Our Mission – Founder’s message

Since the inception of Envision in 2010 – we have seen many opportunities to improve the way in which complex construction projects are delivered providing benefits for owners, engineers, constructors and the whole supply chain alike. At the heart of these opportunities is a focus on improving project performance and improving project delivery practices.

Whilst Envision has evolved from where it started, a result of responding to the industry needs and feedback, the essence of our mission remains unchanged. We clearly understand where we fit in the project delivery technology ecosystem, where we add value and what we stand for.

Our mission

At Envision we enable better construction project performance, improving the working lives of those involved and making the world a better place.

Put simply we

Better construction project performance

We have been lucky enough to be involved in the delivery of many landmark projects that will benefit both this and future generations. Ultimately construction project delivery is about developing infrastructure to meet the needs of communities. It lifts communities out of poverty, provides clean drinking water, opens up the opportunity for trade moving goods for suppliers to consumers, enables transportation and delivers energy and many other benefits. It is a privilege to be part of this and in all we do, we seek to contribute and be involved in enriching the world we live in for this and future generations.

We are privileged to be enabling the delivery of projects and also to have the opportunity to improve the working lives of those people involved in these projects. From the owner’s team receiving reports based on data captured daily in Envision, through to the many delivery roles within the construction contractors such as project managers, engineers, supervisors, leading hands, administrators, finance, commercial, quantity surveyors and the subcontractors and their personnel.

Valuing the importance of work-life balance, we strive to make it easier for others to plan and complete their day’s work within their working hours so that employees can go home to their families, minimising working long hours to get the job done.

We strive to make project performance transparent and efficient so that extensive monetary losses can be avoided, and companies can deliver better value for their clients and returns for their shareholders. In recent years there have been numerous examples of companies delivering projects on narrow margins that have gone to the wall – with suppliers and workers not paid for work done. We aim to make this a problem of the past with Envision’s real-time data used to support effective planning and decision making.
