Construction Computer Software Gulf LLC (CCS) General Manager, Rob Matheson, discusses why “real” project cost control must start right at the beginning by utilising purpose-built and best of breed estimation and planning tools.

In keeping with our drive to stay ahead of our customers’ needs, we wanted to provision a version of Candy enabling a as-a-Service (aaS) offering. The new cloud-based solution needed to offer all of the benefits of the existing Windows application, while enabling Candy (Single and Multi-User) and QTO (2D & 3D – Navisworks) to be deployed online and accessed from any location around the world.  This is how we did it.

If you did anything online today, thank a programmer.  September the 13th is Programmers’ Day, and here at CCS, we agree that it’s high time these unsung heroes and heroines are celebrated.

CCS CEO, Andrew Skudder, examines the role digitisation will play in the future of the construction industry.

Construction contracts have always been a major part of the industry, and many of those contracts are now so common that they are included in almost any project. Even if you have been in the business for years, it’s worth taking a fresh look at these vital documents to stay up-to-date for your next project.

South African construction companies have endured a difficult few years. Not only have they struggled as a result of a slowdown in government infrastructure spending, but they have also faced difficulties because of late or slow payment by their clients.
