Skanska Norway AS is a large Norwegian construction contractor operating in both the civil engineering and building sectors.

Their tunnelling projects have teams of tunnel workers, engineers and geologists working underground with the construction of new road and train infrastructure in Norway.

The Solution

Using Formworks, iPad forms were set up and optimised with formulas and logic to capture information on tunnel construction activities. Forms were customised for different tasks and set up to automatically calculate time spent completing them. The forms include a sketching feature, enabling geologists to quickly map out support bolt locations. Data from the forms is fed directly into the project management reporting systems.

The Challenge 

Using Formworks, we replaced the paper process with secure iPad forms which are available offline and include data validation controls, logic and calculations to ensure all required information is collected at the client meeting. The iPad forms are easy to use and include time and date stamped signature fields. Collected data is immediately transmitted from site and automatically fed into the central case administration system providing real time MI. The iPad forms are auto pre-filled with client data and transmitted to each representative ahead of their visit.

“Since using Formworks the Skanska project team are saving at least 6.5 hours per day now that data no longer has to be manually entered and migrated into various internal systems.”
