Headquartered in Greater Copenhagen, Denmark, Hoffmann has been operating in the construction industry for more than a 100 years. They provide services in the areas of civil and engineering works, new build projects, renovations, and installations. GenieBelt is being used in the renovation of 378 apartments, which includes the replacement of facades, windows, doors, bathrooms, balconies, and roof terraces. The project is taking place in Vildbanegård, 18 kilometers outside of Copenhagen, Denmark.
A definite time benefit from GenieBelt
Typically in construction, 20-30% of your time is spent delegating daily and/or weekly tasks to construction team.
“We minimise the number of visits I get from workers at the office because now they are able to keep updated by themselves. And the best part is, if deviations to the plan should occur, I can quickly set a new date,” says Shoukat Naeimi, Project Manager at Hoffmann.
GenieBelt has also made it easy for workers on-site to be kept up-to-date on any changes to the plan.
“Through GenieBelt, you are able to make updates instantly, so the workers can see what is ready to be made and what is not, so they don’t need to turn up needlessly to the site and waste their time. If something is not ready to be made, they can just start working on another task instead of running back and forth for no reason,” says Shoukat Naeimi.
With GenieBelt, you get an overview of the project at the office, instead of you going out to inspect every single activity that is going on, which takes a lot of time. From where I sit, I can estimate when a specific task needs to be done, I can adapt the plan accordingly, and every worker has an updated version
An overview of the entire project
Working on a renovating 378 apartments is not easy and one can often lose track of project progress. GenieBelt has provided Hoffmann with full project overview in real time.
“With GenieBelt, you get an overview of the project at the office, instead of you going out to inspect every single activity that is going on, which takes a lot of time. From where I sit, I can estimate when a specific task needs to be done, I can adapt the plan accordingly, and every worker has an updated version,” says Shoukat Naeimi.
Standardised work processes for Hoffmann
GenieBelt’s copy project template feature enables managers to copy the programme from one project and duplicate it to other projects. This enables people to bring standardisation and predictability to their projects. This feature turned out to be very valuable for Hoffmann.
“In the beginning, you are able to make a detailed timetable with GenieBelt, which should be used on a project, but after that, you are able to extend that to other projects. I can just copy tasks, which saves me time,” says Shoukat Naeimi.
