HOLT RENFREW

Holt Renfrew came to DedON to help them better understand & evaluate their retail results within their stores. They understood their sales but didn’t understand how sales were affected by the location & size of the actual shop footprint in the store. After understanding Holt Renfrew’s analytic approach, DedON provided the following solution. DedON measured an entire store & inputted into Revit. Revit is Autodesk’s BIM (building information modeling) software, and is a combination of 3D model & database in one interconnect piece of software. With the whole store (building, shop footprints, fixtures & displays) modeled we could output data to prove the actual square footage of each brand. This way Holt Renfrew could calculate sales per square foot as well as map good & poor selling brands. This allowed them to move to a whole new level of planning, buying and ultimately has led to improved sales, a deeper understanding of the sales numbers and more informed buyers.

WOMEN'S COLLEGE HOSPITAL

Walsh & Bondfield come to DedON to help them solve the on-going challenge of confirming their construction sub-trades (electricians, drywallers, mechanical, etc) project completion. The problem, was they had to pay contractors (aka sub trades) as parts of their work was completed. They also had to hold them accountable to maintain a schedule. They struggled to prove if the work was completed or not, & by which date it was completed. DedON delivered a set of photographs that captured the condition of each wall in each room of the hospital. We took approx. 2,000 photos each & every week. We took exactly the same photo standing in the same place & numbered them exactly the same each week. We controlled this process with the creation of a photo location plan which over-layed the floor plans of the hospital and displayed the photo number, location & direction the photo was taken, so photos could be referenced off the plan. The result, W&B now had a searchable catalogue of photographs. They could search by date and quickly see the construction progress anywhere in the building at that specific date. Or they could see the weekly progress of a specific room. This allowed them to pay only the contractors that had completed their work – proven by the dated specific photographs. This has also benefited their legal team, as they now have definitive proof of sub trade progress week by week. This project ran over the span of approx. 18 months.

POLO RALPH LAUREN

PRL is an international retail brand with stores around the world. PRL came to DedON as a resource to provide as-built surveys ahead of designing, manufacturing and installing their retail shops. We began working for PRL brands across the United States & Canada with great success. The centralized New York City planning team enjoyed a unified field survey no matter where in Canada or the United States their shop was. It streamlined their project management (single source) and unified their planning process. After a few years we offered our field survey services outside of North America. The centralize NYC planning department could now benefit from a single source who could deliver a predictable product in North America, Mexico, Caribbean and Europe. This allowed PRL to reduce the number of contractors, simplify their field survey request process, streamline their planning process around a unified deliverable and enjoy the benefits of volume pricing.
