Paris - October 4 th, 2020.
PARIS-OUEST CONSTRUCTION signs a contract with RESOLVING
for the digitalisation of its construction and renovation business processes.
Feedback available on October 5th in video on:
Paris-Ouest Construction, a family-owned group founded in 1945 with more than 250 employees, has signed a three-year partnership with RESOLVING in an effort to strengthen its position with respect to the digitalisation of its construction and renovation businesses.
After the Observations management module, Site Monitoring and Forms Management are now being implemented. The Document Management and BIM modules of the RESOLVING suite will then ultimately be used.
A BIM culture structured around 5 years of practice
The company stared using BIM in 2015, as part of a design-build process that imposed it on all service providers, architects and design offices. What could have been seen as a constraint compromising the profitability of a project was perceived by the technical and general management of PARIS-OUEST CONSTRUCTION as an opportunity, marking its access to a new generation of technologies and business practices.
It is in this context that PARIS-OUEST CONSTRUCTION will adopt RESOLVING’s digital tools for monitoring worksites and raising defects accessible on digital tablets.
A new step with RESOLVING
In June 2020, PARIS-OUEST CONSTRUCTION decided to take another step and, following full-scale tests, definitively opted for RESOLVING's Construction Site Monitoring and Snags/Defects Management solution.
More than a new tool, the switch to RESOLVING technology marks a strong commitment to a digital future.
It is a first step towards the deployment of the full suite of RESOLVING business tools, starting at the end of this year with additional modules, Document Management and BIM.
A digital transformation based on the reality on the field
The Technical and Digital Transition Department of PARIS-OUEST CONSTRUCTION is staffed by 8 people, 4 of whom are BIM specialists, coordinating engineers, modelers and developers. BIM coordinators are the active agents of a digital future. In addition to preparing BIM models upstream, they steer external partners and internal users through their digital evolution.
For the 15 projects we are running in parallel, the digital tools are likely to be used by 50 to 80 users with different business profiles and IT cultures. Our role is not just to impose a new tool, but to accompany the change for all users and thus set in motion the digital transformation of the entire company, explained Xavier TOURNILLON Technical and Digital Transition Director of Paris-Ouest Construction. .
RESOLVING consultants will provide support for setting up methods for collecting, analyzing and standardizing user practices, which is a prerequisite for any effective digitalisation of internal methods and processes.
RESOLVING will also help train users on the tools.
We know that the digital transition of buildings – both at the construction and the management stage - with home automation, is a source of overall energy optimisation, said Xavier TOURNILLON. We are committed to these developments and RESOLVING's tools will help make them happen.
