The Pilot Project
The data for the buildings were stored in both soft and hard copies – a combination of paper and electronic files in various locations that proved difficult to access. COGNICA made its name on a similar project for Severn Trent Water in the late 1990s, so we assembled our highly specialised team and travelled to the Chelmsford campus. Once on-site, we began a pilot exercise in the postgraduate medical institute building, involving the collation of all available electronic and paper documentation. Our desk-based analysts then audited, sorted and indexed the collated data to provide an easy-access USB version of the building’s operation and maintenance manuals.
