CDE will help ensure collaboration and compliance for the new University of Brighton building
Engineering contractor, William Coates, will be using Asite’s cloud-based Common Data Environment (CDE) to support its delivery of the installation of Mechanical & Electrical Services at the University of Brighton new Business School.
The new six-floor building, consisting of 6,400 sqm of floorspace, will be located at the University’s Moulsecoomb campus with the development also housing a 600 space multi-storey car park. The project is set to complete in September 2020 and is part of the wider campus regeneration which seeks to create a world-class learning facility.
“Asite has been a very useful management tool for our Brighton project, says Gareth Holden, Senior Electrical Contracts Manager at William Coates. “During design stage all users were able to communicate via comments, it facilitated drawing mark-ups and correspondence with ease. Asite has been especially critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. The processes set up for our project facilitated the design team to track, update and maintain flow of information”
“We have been using Asite for over 6 months now, and it has been as asset in helping us manage the Brighton University project,” added Megan Picking, document controller, William Coates. “It has made communicating with our sub-contractors, designers and client easier, quicker and more efficient by sending each document through a workflow so that every relevant person sees what they need to and knows what the next step is to keep the process moving.
“I think Asite has really helped the transition to working from home for the team. Everything is one location for team members to locate quickly and easily from their own homes. The specifically designed workflows allow the documents to flow from person to person with all comments fully traced.”
Williams Coates Ltd will be utilising Asite’s Document Management solution, Workflow Management solution and the platform’s Field Management App to fulfil its work on the project.
