Asite platform assists Laing O’Rourke with bushfire clean-up

Laing O’Rourke has been appointed to lead the clean-up operation following the bushfires that devastated many of New South Wales’s homes and buildings. The global contractor is being assisted by long-standing partner Asite and its Common Data Environment.

Asite’s platform will support the project throughout its duration, providing information management capabilities, ensuring collaboration, accuracy and security. It will be utilised to ensure all project information is held in a single centralised repository, providing project stakeholders with the ability to access, edit, track and manage all information assets in one location.

The solution will also greatly reduce the risk of data loss as information is maintained within a full audit trail throughout the lifecycle of the project.

Atit Patel, Asite senior vice president for APAC, said: “The work being undertaken by the federal and state governments and Laing O’Rourke marked the beginning of the recovery from the devastating bushfires. We are proud to be part of the clean-up and rebuilding process, and are honored our platform will be utilised to work on this important project that has impacted so many people’s lives and the environment.”

The project will focus on the clean-up of damaged residential and commercial structures and infrastructure. Laing O’Rourke began work in February this year and it is expected to be completed by the middle of the year.
