Habtoor deploys key solution at Abu Dhabi resort
Dubai, October 16, 2011
UAE construction giant Al Habtoor-Murray & Roberts JV has adopted a key solution from India-based Wrench Solutions for its upcoming ‘St. Regis Spa and Resort’ project at Saadiyat Beach in Abu Dhabi.
Wrench Solutions, a leading IT solutions provider for engineering and manufacturing industry, said the UAE group has implemented its Wrench technology as the new in-house data management system for the resort project.
Commenting on the switchover, Ron Brinkman, technical manager, Murray & Roberts said, 'We wanted a more sophisticated document management and control system that provided us with real time information and control than the one we were using.'
'Wrench|enterprise was the only software that we evaluated that could provide us all the features that we needed. This software was also able to integrate with our existing infrastructure,' he added.
Around 75000 correspondences are expected over the lifecycle of the project, which consumes a large storage area and maintenance. With Wrench, the incoming correspondences are being scanned and registered in the system and distributed electronically to the users, he noted.
Colin Pickering, project director, Saadiyat Beach Resort Project, said, 'The Wrench implementation has helped us to streamline our process and improve our overall performance.'
“It is very common that the design drawings also get revised during the construction phase due to certain changes in requirements. Any change in design drawing has a subsequent change in shop drawing and the material requirements,' he explained.
'Wrench drawing/specter comparison feature enables the quantity surveyors to easily identify the changes in design across different revisions,' Pickering added.
Clint Nisbet, construction manager, Murray & Roberts, said, 'With the help of this software they can identify the additions and deletions easily and identify the material requirements on a real time basis.”
Wrench|enterprise, an enterprise data management system and project-control solution is the world’s only fully-automated project management solution, enabling full control over every aspect of the project from planning to handover, said Daniel Varghese, CEO of Wrench Solutions.
“After having worked with engineering companies for over a decade we have gathered invaluable insights into how they function and what their challenges are,' he remarked.
'We have spent several years in fine-tuning our software to fulfill those needs systematically. We are delighted to know that we have added value to our clients by reducing their project cycle times and have also increased their productivity,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
