aboutFounded by directors Dominic McColl and Jerad Smith, McColl Smith has cemented itself as a powerhouse in Melbourne’s commercial construction space. They showcase their quality-focused delivery with a portfolio encompassing the eduction, hospitality, medical, and health sectors to name a few. Despite taking on multiple large scale projects across the city, the directors remain quite hands-on to ensure each project exceeds the client’s expectations.
the challenge
Managing a comprehensive safety, quality and project management system across many large projects was difficult to manage using spreadsheets, email and paper.
No central place for photosProject updates were done via email, making it difficult to track site progress
Paper-based safety systemRunning a comprehensive safety system via paper is very time consuming and prone to error
Complexity of other solutionsSoftware with complex training requirements is difficult to get engagement from site managers
the solution
BuildPass has provided a central hub for photos uploaded as part of site diaries, safety inspections and quality inspections.

Site DiariesSite managers can easily add a site diary each day from their mobile phone. The weather and site attendance are automatically filled in, and images go into an image gallery for Dom and Jerad to review. The calendar view makes for easy navigation.
Image GalleryAll photos uploaded to BuildPass appear in the Image Gallery. The team have an accurate timeline of the project based on the photos that are uploaded each day. This ensure projects are on track and allows them to get on top of any issues early.
Approved Safety SystemBeing an ISO accredited builder, it was important for McColl Smith to configure BuildPass to work exactly to their needs. Using the drag-and-drop template editor, they were able to easily configure BuildPass and get up and running in days.

Digitising site safety documentation from what is traditionally heavily paper based has led to a marked increase in efficiency and has provided great visibility of onsite activities via the BuildPass platform.
