Housing association Notting Hill Housing is using software from CTSpace to improve efficiencies and drive better collaboration on its property development programme.

CTSpace’s technology will be used to store and share documents and designs across the supply chain to reduce storage and back-up requirements, travel, print and courier costs as well as increasing productivity, deliver faster turnaround times on requests for information and approvals. The investment was also designed to reduce IT costs, the organisation said.

Notting Hill Housing had become concerned about rising costs, said Shane Dargue, land manager at Notting Hill Housing.

“We looked at where we could improve operational costs and productivity, and revising our business processes was a key area that would help. Problem areas included unnecessary replication of information, time wasted searching for information and retrieving files.”

Notting Hill Housing will roll out the CTSpace solution across three new projects by the end of March and intends to extend its use to manage all programmes of work. The aim is to increase delivery from 500 units per year to 2,000 units, amounting to £600 million of work.
