VINCI Construction UK realises its desire for a digital future using Powerproject Vision

VINCI Construction UK’s building division entrusted Powerproject Vision to support the drive for digital transformation in their planning processes to great sucess.

Powerproject Vision is a cloud platform that enables planners and project managers to work consistently across multiple projects and collaboratively around shared projects, no matter where they are based. VINCI’s building division typically manages between 25 and 30 concurrent live projects, plans up to 100 preconstruction or tender projects per year, and has nine offices distributed around the UK.

Steven Tideswell, Head of Business Excellence explained:

“Historically our planners worked on Powerproject files on their laptops and didn’t always copy changed files back to the server. Filing was inconsistent so, when files were suddenly needed from someone no longer there, it meant searching around, navigating oddly named folders and files and struggling to understand the status. Now we know exactly where the programme is: on the Powerproject Vision cloud.

Having reached the stage where much of our project management architecture had been refreshed and matured, we realised that significant change was needed in the planning team’s technology and tools, as well as what they could do with data, insights, and reporting.

We are committed Powerproject users and quickly realised that Powerproject Vision could be an effective solution to our challenges.”

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of continuity and flexibility of working, as people worked from home more often, were furloughed, or redeployed to fill in for absent colleagues. Steven sees Powerproject Vision as a strong aid to programme continuity both in turbulent times and normal ones, because planners could leave, go on holiday or be absent at any time.
