New Fire Station

New fire station as part of safety services hub for Hasselt (Belgium)

Fire stations need to be compliant with many requirements and demands. think project! helped to create workflows and processes for the construction of the new fire station in Hasselt, Belgium, audit-proof, and therefore, waterproof.

Project profile

For the construction of the new fire station in Hasselt, Belgium, stakeholders established a temporary organisation, consisting of construction companies Democo, Kumpen and STRABAG. The perfect example of a project with employees of several companies who need to be able to work together – not to mention stakeholders like the architect and client. The think project! platform was put in place to put this collaboration on the right track.

think project! was used as a means for document sharing and approval workflows – processes that used to be handled via paper, email, and online file sharing websites, including the insecurities about whether everyone effectively received said email. Using think project! as a document sharing platform provides unambiguity and uniformity, making sure that all stakeholders have the latest and correct document version.

The platform supports approval workflows as well. At the start, plans for cooling, ventilation and the electricity grid were not final. During construction, new plans were continuously being added through think project!, after which all stakeholders could approve them. This ensures everyone is working with the latest version of the latest approved plans.

Buildings such as fire stations need to meet many requirements. With think project!, it is easy to determine if these requirements are met. Should any legal problems arise after delivery, it is immediately traceable who did what, and when, so there is no room for discussion. This way, think project! helps make workflows completely waterproof and audit-proof.
