One of the major challenges was the enormous amount of digital paperwork involved in construction projects. We work on construction projects that usually involve a huge number of parties. And they all work in different systems that don’t really ‘talk’ to each other. As a result everyone works in a very fragmented way and keeping each other informed and up to date is challenging and time consuming. Is everyone still working in the same version of the correct source document? Are the right things sent to the right people? And, perhaps most importantly, how can you avoid a proliferation – a jungle – of working documents (and versions)?’
Gert-Jan smiles: ‘Thanks to our collaboration with 12Build we are slowly chopping down the jungle of working documents, so that we will eventually arrive at a neatly raked city park! We have been able to reduce the digital paperwork considerably. It is clear to everyone who is working with which version, whether a newer one is already available and with whom which version has been shared. Whether you access them from Autodesk, SharePoint, our own software (ProjectMaster and KMS) or simply from 12Build itself. That increases quality: the time we save on figuring things out and emailing back and forth can now be put into the project itself.’
