Founded in 1969, Vancouver-based Adera has built a reputation in wood frame residential construction. SmartWood™, its proprietary Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) material, further builds on innovations in energy, safety and sound efficiency. Adera used SmartWood™ on recent projects including Crest, a 179-unit residential project in North Vancouver.
Adera needed a project management solution that was capable of tracking the complex Crest project and sharing timely information with internal and external stakeholders, especially its subcontractor partners. Following completion of the Crest project, Adera estimated that by using Procore, its efficiency during the framing process improved by 30 per cent. Moreover, Adera estimates savings of approximately $1,500 per unit using Procore when Crest was compared to other past projects. The savings stemmed from holding trades accountable regarding deficiency work.
The company successfully managed the construction of the project with Procore, including scheduling tradespeople, monitoring safety and managing RFIs. It was also able to leverage the platform to show government partners the high professional standard of its project management. With Procore, the Adera team supports its development side with greater transparency and more data than would otherwise be available.
“Agility is one of our core values. It defines Adera’s work over the last 50 years, and it will be part of our legacy for the next 50 years,” said Rocky Sethi, COO, Adera. “As a company, we pride ourselves on thinking far ahead with every project we take on, so our partnership with Procore was a natural step that made sense and helps us work more efficiently. We’re both on the leading edge of what we’re doing, and that’s why we’re working together.”
“Adera is a forward-thinking company whose projects have provided beautiful housing in British Columbia for decades,” said Jas Saraw, Vice President, Canada, Procore. “They set an example for building for the future and making construction more efficient and sustainable. We’re honoured to help Adera achieve its goals.”
Adera plans to roll out Procore’s financial tools in the future, and further integrate the platform into how it manages projects.
