Balfour Beatty Procure21+ opts for Sypro NEC3 management platform

15 Nov 11 Balfour Beatty Procure21+ has selected Sypro Management Limited to provide its web-based platform for managing NEC3 contract processes across its healthcare schemes delivered under the Procure21+ framework.

Sypro's platform has been used on 65 Procure21 schemes to date, while the Balfour Beatty Group, including Mansell, has a significant share of the UK healthcare market, so far securing eleven Procure21+ schemes with a total value of over £140m, including projects for clients such as Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The Sypro online project management system provides a single repository for key contract-related communications, helping project team members identify and manage Early Warnings, Compensation Events and other contract-related processes such as monthly Programme reviews. Among other benefits, Sypro gives a real-time visual forecast of the projected final account and completion date, while providing construction managers with detailed reporting tools.

Keith Hayes, Procure21+ Principal Supply Chain Partner (PSCP) Lead at Balfour Beatty said:

“We are moving from NEC2 to NEC3 on the new Framework, and must ensure we adopt an auditable approach to contract management. Clause amendments and new timescales for response mean there is more pressure on project managers to focus on contract compliance. Sypro provides an intuitive, robust and compliant system that will meet our people's needs.”

Ian Ford, Procure21+ Framework Director for Balfour Beatty Construction commented:

“After implementing Sypro, the feedback from our team has been nothing but positive. Sypro improves clarity of communication, making P21+ notifications and user actions clearly visible, improving efficiency.”

Simon Hunt, Director of Sypro Management said:

“We have worked hard to provide a P21+-specific version of Sypro that users find easy to use. Working with Balfour Beatty on their new schemes is a fantastic move forward for our system. Sypro has already been identified for use on £400m worth of projects within P21+ and we are engaging with other PSCPs on the framework.”
