At Lindford, our focus has always been on helping you avoid disputes wherever possible.
Having worked with clients at all stages and on projects across sectors, we see similarities in the problems that arise.
One thing is key to avoiding disputes: good record management. The late Max Abrahamson, leading lawyer and arbitrator is frequently quoted as saying that anyone involved in a construction dispute quickly learns three things: the importance of records, the importance of records and the importance of records.
You might think as an industry we would know this by now. But as you know, sometimes what should be recorded and what is actually recorded are very different things.
There are better ways to manage our project documentation. But as a sector, construction lags behind when it comes to the uptake of new technology. We think this needs to change.
We have partnered with OpenSpace to help you bring your record management into the 21st century. OpenSpace uses cutting-edge technology, like that in self-driving cars. It allows you to capture your project’s progress in real time.
How does it work?
You strap on a 360 camera when you want to capture the job, say during a routine inspection or walk, and hit “go” on the app. It’s as easy as using a fitbit. Much like Google’s ‘Streetview’ the software builds up a complete record of what’s happening at any point on the site.
By capturing every detail on your site, with no added labour, you can eliminate inaccurate pics and sketchy write-ups. These records can be accessed from anywhere and shared your team.
