Crossland Construction Company, Inc. is one of the largest and highly-ranked construction companies in America. The company’s headquarters is in Columbus, Kansas in addition to eight regional offices and over 850 employees located throughout the US. Overall Crossland acts as general contractor for large building projects. Such as hospitals, schools, office, retail, sporting facilities among other categories.
The general contractor on large-scale building projects certainly requires continuous complex collaboration and coordination between internal and external stakeholders. On time, on budget with only highest quality standards is what they call “The Crossland Way.” The company’s IT infrastructure, which blends internal file share and cloud services, helps to achieve this standard.
The Challenge: File Share Cloud Sync
The simultaneous planning and execution of numerous major projects is an enormous communication challenge. Erica Christiansen, Crossland’s Database Administrator explained, “There are a tremendous number of moving parts in the mix; over 550 internal people in addition to scores of sub-contractors and suppliers across the country.” The challenge for Crossland was how to continually synchronize an extremely complex matrix of documents across this enterprise, making the latest documents immediately available to the right stakeholders.
