Following yesterday’s new video from The B1M explaining what Common Data Environments are, a construction company from the United Kingdom have explained the process behind choosing their CDE.

Newcastle based construction company Metnor have spoken to BDaily about their collaboration with Atlas Cloud, a cloud solutions provider whose services will enable to them to collaborate remotely with their project partners on Building Information Modelling projects.

According to the article, Atlas will create a “fully-managed customised cloud platform” for Metnor, one that will make transferral of files between Metnor’s Newcastle and Maidenhead offices seamless and “increase productivity through real-time communication”.

“The solution we developed for Metnor Group had specific objectives to increase productivity through real-time communication via technology and operational efficiency through version control on and offline, both internally and with wider contributors,” explained Pete Watson, Atlas Cloud’s Chief Executive. “It’s great to see architects, quantity surveyors and contractors communicating on tablets on site.”

“This new way of working at Metnor will substantially increase its productivity with site-based staff being able to access and update 3D modelling or project status documents in real time on an internet-connected laptop or tablet.”

Watson continued: “Instead of having to make changes to a physical paper plan then having to return to the office to make the adjustments at a work station, they now can view and edit documents remotely while on site or in a client meeting.”

Adam Langman, Metnor’s Finance Director also provided comment, stating: “We appointed Atlas Cloud because of its breadth of experience across the construction supply chain and, in particular, 3D virtualisation, collaboration and on and offline working. It gives us confidence in their expertise and contacts as well as our future requirements.”
