Singapore, April 27, 2017 - Finalcad, the company who has been digitally transforming the construction industry in France, Singapore and in more than 30 other countries since 2011, announces that it was selected by China Construction (South Pacific) Development Co Pte Ltd in Singapore to become their business partner in the digitisation of their work processes including defects management and quality control methods.
Finalcad has seen increasing business development in the South-East Asian region since 2013, and was involved in iconic projects in Singapore such as Changi General Hospital and Singapore Sports Hub.
The Sturdee Residence condominium is located near to City Square Mall at Kitchener Road and close to the Farrer Park MRT station. Sturdee Residence has 200 plus units in two towers of 19 floors. The project size is about 200 000 sqf with a Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) of April 2019. This new lavish development includes a running route, clubhouse, steam room, health spa deck, and gym space.
For this project, China Construction needed a platform for checking and recording defects in a seamless and systematic order. This to ensure that the defects are accurately captured, swiftly communicated to relevant parties while corrective actions are taken to rectify defects in minimum time. For quality control checks, China Construction also wanted to look for a straightforward and easy-to-use solution that is compatible with different types of mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. This will drastically reduce the reliance on paper work as well shorten the time needed to prepare for inspection checks. Above all, China Construction is now empowered to self generate customisable reports that are detailed, accurate and factual to higher management and building owners.
“We chose Finalcad for many reasons. Beyond the ease-of-use and functionality of the app, their customer-centric approach was a key decision driver. We realised that FINALCAD was the only partner with the ability to scale up to all China Construction projects in a short period of time. Having a partner who truly understands our pain points, and is able to provide reliable solutions means Finalcad has the experience and ingenuity to back up their claims. Thanks to Finalcad, each process can be digitised in real time.”
Wei Ke Wu, Project Manager, China Construction (South Pacific) Development Co Pte Ltd
