C A S E S T U D Y VIEWPOINT.com | +1 800.333.3197 Mace deployed the Viewpoint's Field View, formally Priority 1, mobile reporting at European Land's £100m Merchant Square development in west London, creating a single standardised system, which accelerated snagging and other site processes and improved reporting and visibility of site progress issues. As a pilot implementation, the project has also developed prototype mobile forms and procedures that can be rolled-out on other Mace projects. Background Mace was appointed by client European Land as design and build contractor for 3 Merchant Square, a £100m mainly residential development overlooking London's Paddington basin. Construction on site began in June 2012 and was scheduled to last 24 months. The scheme features two towers, one of 19 and one of 21 storeys and each with three basement levels. In total, the development includes 159 private premium apartments and 42 affordable apartments, with a high degree of repetition in structure, cladding and fit-out. The project also incorporated a five-star hotel style main entrance, ground-floor retail space, a nursery, business centre and screening room, plus landscaping, a water feature and a new footbridge. Mace has routinely deployed information and communications technology to support design, construction and handover of its projects. The senior project manager wanted his team to use mobile 'snagging' tools to accelerate location-specific capture and reporting of quality issues, having used PDA- based devices from Field View on another Mace project. Moreover, he was keen to use the devices to do more than standard defects management, knowing that residential projects featured a lot of repetitive processes involving the main contractor and work package subcontractors.
