GB Building Solutions extend corporate deal with BIW to support business improvement strategy
(19th January 2011)
Leading national contractor GB Building Solutions “GB” has signed a new 5-year deal with BIW Technologies for the provision of BIW’s project control solution, supporting GB’s commitment to the delivery of high quality construction projects.
GB operates in the Healthcare, Residential, Education, Hotel & Leisure and Commercial sectors concentrating on projects up to £30m. GB decided to renew the arrangement with BIW, building upon a three year engagement that has seen BIW provide management of all GB’s projects.
Delivered over the internet as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application, BIW’s document and process management modules have helped GB achieve excellent standards of information management whilst supporting ongoing continuous improvement.
“The decision to continue our investment in BIW was driven by the success of the previous 3 years,” explains Brian Jeffery, IT Director at GB. “There are numerous tangible & intangible benefits from using the BIW system these include; cost and time savings. Coupled with the system’s reliability, robustness and the availability of a full audit trail, we’ve effectively been able to reduce risk across our project delivery process. By continuing to use BIW we’re supporting our ongoing goal of maintaining a more effective and efficient approach to design management.”
“Having worked very closely together for the past three years to help GB Building gain sustainable improvement in their project operations, we are obviously thrilled GB has selected us as their chosen project control platform for the next five years.” Adds Colin Smith, CEO BIW Technologies. “It’s reassuring to know that in the fast moving market in which we operate, GB realised that technology on its own is not the answer. System reliability, a trustworthy relationship and a focus on process improvement is the source of continuous improvement.”
