Case Study: Invested in expanding its on-campus student housing, Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby campus has earmarked $68.5M to construct a 7-story East and 8-story West wing tower located on the current Louis Riel residence site. The new towers, are the first project of the housing expansion and targeting LEED Gold certification. Scheduled to open the fall semester of 2020, the construction project provides first year students access to an additional 482 single room occupancy residences. Onware was used as the contract administration software.
Contract Administrator/Prime Consultant
Prior to the project breaking ground, DIALOG and Scott Construction Group committed to using Onware Sync, an integration tool developed by Onware to synchronize data from one construction management application to another.
Onware Sync was configured to synchronize SFU Phase 1 Residences’ project data, RFI, and Submittal document workflow processes between DIALOG’s Onware Collaborative Contract Administration software and Scott Construction Group’s construction management system, Procore. Amy Brittleton, Contract Administrative Assistant with DIALOG, commented Onware Sync “reduces workload given the bulk of the documents are Submittals and RFIs.”.
Abhay Kaladharan, Project Coordinator for Scott Construction Group, echoed Amy’s sentiments and is “happy with the way [Onware Sync] works”, expressing it is “a lot of work to manually enter information and responses, and the use of Onware Sync reduces this.”
Using Onware Sync allows both Abhay and Amy to continue to use their respective software of choice, so they can focus on more important aspects of the construction project. Onware Sync eliminates the need to manually enter data into both systems. Automating data transfers reduces time and effort for collaborating on documents and sharing. You can trust Onware Sync to automatically update RFI and Submittal project data into the respective contract administration software when expected.
Experiencing firsthand the numerous benefits of Onware Sync, Scott Construction Group has indicated the desire to use Onware Sync on all future projects using Onware. In fact, Onware Sync is already being utilized on another construction project between Scott Construction Group and DIALOG for contract administration.
