BEsim – BESIX site installation management – was introduced in 2017 during the first internal ideation wave of UNLEASH, the BESIX Group innovation program. The idea, to standardise and improve BESIX’s site installation, became one of the 3 selected ideas by the Innovation Board and our CEO Rik Vandenberghe.
BEsim – BESIX site installation management implemented at Mohamed Bin Rashid Library Quay Wall
In May 2018, we built the first mock-up in the UAE on the Mohamed Bin Rashid Library Quay Wall project (DCS). The challenge was to combine all selected elements together as per our vision and to meet the project requirements. Nevertheless, this first mock-up made us realise that there is still room for improvement. Having one BEsim Coordinator, the learning curve will yield results for all future site installations. In less than a year from now, we are convinced that this will bring us the forecasted results of our initial idea.
In the meantime, Six Construct was very successful in winning tenders, which is what made BEsim immediately a busy vehicle. In the coming months, major parts of our new standard will be installed on DSB, RAP and WIS. We also started working on current tenders, such as Burj2020, to be able to react quickly in case of an award.
Our main challenge today is to build up a small stock of each element of our improved site installation and to be able to react from day one of a project award, which was not yet possible in recent months. We are convinced that this will be resolved by the end of 2018. At the same time, we are currently working on further improvements, mainly on labour facilities and the AC systems for office cabins.
Of course, all feedback from employees working in the new BEsim site installation environments are welcome. From now on, we will also keep everyone in BESIX Group up to date on further improvements being implemented.
We want to thank the management of BESIX Group and Six Construct for their trust and continuous support, and for implementing this UNLEASH idea.
