Marriott Renaissance Hotels will be using web-based collaboration tools to manage its Renaissance Bahrain Amwaj Islands Hotel project in Bahrain, in a bid to save time and cut costs.

The project, part of a three million square metre development which will include residential and office space alongside a mall and entertainment complex, will use Aconex project collaboration systems to store the hundreds of thousands of documents the project will generate.

"The Renaissance Bahrain is a large, complex development that will involve consultants based around the world, so effectively controlling the flow of information will be vital to completing the project on time and within budget," said Leigh Jasper, managing director of Aconex.

"By using Aconex, project team members will be able to view, distribute and track their data electronically at any time and from any location. This improves productivity through fast retrieval and distribution of data, reduces printing and postage costs, and mitigates risks such as information loss, disputes and delays. As a result, companies save time and money on their projects," he added.

The Renaissance Bahrain hotel is under construction on the Amwaj Islands project, a series of artificial islands off the coast of Bahrain. The hotel will feature 323 rooms, and will include a number of restaurants and leisure facilities.

The Marriot Renaissance project is the third customer in Bahrain for Aconex, which is also providing services to the US$1.2 billion Lulu Island resort and the $300 million Sarab Al Areen complex.

The vendor says it is the market leader in online collaboration for construction and engineering projects, and services projects with a combined value of more than $100 billion around the world.
