Zutec provided Multiplex with an online platform to manage their handover procedure and their day to day operation. Using Zutec the consultants and subcontractor could access their own pre defined folder structure upload and offer their handover information for review. Zutec provided training and support to all parties on how to access and upload information to the platform.
Multiplex CDM then accessed the complete O&M folder structure and used any information needed to compile the health & safety file which is also available on Zutec. Zutec then provided access to the client agent to review and ensure the information provided by the subcontractors reflected site conditions. During the construction phase Multiplex used Zutec’s site tool to capture any issues raised on site.
Using the automatic notification feature on Zutec, Multiplex were notified daily about these observations raised by the client team. Which in turn enabled them to distribute these observations to the contractor to rectify.
One part of the handover deliverables is to provide a full list of snags/defects to the client, by compiling all snags on Zutec, Multiplex were easily able to fulfil this handover requirement. The client has full access to Zutec through the defect liability period.
