Gladedale builds on project managment software

Construction company Gladedale has implemented collaborative project management software to save time and costs on its £212m Oatlands regeneration project in Glasgow.

"Autodesk Buzzsaw helps us deal with all questions much faster, whether from our directors or from the plumbers, as we have almost instant access to all current information, which prevents hold ups when changes need to be made," said Gerry Smith, construction manager at Gladedale.

The system has enabled Gladedale to make 2,000 drawings and other documentation for the regeneration project available online.

"Authorised personnel can access any drawing or project documentation including completion notices and health and safety files, whenever it is needed," said Malcolm Crawford, senior architectural technician at Gladedale.

The system also makes updated drawings available as soon as they have been completed or revised, which ensures everyone involved in the project is working to the latest versions.

"By turning the project into an almost paperless operation, Buzzsaw offers a greener and far more cost-effective alternative to the traditional way of disseminating construction information," said Crawford.
