Sablono secures multi-party deal with Clarion and Henry Boot

Sablono has secured a deal with Clarion Housing Group (Clarion) and their main contractor, Henry Boot.

Sablono has secured a deal with Clarion Housing Group (Clarion) - the UK’s largest housing association that currently provides housing for 350,000 residents, and their main contractor, Henry Boot – a British construction and property development business that has been successfully operating for 135 years. Clarion commissioned Sablono for the fit-out of 279 apartments in York, UK which is due to start in August 2022. It is estimated that Sablono could help to track up to 20,000 activities across the project supply chain.

“With a huge pipeline of exciting and new developments within the Clarion portfolio, we have quickly recognised the need for managing our preferred delivery partners in a way that will benefit both the main contractor and the client.  

The Sablono system will help Clarion as a client collect valuable data on build quality, programme certainty and the commercial expenditure on all elements of the build we need to record and track during the delivery process.  We are looking forward to our first collaborative approach using Sablono with one of our preferred main contracting partners, Henry Boot Construction on our exciting Cocoa Works project.” - John Mudge, Regional Delivery Director, North Latimer by Clarion Housing Group

“This deal is particularly special for us because Sablono will be used by multiple different types of stakeholders. Henry Boot as the main contractor will use the system across their supply chain, while Clarion will use Sablono for quality assurance,” commented Lukas Olbrich, Co-Founder and CEO of Sablono.

“Because Sablono does everything in real-time, it prevents the need to rely on manual methods such as spreadsheets, which has the potential to save hours of time on this project. From Sablono’s point of view, it's really exciting to be working with big names such as Clarion and Henry Boot, and hopefully, we'll see more partnerships like this moving forward,” said Andrew Cowan, Senior Account Executive at Sablono.
