Project management software created specifically for subcontractors by subcontractors
Kahua is leveling the playing field. Our Subcontractor Project Management solution connects field to office, organizes documents, and streamlines communication. Improve efficiency and reduce risk to profitably deliver superior project outcomes and grow your business.
All Your Documents in One Place.
Proper file management is critical to your efficiency and project success. Three-ring binders just don’t cut it anymore, as field personnel need the most up-to-date information to make the right decisions. Documents also need to be in a centralized location so nothing gets missed.
Kahua’s File Manager enables all project team members to store, archive, protect and share your project files. Upload and access files from desktop or mobile devices. Automatic version control ensures that all project team members stay on the same page.
The submittal review process is critical to ensuring that a project’s deliverables conform to the owner’s expectations reflected in the architect’s specifications. The submittal process affects cost, quality, schedule and ultimately project outcome. Large projects can involve thousands of submittals, including shop drawings, samples and material or product data, and management of the process can be a cumbersome and time-consuming effort.
The Kahua Submittals application provides a powerful, efficient way to track the entire submittals process from vendors to the Architect of Record, including any project participants. Collaboration and workflow enable you to leverage the knowledge of the entire project team to minimize project delays and defects.
Keeping track of daily project activity is important to effective schedule management, and critical in protecting the legal interests of all project participants.
The Kahua Daily Reports application provides a powerful, collaborative way to efficiently log daily information on labor, equipment, materials, weather and more. With Kahua, you’ll never be left wondering exactly what happened, and when.
The goal of the RFI process is to resolve any gaps, ambiguities or inconsistencies associated with your construction documents. Resolution in the bidding process or early in construction can reduce the cost of corrections, and increased efficiency in the process can avoid costly delays.
The Kahua RFI application provides a comprehensive RFI solution for contractors, architects, engineers and owners to accelerate the submission and resolution of any questions relating to the construction of your project.
Information recorded from the field is critical to ensuring that work is being completed in accordance with contract documents. Field observations help contractors continuously keep the owner up to date on the progress and quality of work, and create a record of on-site safety, quality and design observations.
The Kahua Field Observations application is optimized for mobile data capture to allow you to capture observations directly in the field, without having to go back to the office or construction trailer. Capture, manage and archive all field observations to minimize project risk.
You often are what you are perceived to be. Even when you are doing a great job, you need to make sure your project communications are of the highest quality.
The Kahua Communications application simplifies the management of inbound and outbound project communication and makes it easy for you to drive consistency and accuracy in the format of your company and project communications.
Effective cost management requires real-time visibility into the complete financial status of your projects. Early insight into how project activities impact financials can be the difference between profit and loss.
Kahua’s Work Breakdown is the heart of the Cost Management suite. It provides the ability to easily define the exact level of detail and structure at which you will manage cost, along with the ability to precisely define how project activities are mapped to your financial ledger. This provides a live snapshot of your project’s financial health, allowing you to always know “Am I making money or not?”
Effective budgeting can make or break a project. Traditional financial accounting is historical, focusing on what has happened in the past. Cost management in construction requires the ability to accurately forecast future costs.
Kahua provides a 360-degree view of cost – past, real time, and future. Budgets are automatically synched with updates to contracts and change orders to make sure you are always up to date with budget status and projections.
The only thing certain about large construction projects is change. Your ability to effectively prepare and document change requests can impact your legal exposure, reputation and profitability.
Kahua’s Change Requests app lets you efficiently and effectively manage all change order requests from a single location, leveraging one collaborative log for tracking and approving all change requests.
