Greater structure for complex processes
MetNord JV is a joint venture (JV) between two international construction contractors, Züblin and HOCHTIEF. The JV was contracted to implement two mega-infrastructure projects in Copenhagen as part of the CITYRINGEN metro project.
Due to their inherent size, scope and complexity, major infrastructure projects pose significant challenges for all participants. To bring more structure to the organisation of complex processes in plan and document verification and approvals, MetNord JV opted for think project!.

By implementing the platform Züblin has been able to improve their day-to-day communications. Further, they can now better arrange and review plan statuses including their entire documentation histories. It’s also easier for them to meet both internal and external requirements for electronic document management within the joint venture.
This project requires compliance with very conservative communications and documentation standards – during verification processes, e.g., Züblin mapped these standards within think project!, enabling them to hold comprehensive documentation of all verification and approval processes throughout both the planning and execution stages.

think project! supports design management in Züblin project
Together with clothing manufacturer BestsellerA/S and logistic partner TGW, Züblin is constructing a new logistic centre in Haderslev, Denmark as a partnering project.
|Total gross floor space: 48,570 m²|
|Construction sum: 36.56 million euros|
|Planned completion: March 2012|
The construction of a logistic centre, consisting of two high-rack warehouses, a sorting terminal, loading terminal, technology building and outdoor facilities, is planned.
Individual, prompt handling of drawing management
To handle the provision and sending of drawings and plans, as well as the creation of plan and distribution lists, promptly and on an individual basis, Züblin decided to use the online project collaboration platform think project!.
With the support of the project platform, large volumes of data can now be sent easily, and thanks to the digitalized sending of design documents, practically no more hard copies are required, saving time and costs. In addition, the encoding of design documents has led to a structured method of working that makes well-organised drawing management possible. Every drawing or plan received and sent is documented, and the process therefore remains traceable.
