Interserve improves site progress discipline across seven schools
Interserve is one of the world’s foremost support services and construction companies, headquartered in the UK.
Powerproject is one of a suite of tools it uses for project planning.
On a recent project to deliver seven schools simultaneously across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Berkshire, it explored what the companion app, Site Progress Mobile, could do to improve the collection, management and integration of progress updates, and discovered significant benefits in terms of time.
In 2015 Interserve signed a joint venture deal to build seven new schools for students in Hertfordshire, Luton and Reading.
The £135m project now delivers 8,900 student places, of which 900 were newly-created through the new build Priority Schools Building Programme.
Managing a multi-site build is always a significant challenge, requiring the tightest of project management both individually, and in terms of oversight and co-ordination between projects.
Interserve uses Powerproject planning software for that purpose on many of its projects.
Peter Farmer is one of the Senior Planning Engineers at Interserve Construction’s Strategic Projects division, and an experienced Powerproject user, who was tasked with overseeing the project progress.
