Space is the Final Frontier at Carillion

When it comes to major construction projects, Carillion is in the forefront as one of the UK’s leading support services and construction companies, employing over 50,000 people across the world. With projects of this size comes a paperwork mountain to match and the efficient storage of all the drawings and information can provide an "Everest" size headache.

It was just such a situation that Carillion found themselves in. Several recently completed projects had generated so much documentation that it required several rooms and two lock ups to house! Even corridor shelves had been brought into service to manage the amount of paperwork that a project of this scale creates.

The decision was taken to source an agency to manage the scanning of both the documents and large scale drawings that were involved. After careful review, ADEC Preview was selected as being the best able to deliver on all the key elements required from an operational and organisational perspective. Thoroughness and attention to detail, the ability to break the job down prior to collection as well as a clear understanding of how the job was to be presented were all of high importance.

In addition, ADEC Preview offered the speed of collection and service which allowed them to deliver within the time constraints that Carillion were under due to an imminent move into new offices. Timing was therefore key - to have taken all the documentation in paper format would have added costs and time to the move, as well as requiring additional space to accommodate it.

No need to worry - the scanning was completed successfully and the move went ahead without the mountain of paperwork in tow.

Of course, the work does not end there. There are always ongoing projects in different stages of completion at a company of the size of Carillion. But, with the document scanning safely under control, office space is no longer a barrier to having the right information safely stored and available to the right people as and when they need it.
