Data, and its effective management, is increasingly becoming the lifeblood of the construction industry. The site office of a main contractor is the hub where all this data has to flow through – from the architects’ plans and engineering drawings, through to the sub contractors’ contracts, logistics planning and all the necessary legal and regulatory documentation required to run a safe and efficient project. This data needs to be up to date and needs to be kept secure ensuring that projects can be completed on time and on budget.
With profit margins on even the most prestigious building project at very slim levels, any form of risk that can induce time delays and the associated cost penalties requires minimisation. Human error, use of outdated drawings, delays in receiving drawings or delays in receiving responses to RFI (request for information) from the client can all cause significant disruption.
The consultancy services of CCL have a proven track record within the construction industry assisting with the mitigation of risk associated with the management and security of data. The current operating trends are to move to cloud based solutions for BIM (building information modeling) that will ensure that the dispersed teams of architects, engineers, contractors and clients can all effectively collaborate and communicate. This requirement for efficiency can be achieved through the utilisation of our highly skilled services.
With 30 years of experience assisting the construction industry, we have the confidence to consistently tackle even the most challenging of data management and workflow requirements. Once achieved construction companies can start to use IT to differentiate their services and provide more innovation to their customers and the industry as a whole.
