Probuild Case Study “We saved time spent on defects by 96% using DLP Manager”

In its recently completed luxury apartment block of 250 units, several owners noticed hairline cracks or ‘crazing’ of their bathroom sinks.

Probuild Constructions utilised DLP Manager to survey residents and investigate whether the problem was isolated or systemic (throughout every sink, in every unit). Once the list was formulated, 125 sinks were identified as requiring replacement.

A case study conducted by Probuild revealed that compared with their previous method of handling defects, switching to DLP Manager enabled them to maximise efficiency – saving administrative time spent on defects by 96%, resulting in an 86% cost savings.
