VELA, now known as BIM 360 Field, is mobile app that allowed Building, Construction, and Design information to be used in the field and creates one place for all Building Document Information. The implications were a significant reduction in redundant information, re-work, and increase in information collaboration and sharing on the Construction Project. This was a model for Deployment of VELA for Balfour Beatty's NorCAL and Pacific Northwest Region.

Ultimately, VELA was successfully deployed throughout the two regions and has significantly reduced. Much of it had to do with shepherding the information, making sure training had been done effectively and mentoring trainees.
