Our customers: Signal & Hobbs
Signal & Hobbs are a roofing specialist company based in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
We chat to the Signal & Hobbs team about how they’re using Conqa.
Signal & Hobbs believe that key deliverables in construction should always be Quality, Cost, and Capability. They also understand that successful tendering means delivering all three of those outcomes, which can be difficult. This is why Signal & Hobbs have partnered with Conqa, to ensure their Quality Assurance delivers whilst keeping the cost down.
Here is what Wayne McLean – Signal & Hobbs Director & Project Manager, has to say about how Conqa has added value to their business:
“CONQA has allowed our site managers and project teams to record and report on quality issues in real time in the field. By using CONQA we have eliminated defects before our clients are aware of them, we generate completion and handover reports which can be issued to all project stakeholders from mobile devices. This protects us and our clients from damage by following trades. CONQA has helped our business leap to the next level in Quality reporting.
Signal & Hobbs trialed the CONQA system on these projects (The Glen Shopping Centre expansion project; Probuild Constructions and Orygen, The National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health; Kane Constructions) before rolling it out across all projects.
Conqa’s in App. Inspection & test records ensure specified materials are identified and recorded within the App, any unspecified material is captured at the delivery stage reducing the risk of sub-standard of defective products being installed.
Previously QA reports for progress claims would consume our site managers and back office administrators. The workflow included multiple people who would spend many hours each month compiling and submitting complex QA information. This included marked up plans, ITR’s, images from site and dairy notes. CONQA puts together all required information and provides QA reporting at the touch of a button."
