Mulbury has made its project management simple, well structured and time saving
Based in Manchester and established in 2010. Mulbury is a mixed use developer who has completed £86m worth in project value so far, Mulbury has grown into a multi million and award-winning business and is now made up of five divisions: Homes, Care, Living, City and Land.
One project that is being worked on at the moment, is a £30m development of 143 apartments on a 0,24 hectare site at the junction of Blossom Street and Great Ancoats Street. It will consist

of two separate buildings, one eight-storeys tall and one seven-storeys tall with 49 one-bedroom apartments, 90 two-bedroom apartments, one three-bedroom apartment, and three townhouses.
To help Mulbury out with tracking the construction process, the company has decided to make use of a digital tool. The digital tool is GenieBelt, which have brought along things like simplicity, structure, and time savings for the project management.
For the head of Mulbury City division, James Alderson, who is a civil engineer by background and with over 25 years of experience in the construction industry, believes GenieBelt reduces the headaches since previous to GenieBelt it was a nightmare trying to find out who had access to the relevant information.
GenieBelt creates structure for their information
When working on a big project, Mulbury is used to working together with different participants and trying to keep track of what the progress of the projects is. GenieBelt is able to help Mulbury structure all of the project participants and create an overview of the project. “I like the ability to be able to structure project participants into companies and teams. And I like the permission controls I have as an administrator and how easy it is to change for each user. I also like how easy it is to add and remove a user from having access to the system.”
Moreover, that means Mulbury is able to have all of its contract documents stored at one place and whenever a new company needs access, it can simply be added into GenieBelt. “We have all our contract documents stored on GenieBelt. When a new company needs access, we simply add them into GenieBelt. Any changes they make or even when they view a file is all recorded within the audit trail, so we know if people have received the information.”
What caught Mulbury’s interest for GenieBelt?
Mulbury is a ambitious, rapidly growing and dynamic business and therefore to match that speed and scale, they needed a tool that could keep up and scale with them. Most importantly the biggest plus of GenieBelt for James Alderson the Division leader was the simplicity.
“The simplicity and ease of use of the system. It means we can get on with our work, without having to use too much thinking time when wanting to get simple tasks done.”
I don’t have the headaches I used to have when we would use dropbox and I had to find out who had access and who did not to our files.
