Following a successful trial software startup BaseStone has secured a long-term contract with Crossrail contractor Costain Skanska Joint Venture.

BaseStone is a tablet and web-based review tool for engineers and architects, which digitises the drawing review process on construction projects and allows for better collaboration.

Trials revealed possible cost savings of approximately 60% compared to traditional paper-based review methods.

Alex Siljanovski, BaseStone’s CEO said:

“BaseStone are leading the way to a more efficient construction industry and this is a real demonstration of the power of collaboration between government-backed infrastructure projects, key industry partners and digital startups.”

Ben Feltham, BIM manager for CSJV, added:

“We conducted a trial with BaseStone for Crossrail’s innovation programme, Innovate18, to develop a system which enables us to efficiently pull drawings from the clients system for digital redlining and snagging.

“The trial delivered a tangible 60% saving when using this technology in the field. This has now led to further developments, which has enabled us to agree a licence agreement.

“The relationship has allowed a great deal of flexibility and this has helped us to drive digital capture of construction information, which we believe will drive a more efficient asset handover.”

BaseStone recently won the Best Alpha Startup award at Web Summit and has previously won the London Entrepreneurs Challenge and the UCL Advances Bright Ideas Award.
