Based in Swindon, just off junction 16 of the M4, COGNICA is a long established company providing comprehensive information management services.

COGNICA takes seriously the requirement to manage and deliver hand-over documentation. Whether your project is a high specification office, a water treatment works or a school we know you expect your information to be prepared in a professional manner.

Our mission is to ensure that documentation and information is both relevant and accurate, that it is delivered on-time and is easily accessible for project teams, building owners and operators.

At COGNICA it is recognised that every project is important and that individual customers will have specific information requirements.

COGNICA is proud to have established an impressive portfolio of customers. We work for the majority of the UK’s leading construction companies on a wide range of projects delivering nationwide. COGNICA also works directly for Clients, Owners and Operators of buildings.

Our History

In the late 1990s Severn Trent Water faced a growing number of operational and maintenance problems on its asset base. Many of its long service workforce were reaching retirement, and crucial local-knowledge of plant and procedures was being lost as a result. At the same time, the Operational and Maintenance (O&M) manuals were continuing to degrade, as pages became lost or damaged.

Severn Trent Water urgently required an efficient system for the management of such important data for its operational sites.

COGNICA proposed NaviGo, an electronic O&M manual system to manage Severn Trent Water’s information. All documentation was converted into, or obtained in, electronic format and entered into NaviGo. The documentation was organised in such a way that it could be related to specific assets or processes within the system.

COGNICA used this experience to offer practical information management services across a range of construction projects, adapting to the needs of each customer by listening to their requirements.

COGNICA has developed a first class team of project managers, a structured collation service and an online portal that successfully manages information directly from the project supply chain.
