A unified game plan.
What would happen if we made project plan data and real-time analysis available to every worker on a construction site? This question drove Mortenson’s “Last 100 Feet®” initiative, which made use of new Digital Plan Tables, tablets, and Plan of the Day (POD) workstations. Not only was VDC enabling the building of structures which were once unthinkable, like Target Field in Minneapolis, MN, but building information modeling was now improving the management of facilities post-construction.

The Last 100 Feet® in Action
Mortenson introduces the concept of The Last 100 Feet®, which moves VDC from a computer in an office directly into the field, driving efficiency and innovation further into the project site.
Developing Our First "Virtual Mockups"
Mortenson project teams develop our first enclosure “virtual mock-ups, ” which are detailed enclosure models that allow our teams to build virtually before we build physically.
Fourth AIA BIM Award
Mortenson receives its fourth AIA TAP award for Design/Delivery Process Innovation using Building Information Modeling. Awarded projects include UoW BDH Interdisciplinary Research Building (2007), UCHSC Research II (2009), EKG Cornerstone Art Center (2009).
