Länsimetro vision – building the word’s safest subway by using uniform safety and quality management tool
Customer Story - Länsimetro
Länsimetro is a company jointly owned by the cities of Helsinki and Espoo and which task is to build, own, maintain and develop the West Metro system in Espoo, Finland. Länsimetro’s vision is creating the world's safest metro services by responsibly and transparently sharing the project progress in the real time. To achieve this goal, they chose Congrid solution as a digital documentation and quality management partner. The construction work of the 7 kilometres second phase: Matinkylä - Kivenlahti was completed ahead of the schedule in September 2022.
– The biggest challenge in such a large-scale construction project is the coordination of schedules, timeliness and the large number of people performing the work. Up to 5-6 people can be involved in one safety or quality inspection. 6 main contractors and over 20 subcontractors working on the site and thousands of different tasks created for one part of the project, comments Janne Tuoma, Länsimetro’s Director of Construction.
In the second phase, Länsimetro wanted to include a uniform system where information would flow smoothly from the one handling the task to another one. Congrid software, which specializes in documentation and quality management of the construction project, was chosen as a partner, and its system was integrated into Länsimetro’s real-time data sharing.
– I would estimate that almost 1,000 people have participated in the documentation. In one project, which is one metro station, up to 200 different users were processing tasks and 20 000 photos documenting the project – all together resulting in more than 100,000 photos, Saku Vuori, Congrid’s Product manager, explains the large scale of the project.
