Wates Group is one of the UK’s leading privately owned construction, residential development, and property services companies. For 125 years, the company has been innovating in its field, making great strides in sustainability and the application of new technologies to streamline operations and improve workflows.

In January 2021, the company began work on two buildings that are part of a large mixed-use residential, commercial, and retail campus spanning more than 43 acres in Leeds–and the first NABERS-certified constructions in the UK outside of London. This prestigious designation is reserved for construction projects that meet the highest standards of efficiency with regard to energy, water, waste management, and more.

Wates Group has used OpenSpace on this project since day one. Wates Group Section Managers perform daily site walks to verify progress, create a chronological visual history of the build, and ensure NABERS standards are met. The digital panoramas OpenSpace creates provide an intuitive, Google Street-like view of the project for simple and quick verification.

With OpenSpace, Wates Group has enjoyed 15 times faster documentation and 10 times faster verification by Quantity Supervisors. In addition, the company has been able to create accountability across all teams to resolve issues quickly, mitigate risk, increase collaboration, and help the project attain best-in-class ratings for green building.
