Web-based Solution is Designed for “Shovel Ready” Collaboration
March 24, 2009 -- Envista Corporation, a provider of web-based software for infrastructure project coordination, today announced Colorado Springs and Colorado Springs Utilities (CSU) are the newest adopters of Envista technology. Colorado Springs is the second-largest city in the state of Colorado with an estimated population of 407,000 living in an area of 195 square miles. Colorado Springs Utilities is a community-owned organization that provides natural gas, electricity, water and wastewater services to the Pikes Peak region. The municipality and utility will use Envista's software-as-a-service to manage hundreds of infrastructure construction and maintenance projects to be performed in the "Right of Way".
Currently, the City has over 700 roadway and storm drain projects displayed in Envista. CSU plans to add nearly 80 water, gas, electric, and sanitation projects to the repository as well. The City has large-scale "chip seal" and overlay paving programs scheduled for 2009 and beyond. Due to the high volume of projects and the need to reduce conflicts in the field, the use of Envista has received tremendous support from senior leadership in both City and Utilities staffs.
From the Colorado Springs Roadway Engineering Team and Streets Maintenance Division to the Utilities’ Energy Services Division, 18 multi-disciplinary groups responsible for infrastructure renewal will utilize this new, centralized approach to share and view project schedules, and optimize the timing of their projects to reduce the impact on the public and commuters.
Brian Kelley, Engineering Programs Manager for Colorado Springs states, "We are pleased to be using this innovative approach to solve a decades-old problem. The ability to upload and view project schedules on-the-fly gives our many divisions the ability to work on miles of infrastructure above and below ground…without stepping on each others toes. Envista makes it easy to get productive in a very short period of time. The real winners are our citizens who will feel the positive results of our synchronized construction efforts."
