How Clancy Harnesses Construction Data to Bring 70 Years of Experience Into the Future

Clancy Construction (Clancy) is a 70-year-old construction company headquartered in Ireland. They recently undertook a successful digital transformation using BIM 360 within Autodesk Construction Cloud™ to harness their award-winning experience over three generations of family ownership to grow the company into the future.

Anticipate Change and Adopt Construction Technology to Get Ahead of It

In 2017, the National BIM Council of Ireland released the Digital Roadmap 2021 to support Ireland’s digitisation and construction efficiency.

Instead of purchasing a single tool to solve the problem of regulatory compliance, Clancy’s leadership team took a step back to look at the bigger picture. While they had issues to address today, they knew that to grow, they needed to standardise on cloud technology to capture and collect construction data to improve field collaboration and management.

Digitising Construction Data and Processes

To meet the requirements and successfully undergo a digital transformation, Clancy adopted BIM 360 within Autodesk Construction Cloud™ to bring better quality management to their projects.

In transitioning from paper-based processes to digital, Clancy took a holistic approach by working with all departments to identify and map processes that could be digitised. With BIM 360, Clancy could take advantage of new ways to manage field processes, such as quality, safety, distribution of plans and drawings, and mobile 2D and BIM construction document access.

“The introduction of BIM 360 has brought about a better system for the company to deal with quality, project data recording, checklists, and much more. The user-friendly system supports our core value of collaboration.”

– Aidan Maher, Contract Manager

Improving Safety, Quality, and Collaboration with Connected Data

Quality and safety are the bedrock of Clancy’s approach on the jobsite, and they maintain a zero-incident goal on every project. Using digital checklists in BIM 360, Clancy can link to Inspection Test Plans that contain all relevant material, including markups and photos, in one central repository.

Clancy also utilises QR codes to help control defects and monitor supply chain performance. All rooms and equipment on a project can be tracked with a QR code and linked to elements in BIM 360, enabling Clancy to electronically monitor progress on things such as deliveries, installations, QA/QC processes, and inspections. They are also able to capture information to record and track defects and resolution of issues quickly.

Aligning their technology strategy to their overall goals, Clancy can consistently capture critical project data and analyze it to implement continuous improvement across their company. With a particular focus on health, safety, and quality, Clancy explores new ways to improve operations and refine current processes. With construction technology leading the way, the future is limitless for this organisation.

“With BIM 360, we can meet our high standards of health, safety, and quality and focus on getting projects right the first time.”
