A team of Quiet Storm colleagues got dolled up for an evening of glitz and glamour as we were delighted to be honoured by our longstanding client, Davidsons Homes, at its recent ‘Best of Davidsons’ 2020 awards evening.
The event saw staff, suppliers, subcontractors and consultants gather to celebrate their achievements.
We were unveiled as Davidsons’ Consultant of the Year for 2019, for our work on several projects, including the development of its ‘Vision’ project management system.
The online tool collates information about each stage of every project it undertakes, giving Davidsons a real-time view of where each one is at.
Quiet Storm Managing Director Steve Megson said: “We’ve enjoyed a great working relationship with Davidsons over many years, so it was great to be recognised for our contribution with this award.”
Almost 600 people attended the awards ceremony, held at Athena in Leicester, and were entertained by comedian and Britain’s Got Talent finalist Kev Orkian.
The event raised £60,000 for the cardiology unit at Glenfield Hospital.
Davidsons is a long-standing client of Quiet Storm and approached us to ask for help in developing a real-time system which would provide an overview of each stage of the build
process for every individual project.
Building projects usually slip because there is a time-lag between an issue being identified and how it is escalated upwards in order to get a decision about how to resolve it.
In response, we developed ‘Vision’, a project management system which covers every element of the process, through to handover.
The online tool collates information about each stage of a project, giving the company a real-time view of where each one is at.
It also highlights any faults, issues or challenges as and when they arise, escalating them through the appropriate channels so they can get resolved as quickly as possible.
Vision streamlines communication and efficiency by providing evidence-based data to enable project managers to make the right decisions, faster.
It also gives senior management full visibility of each project, to help identify training needs and resource shortages.
James Wilson, Managing Director at Davidsons Homes, said: “This is the third year in a row that we have held our ‘Best of Davidsons’ event, and each year it just gets bigger and better.
“We are delighted that we can use the opportunity to recognise our fantastic staff and suppliers while raising money for a very worthwhile cause.
“Quiet Storm was a well-deserved winner in our supplier awards. “They have consistently demonstrated an innovative approach to helping us overcome
business process challenges during a period of growth.”
