Irish developer goes digital with Zutec

A property developer in Ireland has adopted a platform from Zutec to manage its construction project data.

Quantum Group has turned to the digital solution to help manage document, quality, handover, and health and safety information on its projects; expected to help the company deliver safer homes to a higher standard.

Patrick Shaughnessy, construction director at Quantum Group, said: “At Quantum, we place a huge emphasis on build quality and excellence, and are proud to lead the way in bringing in specialist and innovative techniques to support our drive to be more effective, efficient, productive, and sustainable.

“In a market where quality cannot be overlooked, we required a platform to differentiate ourselves from others and create a framework for quality-driven processes. With innovation at its core, Zutec fitted the bill in terms of an easy-to-use platform that provides solutions, features and functionality that gives us more control over how we manage documents, and information related to construction and quality for all our projects – all from one place.

“This will help us better manage site teams, site progress, suppliers, and sub-contractors, and ultimately raise the standards of the quality and innovation across our developments.”

By digitising building information and construction documents, Quantum will use Zutec’s Document Management for planning, design, tenders, procurement, and plot tracking, including the ability to approve drawings for future developments and resolve issues on site as they arise.

With project information in one place, it is said that Quantum can eliminate inefficient and costly “data sprawl”, but also save time and costs by having clear visibility of information that enables better understanding of projects and drives more informed decisions that bring projects to completion faster.

James Cannon, chief revenue officer at Zutec, said: “As developers and housebuilders look to digitise more construction and quality processes, our aim is to support them with the best solutions that help drive structure and standardisation in data and documentation across their business.

“Before now, Quantum didn’t have a digital system in place to manage information during the construction stages, and relied on manual and paper-based processes. With Zutec they can have all their information in the cloud and workflows in place to ensure the right people have the right information at the right time, empowering teams to deliver builds more efficiently and to higher-quality standards, while giving site managers complete control and confidence over works completed.”
