Procore, Cheops, ihub & Lentune
ADC has been using Procore across all new projects since 2017. We use Procore all at different stages throughout the life cycle of construction from ECI (Early Contractor Involvment) and tenders right through to post construction defects period. We have found Procore to be an invaluable administration system for recording and reporting on our projects.
Procore is an online collaboration tool that allows all parties to have access to the latest information in real time with a smart user interface. Even by having teams in multiple locations around New Zealand or the world it allows improved project efficiency by streamlining and mobilising project communications and documentation. The real time data and accessibility minimizes costly risks and delays to the project.
ihub is a tracking software that we use to track the location of our equipment. This information is available through the ihub app which means that any of our staff on site can join the app to find out where a needed piece of equipment is located.
This app covers:
Cheops is construction management software program that manages the financials for the project.
This system covers:
Lentune is a accounts payable automation (APA) tool on a web-based platform. Lentune APA enables a paperless work environment with shorter invoice processing times and greater visibility and control of our business. APA saves us time and reduces costs, by streamlining our whole process in one simple platform.

Our company has processes for inspections and testing for the quality of workmanship and also the delivery of materials and equipment. We pride ourselves in the delivery of the highest standards, and this is achieved by our quality management system that we have in place to ensure our inspections and testing is being completed.
The quality and timely delivery of project information is a key factor in ensuring that ADC projects are a success. Poor quality, late of out of date information can lead to delays, non-recoverable costs and rework that could have been avoided if Project teams were working from the most up-to-date and reviewed information available.
Over the last few years, ADC has invested in systems such as Procore and Cheops to ensure the our project teams can access the latest revisions of drawings and project information; how ever there can still be issues with information that has not been properly co-ordinated, leading to unforeseen and costly errors on site.
For these reasons, ADC has committed to invest in a new industry recognised technology called Building Information Modelling (BIM). BIM focuses on the consultant supply chain, creating virtual three-dimensional models that encompass the consultant’s specialty i.e. an architectural model, a structural model, a services model and a civil engineering model.
These models can then be brought together to create a true representation of the actual build (a co-ordinated model) which is then tested in a virtual environment for compliance to ensure that these unforeseen issues during the production period can be avoided.
ADC believe all projects should be built in the virtual world before we arrive on site, to ensure we have ironed out any issues and the build goes as soundly as possible.
ADC works with the latest software and project management systems; this enables us to communicate between all parties within our company effectively regardless of where we are located.
We use MSP on all our projects to provide a detailed, trackable, robust programme. At ADC planning is the key part of what we do and we believed in stress testing our strategies to ensure we have a robust plan. In turn this is tracked as a rescheduled baseline programme to assist in the successful delivery of the project.
