Built’s decision to standardise on Fieldwire comes after a thorough process of trying and testing multiple platforms across various use cases and projects over two years. Built is seeking to equip its project teams, subcontractors and partners with purpose-built mobile tools around plan viewing, document sharing, and labour coordination. Fieldwire was selected for its ability to combine those multiple needs into one easy-to-use platform.
“The construction industry has been slow to digitise, but at Built we’re looking to lead the way to reshape the future of the industry by adopting and developing leading technology that allows us to work better, smarter, and faster,” says Brett Mason, Built’s managing director. “Fieldwire does more than simply remove paper from our jobsites, it frees up our teams and partners to be more mobile and helps them to collaborate and problem solve together on-site.”
Since establishment over two decades ago, the $1.4 billion tier 1 contractor has grown exponentially, handling everything from $400-plus million new construction projects to high-end retail fitouts for world leading luxury brands and complex refurbishments of iconic buildings. Built has a 70 percent repeat client record.
Built already leveraged Fieldwire’s solution by integrating it with other parts of its technology stack including Dropbox and Aconex on projects such as a commercial office tower, Barrack Place, in central Sydney and Parramatta Square, one of Australia’s largest urban regeneration projects.
“Fieldwire’s ability to integrate effectively with other technology partners was a critical factor in our decision,” says Sujeet Rana, Built’s chief digital officer (CDO). “We are always looking for best-of-breed solutions that fit easily into our broader ecosystem allowing us to create a seamless experience for our team members. We see this as key to the future of building efficiency in our industry.”
With the addition of Built, Fieldwire continues to expand its international footprint.
“We are excited to count Built as one of our enterprise customers,” says Yves Frinault, Fieldwire’s CEO. “Built’s decision to standardise on one solution across its portfolio will fuel continued innovation based on customer feedback.”
