Flynn Management & Contractors (Flynn MC) is a forward-looking construction solutions provider that works across a variety of sectors, including commercial, retail, leisure and hospitality, life science, healthcare and industrial.
Flynn MC faced a challenge in retaining its flexibility and responsiveness as it scales the business. It realised that it needed to find a new solution that would help it to continue to work on new and exciting projects around Ireland and abroad and so approached Novi, the proactive information security and managed services provider, for its assistance.download case study
Novi worked closely with the contractor to facilitate real-time access to the most up-to-date information for its employees, regardless of their location. As well as this, Flynn MC was eager to utilise Building Information Modelling (BIM) on its projects to improve efficiency on its construction sites.
To ensure that Flynn MC is capable of running the resource intensive BIM application smoothly, Novi opted to migrate the contractor’s infrastructure to a hybrid cloud environment consisting of secure and scalable on-premise infrastructure and Microsoft’s cloud.
Novi also worked closely with the contractor to improve its level of security and protect its systems from advanced threats
Following the successful completion of this project, Flynn MC now has a high-performance and flexible IT infrastructure that enables it to quickly mobilise resources for new projects anywhere in the world. Novi’s implementation of the hybrid cloud environment for Flynn MC has enabled its employees to access the most up-to-date information while on-site. The company‘s offices in Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Denmark are now completely interlinked, giving employees full access to all files for every project and enabling them to collaborate more effectively.
The new IT infrastructure implemented by Novi has also facilitated the use of BIM across projects. This has reduced the contractor’s dependence on offline drawings and provided it with the ability to conduct virtual walkthroughs of new projects that can aid the identification and resolution of potentially costly clashes before they occur.
“The work carried out by Novi during this project has revolutionised how we do business. Flynn MC often has around 20 projects in progress at any given time, which requires a huge amount of multitasking, and having access to the latest technologies such as BIM has resulted in better quality projects delivered faster for our customers.” Derek Murphy, Financial Director. Flynn
Flynn MC chooses to outsource all of its IT needs instead of maintaining an in-house IT team, recognising the benefit of deep expertise in this area. By collaborating with a technology partner that has the capacity, proactivity and right cultural fit, Flynn MC (and their clients) gets the most benefits and protection from the systems that it has in place. This was one of the primary reasons that Flynn MC chose Novi as its strategic partner in this area. Novi provides a structured, proactive service that allows Flynn MC’s team to focus on ongoing construction projects.
One of Novi’s expert team routinely visits Flynn MC’s offices to assess, update and maintain the company’s systems and ensure that its IT infrastructure is working at maximum efficiency.
