Driving Success: See What’s Inside Kahua’s New Transportation Package

Are infrastructure projects different from any other type of construction? Yes and no. 

That’s why the new Kahua for Transportation solution includes the standard features that all owners need in their construction project management information systems (PMIS) as well as those features specific to owners who are planning and building roads, bridges, airports, ports and more. 

Kahua’s construction management solution for transportation and infrastructure is flexible to conform to your project requirements today and can easily adapt to unknown demands in the future.  

Here are the features we know our transportation owners will appreciate, as included in our Transportation Suite of Apps to ensure on-time and on-budget delivery of capital programs, adhering to specific project controls, environmental requirements and the management of various funding sources. 

  • Environmental & Field Inspections: Enable collaboration across different users required to assure all plans meet environmental regulations, assuring the construction projects are “easy on the earth.”  Working with the permitting app, all relevant information is associated with each inspection for reference throughout the entire build and maintain phases of a project, enabling a seamless handover.  

  • Deficiencies: Accelerate your close-out process with real-time updates and approval workflows to manage from anywhere – jobsite to office. 

  • Permitting: Manage and maintain all permits in a single location for collaboration across all users at each phase of construction, enabling a seamless handover. 

  • Material Testing: With an eye on construction sustainability and to manage new reporting mandates, manage asset emissions data in one place from planning to handover and drive actions with integration to Kahua’s Deficiency app.  

Kahua is also announcing its STIP App, which helps navigate the complexities of State Transportation Improvement Programs, whether local or statewide, by balancing limited resources with extensive infrastructure needs. 

Here is how the STIP App works: 

  • Makes reporting and submitting simple by utilizing pre-determined attributes, such as time periods, transit modes and geographic areas. This is easily submittable to state and federal agencies. 

  • Connects to existing portfolios to manage all projects and portfolios on state, regional and municipal levels in real-time program and scenario analysis. 

  • Reduces time by generating aggregated report data while collecting that info in a consistent format. 

Other features that are critical to the on-time, on-budget delivery of capital programs adhere to specific project controls, environmental requirements and the management of various funding sources.  

  • Capital planning: Create optimized capital plans right from your project management tool to prioritize and forecast potential and current projects for multiple year capital plans over defined time frames based on standard or custom curves. 

  • Sources of Funds: Manage unlimited fund sources, appropriations, reserves and releases to programs and projects based on defined rules and amounts at the budget, commitment and actuals level. 

  • Cost Management: Simplify the creation and management of budgets for real-time visibility and control to manage commitments through the lifecycle of capital projects. 

  • Kahua Analytics: Powered by Microsoft PowerBI, Kahua’s built-in Analytics gives the ability to access data with powerful dashboards readily available both out-of-the-box and with flexible configurations for business needs.
