About the Customer

CORE Construction is a Construction Manager at Risk, Design-Build, General Contracting, and Job Order Contractor with over 1,200 employees providing annual revenue in excess of $900 million.

CORE has a proven track record of providing exemplary services to a wide range of clients in the K-12, municipal, higher education, multifamily, healthcare, and federal markets. We have 14 regional offices in seven states and a history reaching back almost 80 years.

Scope and Challenges

“We take care of our customers by finishing their construction projects on time and on a budget,” says Dustin Burks, Chief Information Officer at CORE Construction. “It’s a critical part of our success. If a project runs over schedule, we see the profit fade significantly.”

CORE Construction used different versions of project management and scheduling software from Oracle (Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management). With inconsistent tools, it could not define a standard approach to project scheduling and reporting. Management had limited visibility into the company’s project portfolio, relying instead on verbal reports or individual project schedules that were not always up-to-date.

Outcome and Implications

CORE Construction gained a cost-effective, user-friendly, and interoperable project portfolio management solution with Microsoft Project Server 2013. CORE Construction made its decision after evaluating the pros and cons of standardizing on the latest solution from Oracle.

Project Server comes with Microsoft Project Web App, a web-based application that CORE Construction employees can use for many project management tasks, anywhere they have an Internet connection.

Using its project portfolio management solution from Microsoft, CORE Construction has a user-friendly tool to ensure project schedules are met and to enjoy anytime, anywhere access to project data. At the same time, executives have new visibility into the project portfolio. “With Project Server 2013, we gain easy access to the consolidated, standardized, and accurate project and portfolio data,” says  Dustin Burks, Chief Information Officer at CORE Construction. “Now we can ensure that our projects are completed on time and our customers are satisfied.”


“The team from Sensei Project Solutions was terrific,” says Dustin Burks, Chief Information Officer at CORE Construction.

“They provided tremendous value as they unlocked the potential of the software. We went from the client-only deployment to the full project portfolio solution in less than three weeks.”
