Morgan Sindall is top of the class after delivering high stakes school development using Powerproject

When your deadline is the start of the new school year, there’s no margin for error. Morgan Sindall Construction used Powerproject by Elecosoft to model an efficient modular technique for building Vandyke Upper School, handing over a completed building snag-free in just 33 weeks.

Morgan Sindall Construction believes in aligning its business objectives with the needs of its customers, partners and wider stakeholders, and Powerproject construction planning software has become critical to helping the company responsibly achieve this goal.

One key team member driving Morgan Sindall’s use of Powerproject is Project Manager, James Wood MCIOB, who has been trained in the software since university. Wood uses Powerproject to create contract and target programmes, underpin his contractor and subcontractor relationships, and extract regular drop line progress reports to show his customers that work remains on-track.

“Powerproject is an important planning and reporting tool, as it creates visibility between us, our contractors and our clients. It’s a really simple piece of software for both internal and external stakeholders to use.”
