Firm Profile

Overview

In 1996, The Concord Group was founded as a Project Management and Cost Estimating firm in Chicago, Illinois. One of our first clients dating back to 1996 was the Chicago Public Schools, who still remain a client today. Through the years, we have grown to five offices and have provided services in all 50 states on more than 4,000 projects. One of our more recent endeavors includes an expansion overseas to Dublin, Ireland to open our first international office.

State-of-the-Art Technology

We use state-of-the-art technology in all aspects of our service sectors. We have been integral in the development of a project management software, IngeniousIO, which promotes collaboration and transparency among the entire project team and shares real-time project information with all project team members.

Much of the innovation in today’s construction industry resulting from lean delivery methods, prefabrication, BIM, etc. is often negated by the lack of communication between parties and the systems/PM platforms utilized by the different parties. IngeniousIO overcomes this issue.

Currently, the industry utilizes different platforms for document control, RFP’s, submittals, RFI’s, pay applications, field reports, etc. This in turn creates waste and redundancies because these platforms don’t efficiently communicate with one another. We are constantly repeating documents between the parties from one phase to the next.

IngeniousIO eliminates these redundancies by removing documents. Because IngeniousIO is data driven and not document driven, information can travel from decision makers to the field and vice versa more efficiently. The necessity to repackage each time it changes hands is gone. If the initial direction from the Owner contains sensitive information, this information can be withheld from the contractor, designer or field within the system. The information doesn’t need to be recreated, resulting in quicker and more efficient communication.

Our utilization of IngeniousIO with our staff and clients, generates efficiency and is an excellent communication tool. If utilized by all project team members, from vendors through the Owners, the power of this system is immense.
