Irish housing developer Quantum Group has selected Zutec to enable it to manage construction project data from a single platform.

Zutec is rolling out document, quality, handover and health and safety management solutions to support Quantum in delivering safer, higher-standard homes and properties.

Patrick Shaughnessy, construction director at Quantum, said: “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. 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 subcontractors, and ultimately raise the standards of the quality and innovation across our developments.”

Document management

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 on-site issues as they arise. With project information in one place, Quantum can eliminate inefficient and costly data sprawl, and use the enhanced visibility of information to make more informed decisions.

Quantum will also use a suite of integrated quality assurance and health and safety forms, checklists and inspections to ensure data is digitised and can be easily collected consistently. This will include the ability to upload photos to evidence work completed and a snagging register so data can be reviewed, and problems resolved ahead of handover. Data related to safety inspections can be captured on site in real-time, then shared with teams to provide safety visibility and mitigate risk. 

Handover management

Zutec’s handover management means Quantum can manage projects to completion by bringing together O&M manuals, fire evacuation files and health and safety files in one place to meet asset owner and regulatory obligations.

All data can be captured in the field by site teams and subcontractors using the Zutec Field app from any device with or without a wifi connection. Information is then synced in the Zutec cloud, when a device is online, and uploaded into the Zutec dashboard for reporting and analytics, but also for easy information, site progress and compliance.

James Cannon, chief revenue officer at Zutec, said: “Until now, Quantum hasn’t had a digital system in place to manage information during the construction stages: they 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.”
