Defects identification and remedial management are a serious problem for most construction projects worldwide whether it’s a house or a high rise. The time and cost impact on main contractors, consultants and subcontractors is high and typically there is no budget or if there is, it is unrealistically small. Remedial Management is a cost overrun on most projects for all parties and an on-going source of aggravation. If remedial management was priced into a tender then a job would never be won. CATCheckpoint is your solution.
CATCheckpoint is a web-based defect identification and remedial management system for construction projects and has roles for main contractors, client, consultants and subcontractors. There is a commercial and a residential version so no job is too small or too big therefore practical and affordable for any size of project and any size of company. The main cloud-based system has an Android phone companion that allows you to identify and update defects while on site. From the web system you can get reports, analysis, detail and updates. It’s awesome as it allows you to know where all actions are at with a glance.
We appreciate that a vast amount of time gets caught up in remedial management and CATCheckpoint is designed to minimise that time commitment. Notifications up and down the chain ensure re-inspections are no longer completed without confirmation from the contractors first. Progress and performance can be monitored from the comfort of your desk
Project set up is simple and targeted, with the hard work of list compilation being done for all of the typical items. Sadly, the defect items do not change much from job to job, in fact it is boringly repetitive. Simply define the project location structure and select relevant lists for the build type. The objective is for you to do an inspection without having to type, instead selecting relevant items and taking a photo for clarification. Really smart.
Software is only as good as the practical and hands on knowledge of the people who designed it. This system was designed by construction professionals who have documented thousands of defects and are experts with this task and the challenges of getting contractors to finish remedial work. This tool strips thousands of hours from an arduous administration process.
Enter inspections direct from site using your Android phone, Take photos as you go which immediately add to the record. Saving, renaming and uploading are yesterdays news.
