Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) is redeveloping University Station near the University of Birmingham to reduce overcrowding and congestion at the 43-year-old station. They wanted to widen the platforms and construct new buildings and facilities. However, the complex upgrade required a single document management platform that could accommodate all the information while making it accessible to multiple participants and stakeholders. They sought a connected data environment to complete the project ahead of the Commonwealth Games in 2022, where the university will host events.
Realizing that their existing SharePoint-based workflows were going to be insufficient, TfWM chose ProjectWise to host and manage their documents for the project. Its connected data environment allowed the team to collaborate effectively and store data in a way that gave them the confidence that information was always accurate, up to date, and available to all. The project is on track to be completed in time for the Commonwealth Games, which will bring thousands of people to the area and significantly benefit the local economy.
