When the detail matters, it’s all in the datasheets.
Helping to ensure your standards are delivered on standard means providing enough of the right information, at the right time. Now, with Data Sheets, Volvo can ensure all parties are briefed before the building work starts.
No one likes surprises. Especially the expensive kind associated with design and build programmes. And it’s often when there wasn’t enough detail in the original documentation that these surface, and then it’s too late.
In order to minimise this, we created a complete set of Data Sheets to detail all the key information needed to cost and build a new Volvo Workshop (as an integral part of the new ‘VRE’ retail standards).
These have been issued to construction service contractors as part of the Outline Specifications since early 2016 and have already resulted in eliminating all the main contract issues - as well as accruing significant cost savings and reducing overruns.
The Datasheets are now delivered via a microsite so as to eliminate the need for emailing the files.
