Tatweer Buildings Company automates projects with Proliance
Capital program management software from Trimble will automate projects, management and services
Tatweer Buildings Company has selected Trimble Navigation's Proliance capital program management software to support the development and maintenance of public school buildings and educational facilities throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The Proliance solution will enable Tatweer to automate project and program management capabilities, to expedite construction and improve communication between global project teams, which can improve the financial management of current and future projects.
Tatweer Building Company contracted the services of AECOM, a global provider of professional technical and management support services, to develop internal project and program management capabilities. AECOM has standardised on the use of Proliance and several other solutions from the Trimble Buildings portfolio of Design-Build-Operate (DBO) software.
"The construction of new schools and related infrastructure improvements is part of an unprecedented public spending program by the Saudi government," said Fahad Hammad, CEO of Tatweer Building Company and former deputy minister for the Ministry of Education, Saudi Arabia. "Proliance is an extremely scalable program management solution that standardises the flow of critical project data across global teams to provide key stakeholders with the control, visibility and confidence we need to ensure project success-today and for years to come. We consider Trimble a strategic technology partner enabling Tatweer Building Company to continually enhance the quality of educational facilities in support of our Kingdom's education reform."
"AECOM's knowledge and innovative use of Proliance was a key factor in our selection of Trimble's software. We look forward to using Proliance to establish the same calibre of world-class capital program management processes within our own organisation," added Hammad.
The Proliance solution combines project and portfolio management, facilities management, business process management and business analytics into one system of record, enabling building owners to control program delivery and track how their real estate, construction and facilities portfolios are performing across the plan-design-build-operate lifecycle. A centralised view of real-time project and program status enables early visibility to risks and trends to inform decisions and improve efficiency. Multi-language capabilities, including Arabic support and an option to use the Hijri calendar enable project team members in different regions to collaborate on a single project in their familiar language.
"Standardising project and portfolio management on a common information system drives project efficiency and insight across the project lifecycle from planning and design, through building occupancy and operations," said Peter Hedlund, regional director for Trimble Buildings in the Middle East and India. "We are honoured that Proliance has been selected by Tatweer Building Company to improve educational facilities construction programs throughout Saudi Arabia."
