After Collin County voters approved a $600 million bond referendum to facilitate the college’s master plan, Collin College chose Projectmates Construction Program Management Software to manage its “2020 Vision Master Plan.” AECOM was also selected to manage the bond program. The college’s master plan will provide more programs and facilities to accommodate the county’s projected population growth in the next two decades.
AECOM wanted to be partnered with a software vendor that could get them up and running quickly but still be flexible enough to modify as they hire their design professionals and CMARs. Projectmates has an average implementation time of 2-4 months.
Collin College will be using Projectmates for its powerful capital improvement project software capabilities. With capital the Capital Planning feature, Collin College and AECOM will be able to strategize and track their capital projects over multiple years and through all four phases. Using the intuitive design and workflows Projectmates prides itself on, CIP will make a typically complex process for reporting magnitudes simpler with a graphical report of projects, costs, and expenditures.
Several new facilities being built include a new campus in Wylie, a technical center in Allen, educational centers in both Celine and Farmersville, and an IT center at the Preston Ridge Frisco campus. Projectmates will be utilized for the $600M bond management and capital construction project management throughout phase’s I-IV.
