 360 as the best option to enable a connected digital workflow, forming the central link for all disciplines across the project lifecycle.

This standardised workflow helps Stamhuis achieve high scalability by integrating people and resources, ensuring a competitive advantage. It enables a continuous process of learning and improving to build better, faster, and cheaper. It also allows them to promise a one-week turnaround on their shopfitting process, minimising their customers’ downtime.

Reinvesting: A Look to the Future

Implementing BIM 360 into their process resulted in a 15% reduction in design and construction mistakes over three years. It also led to a 10% efficiency gain due to improved project team collaboration. BIM 360 additionally simplifies communication and documentation.

Following their initial success, Stamhuis will expand its use of cloud-based construction management to increase its quality and value in the coming years. The templates they create within BIM 360 allow them to copy projects easily and reuse project settings to scale benefits across projects and years.

With BIM 360, Stamhuis, their partners, and clients benefit from easy access to project information. They are projecting an ROI improvement of 10% each year.

“Stamhuis is looking to have more synergy advantages by the “data at the centre” strategy. This is our mutual goal with Autodesk. We will continue to integrate all our different disciplines to work with the same data. From concept design to engineering and fabrication, we will try to merge workflows and combine construction software to a fully integrated and converged workspace.”
