Assemblin Uses Fieldwire to Build the Future European Spallation Source
Key facts & figures
- 1,508,597 meters of cable installed onsite by Assemblin
- Up to 3,000 international researchers to be hosted annually in ESS for scientific breakthroughs in the fields of environment, health and energy
- The construction project brings together all stakeholders with a common mission: building one of the world’s most advanced and environmentally sustainable research facilities.
As a large-scale European project, the development of ESS involves technical and organizational challenges for the Assemblin teams, with many tasks to be managed simultaneously.
Before Fieldwire, the Assemblin team used paperwork, as well as the Office suite and business softwares. This workflow reached its limits for this project: with multiple information sources, the risk of losing track of the latest data available arised. It became obvious that they needed a central and integrated solution.
Fieldwire is the unique source of truth that employees can rely on. Time-consuming tasks can now be automated. Anders Lundgren, Lead electrical fitter, says that this is a real time-saver in his daily work. Looking up information is now very quick for him and for project managers. All the relevant documentation and plans are always at hand, complete and with revision archives, and available from their desktop or in the field from a smartphone or tablet.
The impact of using Fieldwire has been measured: Assemblin estimates they saved 25% of working time by switching from the previous working method to Fieldwire.
“ Fieldwire has definitely helped us become more efficient. By being able to keep track of our actions, we no longer need to go back and check every time. In this sense, Fieldwire has allowed us to tackle a major construction challenge: jobsite management.”
The adoption of Fieldwire has transformed the way Assemblin teams work together. Having seen the benefits in terms of efficiency and smooth communication, they can no longer imagine working without it!
