University of Central Asia Constructs New Campuses with CONJECT’s Support

Date: 24 August 2015
The construction of the University of Central Asia’s (UCA) three campuses in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan is being supported by CONJECT, a leading supplier of cloud software for the whole life management of built assets.
 
In 2012, UCA recognised that with project members located across different countries and time zones, that a structured and centralised information management platform was essential to ensure project teams could work with the very latest design and drawing information. This approach would improve efficiency and reduce the risk of costly mistakes and delays.
 
CONJECT’s web-based conjectPM application was configured to suit UCA’s project workflows requirements and deployed in December 2012 to support the construction of UCA’s first campus in Naryn, Kyrgyzstan. The project involves the construction of an academic building, housing classrooms, laboratories, a library, dining hall and faculty residences, and two dormitory buildings. The campus is scheduled to open in 2016. 
 
 
To date, the conjectPM system has managed the distribution of over 46,000 documents between over 40 users in 18 different companies. The project has proceeded on-time and within budget.
 
The conjectPM system is also being deployed to support the construction of UCA’s second and third campuses in Khorog, Tajikistan and Tekeli, Kazakhstan, scheduled to open in 2017 and 2020, respectively.

Carmel Feeney, Project Controller for UCA said:
“It was very important that we chose a system that could be easily and effectively used by our diverse range of project members. conjectPM has proven to be useful; everyone is using it, so the latest and historical information is available in an instant. CONJECT’s support has been critical to our ability to roll out our construction on schedule.”
 
CONJECT Regional Director Dr Asif Sharif added:
“We are proud to work with UCA and to support their mission to promote the social and economic development of Central Asia. The conjectPM solution is the ideal platform to help construct these new university campuses, improving collaboration and efficiency between the project delivery team.”
