Taywood profiled in CJ

The latest Contract Journal monthly profile of a well-known construction group looks at Taylor Woodrow Construction. The question about project collaboration tools reveals, unsurprisingly, that it tends to use 4Projects:

"The company was quick off the mark and one of the first to incorporate the use of project collaboration tools. In our experience, web-hosted extranets, such as www.4projects.com allow for rapid deployment of new projects and provide controlled collaboration with the partners and organisations we work with. A collaboration tool is used on all our projects. The divide is 95% using 4Projects, with the 5% balance being made up of projects for clients who must have a specific tool, or where we are in a niche area."

I say ‘unsurprisingly’ not because of the CJ relationship with 4Projects (CJCollaboration), but because of 4Projects’ history. I believe its solution was originally developed for Taylor Woodrow in the late 1990s, and both managing director Richard Vertigan and partnerships director Duncan Mactear had spells in Taywood’s employment (as stated on the 4projects website here).
