Concerto wins Blackburn with Darwen Council

Leading project and facilities management company, Concerto, has been awarded a new contract with Blackburn with Darwen Council. The council is a corporate landlord for over 600 properties in the north west of England and has a long-term estates management agreement with Capita.

The Concerto software will support a range of maintenance and project activities including planned preventative and reactive maintenance, supply chain management and performance monitoring, as well as project programme management and estates management, a module principally for use by the Capita team. The deployment of the mobile app for the supply chain will streamline the process and improve communication, as will the interface with the council’s finance systems for both accounts payable and receivable.

The new contract with Blackburn with Darwen Council establishes a technology platform that creates an holistic view of the estate for the council as well as driving the estates strategy review. As part of the mobilisation plan we are consolidating functionality from a number of existing systems into our Concerto software. The goal is to create interfaces for stakeholders and improve the data and information to support day to day operations as well as strategic decision making,” said Kevan Davey, Managing Director, Concerto.

The aspiration in the industry is for BIM models to become the primary tools for the whole project team however, according to the survey, collaboration is the key, and the barrier, to a successful BIM environment.

Chris Hallam, Partner in Pinsent Masons’ Projects, Construction and Engineering team, has surmised from the survey results that greater collaboration is needed in order for BIM to be a success. He highlights some of the main barriers to successful collaboration as being the integrity of information input into construction models and the allocation of risk which does not consider the project as a whole.
