CONSTRUCTION DEFECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE

CATCheckpoint

Defect Management

Defect identification and remedial management are serious problems for most construction projects worldwide, whether it’s a house or a high rise. The time and cost impact on main contractors, consultants and subcontractors are high and typically there is no budget or if there is, it is unrealistically small. Construction defect management is a cost overrun on most projects for all parties and an ongoing source of aggravation. If remedial management was priced into a tender then a job would never be won. CATCheckpoint is your solution.

CATCheckpoint is a defect identification and remedial management system for construction projects. There is a commercial and residential version so no job is too small or too big therefore practical and affordable for any size of project, and any size of company.

Why CATCheckpoint?

Defects identification and remedial management are a serious problem for most construction projects worldwide whether it’s a house or a high rise. The time and cost impact on main contractors, consultants and subcontractors is high and typically there is no budget or if there is, it is unrealistic. Remedial management is a cost overrun on most projects for all parties and an on-going source of aggravation.

We appreciate that a vast amount of time gets caught up in remedial management and CATCheckpoint is designed to minimise that time commitment. Notifications up and down the chain ensure re-inspections are no longer completed without confirmation from the contractors first. Progress and performance can be monitored from the comfort of your desk, no more wasted time checking incomplete works.

If remedial management was priced into a tender then a job would never be won

Software is only as good as the practical and hands on knowledge of the people who designed it. This system was designed by construction professionals who have documented thousands of defects and are experts with the challenges of getting contractors to finish remedial work. This tool strips hundreds of hours from an arduous administration process.

About CATCheckpoint

The master web-based system has an Android phone companion that allows you to identify and update defects from site. The web system gives you reports, analysis, detail and updates. It’s awesome as it allows you to know where all actions are at a glance from the comfort of your desk.

Practical and affordable for any size of project and any size of company

Setting up a new project is as simple as defining the project location structure and assigning list types, the hard work of defect list compilation has been done for the typical items as sadly it does not change that much from job to job, it could be said that it is tediously repetitive.

The contractual relationship between a main contractor and their subcontractors is respected so inspections generated by the main contractor remain private. There is no potential for direct communication with a subcontractor by anyone other than the main contractor.

Once you have completed an inspection notify the subcontractor, this tells them how many defects you have identified and when you require remedial works to be completed. Now sit back and relax and monitor the subcontractors progress from the comfort of your desk. Once they send confirmation that they are complete a re-inspection can be organised. You can track any additional inspections and on charge if appropriate.

Other functions include:
  • adding a note or requesting clarification
  • updating the remedial status on the fly from your phone
  • notifying the subcontractor when all defects have been re-inspected
  • view the subcontractors performance statistics including turnaround time (a powerful tool for future work discussions)

Re-Inspect & Update Status

Update the status as you reinspect on the fly from your phone. The subcontractors can upload a photo of the completed remedial work to save you going back for a look, handy.

Communication Between The Parties

Create a notification to the consultants or the subcontractors whether its one to one or one to many.  Each recipient can reply to a communication that they are included in and privacy is maintained with your recipients as they can only see conversations that are relevant. This is a great feature and keeps all communication relating to Remedial Management in the same place and appropriately confidential (or not).

CAT Checkpoint is an inspection and remedial management system for construction projects that utilises the Web and Mobile Phones. CAT Checkpoint is practical and affordable for any size of project and any size of company and provides full audit trail.

A new inspection is created by entering the inspection name and the date you require all remedial work to be completed by. At the top of each screen there is a filter panel showing the inspection type, location and area. This information holds until you change it, allowing you to quickly enter multiple defects for an area without having to repeat the same information.

There are three compulsory fields which are element (wall, ceiling, floor etc), position and description. Select a defect item from the comprehensive list for that element. If the Build Sets have been set up well then you should be able to get through an inspection with little or no typing. Add a photo where clarification is required, Photos are instantly part of the record if using the Phone App. No need to save, rename and upload. There is also a note field if you need to add additional information.

Other functions include:
  • adding a note or requesting clarification
  • creating and responding to a notification
  • updating the remedial status on the fly from your phone
  • notify the main contractor when inspections are complete
  • view the main contractors performance stats including turnaround time

Notify Contractors About Inspections

Once you have completed an inspection notify the contractor, this tells them how many defects you have identified and when you require defects to be completed.

Once they send you confirmation that they are completed a re-inspection can be organised and you can track any additional inspections and on charge where relevant.

SIMPLE SET-UP

Really Smart

The project set-up is simple and targeted, with the hard work of list compilation being done for all of the typical items. Sadly, the defect items do not change much from job to job – in fact, most construction defect management is boringly repetitive. Simply define the project location structure and select relevant lists for the build type. The objective is for you to do an inspection without having to type, and instead selecting relevant items and taking a photo for clarification. Really smart.
