The Challenge

Construction requirements

To provide the client and their FM team accurate, approved, robust Hand Over information including Health & Safety File, O&M Manuals, Building Logbook and BREEAM Building User Guide, with automated Asset Register.

Operational requirements

To deliver validate relevant useable data in a standardized, easy to use format which can be easily updated throughout the building’s lifetime.

How we did it


Using client approved templates, Edocuments worked with the supply chain, professional team, and client to collect the data required for the project Hand Over Information.

Edocuments technical staff also produced the MEP O&M manuals on behalf of the MEP contractor ensuring compliance, accuracy, and consistency.


Using the built-in reporting tools, and with all reviews being carried out online, all stakeholders were kept fully informed with up-to-date progress from a project level down to asset level.

Key Outcomes and Lessons Learnt

By choosing to keep the project information live online, the client continues to have searchable, useable data that can be shared with their team
