Asta award winners

We are proud that Asta Powerproject continues to be a part of many award-winning projects:

The new campus for the Central St. Martin’s College of Art and Design part of BAM’s £176.00 million Eastern Goods Yard project for developer Argent, a major regeneration programme of the King’s Cross area of London. This project received multiple awards ranging from pioneering architecture to the Mayor’s award for project excellence.

“Using Asta Powerproject meant that our planners could work on the project in unison, regardless of their location, have the same visibility across the programme and get an accurate view of updates and progress to all areas.” – Mick Davis, BAM’s Senior Planner.

Geoffrey Osborne Ltd’s award-winning Construction Manager Malcolm Emmerson of Geoffrey Osborne Ltd. attributes his successful West Thames College project to the scheduling and reporting functionality of Asta Powerproject. As he says: “The software enables you to establish where you actually are and see which areas need to be speeded up – without the software this would be impossible. It was absolutely critical to us winning the award.” Malcolm’s award was won for outstanding management in the New Build & Refurbishment £40 to £100 million category.
