London (PRWEB UK) 4 December 2013
Affectionately known as "The Hammers" and now in their 8th year, the Construction Computing Awards showcase and reward the technology, tools and solutions for the effective design, construction, maintenance and modification of commercial buildings, residential and social housing and civil engineering projects of all sizes. The Construction Computing Awards have also become the event where the industry gets together to network. The awards ceremony was held at London’s Hotel Russell and kicked off with an Asite-sponsored champagne reception.
Asite is proud to have picked up two awards this year for Public Sector IT Project of the Year for Crossrail and Document and Content Management Product of the Year.
Asite and Crossrail won the prestigious IT Project of the Year in the Public Sector award.
Crossrail is the biggest construction project in Europe and is one of the largest single infrastructure investments undertaken in the UK with a construction value of £19 billion. It is a fully owned subsidiary of Transport for London (TfL) and represents a real commitment to the development of new services to tackle the lack of capacity and congestion on the existing network.
Building the new railway involves constructing eight new stations in central London and Docklands and upgrading many existing stations. The new railway will cover 74 miles of track including 30 miles of new twin-bore rail tunnel.
To effectively manage a project of this size, Transport for London requires an easy-to-use solution that integrates strict contract management controls, documents and content and workflow processes into their teams. TFL selected Asite’s Adoddle platform for many reasons, but especially for its proven capability to manage construction projects of this magnitude, and ability to integrate with existing systems. With Adoddle, the Crossrail team has an easy-to-use, cloud-based contract and document management solution that provides instant visibility for their project managers.
