New construction software is to be used on the next phase of the luxury Holburne Park development in Bath to help it meet its high-specification criteria.
Homes at Holburne Park are being built with local stone and require a high standard of craftsmanship to mirror the renowned architecture across the city.
Each home has a bespoke interior, using natural materials such as slate and timber for the roofs and window frames.
The high-level of attention to detail puts greater emphasis on collaboration between those working on the new homes.
As the project moves into phase two, Bect Building Contractors is taking over as project contractor and plans to use cloud-based solution Procore to improve collaboration and communication across the wider project team.
Bect made the decision to change software following a number of trials with various software platforms.
Nathan Holmes, commercial and finance director at Bect, said: “Using software can improve how a building comes together but you need the right tools for the job.
“Collaborative working and providing feedback for clients are essential to getting a project right. We also need to be mindful of being safe, productive and keeping on budget.
“It’s a balancing act that we manage but using Procore makes it easier and more accurate.”
James Coombs, Bect managing director, said: “We are fortunate to be going through planned growth in the current climate. Despite a healthy workbook, we know we can’t be complacent so look to new ways to innovate our business that will benefit our clients.
“The great thing is, we can use the software for any project, no matter the size.”
