UK Contractor John Doyle is the latest firm to feature in trade mag Contract Journal‘s profile series. Asked about the company’s use of project collaboration tools, Julian Brown, information systems manager says:
“We regularly engage in various project-specific portals. We use tools such as the market leader BIW when working for Bovis, Asite when working for Stanhope, as well as 4Projects and CadWeb. All main contractors use a project portal for drawings now, so there is an audit trail. The format tends to be prescribed for us. It is good to hear that there is a forum now trying to standardise their compatability.”
I think his last comment is a reference to the NCCTP and its efforts on the technical standards front.
