Congrid launches in the UK offering Finnish safety and quality expertise

  • 27 Jun 2019

Congrid, the Finnish construction quality and safety software company, has announced its expansion into the UK and the appointment of Daniel Hunt as UK territory manager.

The Congrid mobile app introduces new levels of transparency and communication for safety and quality on construction projects and helps deliver zero-defect buildings to clients.

Already the market leader in Finland, with 60% annual revenue growth and all of the country’s major construction firms using its platform, including WSP, YIT, NCC, and PEAB, Congrid is now setting its sights on the UK.

Congrid’s cloud-based app is aimed at project managers and quality managers at construction companies involved in various projects, including housing, offices, hospitals and schools.

Designed to lower the industry’s reliance on manual, paper-based workflows by digitising on-site project management and documentation, workers use Congrid on smartphones or tablets, to manage safety and quality inspections, document defects and faults and monitor the progress of each work stage in real time, all in the same app.

This approach allows construction companies to involve their contractor network in the quality assurance and safety management process without any extra costs.

Everything is recorded using detailed site plans, enabling the accurate resolution of any issues and subsequent monitoring to guarantee all faults are fixed.

Benefits include increased transparency and better communication between construction companies and their contractors, improved safety levels, reduced quality costs, zero-defect property deliveries and more efficient ways of working on site.

The data collected allows detailed monitoring and reporting on any issues in need of attention. Future product developments include new data visualisation tools to expand what users can learn from their quality and safety data.

Timo Makkonen, CEO of Congrid, commented: “The entire industry needs to change its mindset towards quality – quality is everyone’s business.

“Our software enables all stakeholders involved to participate and take responsibility for quality and safety.

“What we’ve experienced is that quality has become far more of a priority and users are looking for peace of mind, to better manage how a building is built and have a record to demonstrate this.”

Congrid’s first UK appointment sees Daniel Hunt become UK territory manager, responsible for spearheading customer acquisition and hiring further staff in 2019.

Already established in Finland and Sweden, the UK is the first country the company is moving into that is outside of the Nordic region.
