EllisDon Takes Top CIPA Honours

EllisDon’s EdgeBuilder is a custom, Web-enabled project management tool built by the company to manage all aspects of a construction project. It provides a comprehensive working environment, including document management, knowledge management and workflow management, that enables project staff, developers, architects, consultants and sub-contractors to all work collaboratively via the Internet.
