As part of Mitie’s ongoing digital transformation, the Asite Platform will introduce new standardisation and industry best practices in alignment with ISO 19650 to propel Mitie to a new level of project delivery.

London, UK  (October 2021) – Mitie, the UK's leading facilities management company, will utilise the Asite Platform across its Mitie Projects business. Mitie works with a wide range of blue-chip private and public sector clients, delivering high profile projects across the UK, with a strong focus on sustainability and supporting the decarbonisation of Britain.

Asite will introduce a new digital construction management solution to support delivery across Mitie Projects. Recognising the importance of information management to the project value chain and the need for safe, high quality, and risk-free delivery, Asite will provide Mitie’s teams and clients with an easily accessible and collaborative platform. The platform will enable progress monitoring, project management, and quality control on all projects.

 

Pietro Leo, Asite VP of Operations - UK & Europe, said: 

Pietro Leo-1"Asite is excited to partner with Mitie and join them on their digitisation journey. Mitie is a trail-blazing organisation working across a range of sectors, including central and local government, defense, healthcare, and education. Their work sees them play an integral role in the maintenance and operation of some of the most essential assets in the UK.

We are thrilled to bring Asite onto these important projects and help Mitie take the next step in project management, improving operations not only for their organisation but also helping to provide a better service to their existing and future clients.

Their strong commitment to creating a better, more sustainable, and agile industry is a commitment we share, and we look forward to working closely together over the next three years to make this a reality.”

“We are delighted to be working with Asite, who were chosen as our preferred partner after an extensive procurement process. Mitie continues to lead the digital transformation of our industry through technology and the digitisation of our project capabilities is key to the growth strategy for Mitie Projects.

 Asite will enable us to achieve deeper digital collaboration with our customers, bringing the ‘science of service’ to our project operations as we strive to deliver the exceptional, every day.”

 

Asite has been awarded a three-year contract with Mitie Projects to drive improvements within its project management methodology and governance, as well as increasing collaboration across internal and external stakeholders.

Mitie Projects manages and delivers a wide range of building services and refit works across the commercial, retail and industrial industries, and in the public sector. Its in-house capabilities and specialist services include design, BIM, installation, procurement and project management, across a range of technical disciplines, with a strong focus on decarbonisation and sustainability.

The Asite Platform will introduce new digital processes and industry best practice, propelling Mitie to a new level of project delivery, which will support its work leading on large projects for new clients, while improving services for existing customers.

Mitie Projects will use the Asite Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solution, which showcases an integrated Common Data Environment (CDE), to enable lean delivery of projects and streamline information management. The robust and innovative solutions will also improve the speed and accuracy of cost controls, improve visibility and productivity, and introduce better project co-ordination. 

The organisation will also benefit from a wider range of Asite products and features, such as collaborative BIM (cBIM) and Adoddle Field for Site. With Adoddle Field for Site, on-site users can access the latest project information and have the ability to immediately raise and create site tasks, such as defects and snags, whilst on the move.
