After a successful and incredibly busy 2019, we are pleased to announce lots of new and exciting changes ahead of the new year:
DM Habens are pleased to welcome a new member of staff to the admin team. Leigh will be taking over all Procurement and Purchasing for the company, and will be based in our head office in Southsea.
Our office expansion and refurbishment works at the head office in Southsea is near completion. We have recently expanded our Administration department creating space for our new member of staff and a more open plan, modern working space. In addition to this we have created a new training suite and meeting room, large health and safety store room and a refurbished and modern server room and data store.
Digital Construction Software
We have recently invested in a new digital construction software called ‘Procore’. The software is already being rolled out on new projects starting this year and we have already have lots of positive feedback from both our team.
The software tools include Project Management, Quality & Safety, Design Coordination, and BIM as well as Preconstruction Tender Packages, Financial Management and Resource Management. In due course it is our aim for all site agents to be equipped with an iPad Containing all information needed on site including site drawings, specifications and safety inspections and paperwork at their fingertips. This will not only increase site productivity and ensure our Quality and Safety paperwork is completed to the highest standards it will also dramatically cut down on the amount of paper work and therefore paper recycling used on site.
DM Habens are pleased to announce we are now a BM Trada Q-Mark Fire Door Installation Approved Installer.Our Managing Director Brian Way took part in the Q-Mark fire door installation certification scheme training program which consists of a classroom seminar and written examination.
All our office staff have recently completed Procore online training as part of the new digital construction software we have invested in. This included a 2 – 3 hour training session for each certificate including a mixture of seminars and written examinations. Site Agents currently using Procore on their sites have also completed their own online training, meanwhile the remaining site agents and site operatives will be coming into use our new training suite in the upcoming months.
New Health & Safety Consultants
We are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Health and Safety Consultants – HCS Safety. We look forward to working with them this upcoming year.
