Congrid helps the construction industry in improving quality and safety, by eliminating errors with transparency and creating a stronger collaboration on the construction site. Founded in Helsinki, Finland, in 2013 by a group of construction site managers, Congrid encourages everyone to take personal responsibility for delivering work, not only on time, but also to the highest quality and safety standards possible. From early on, the Finnish company has been developing its platform together with its customers. This has allowed solutions to be scaled to the changing needs of its customers, moreover it supports transparency and collaboration throughout the project phases.
Congrid’s primary goal throughout the website redesign process was to create value for its’ customers and partners with an easy way to learn about Congrid; its approach, products, culture and the people behind the brand. Congrid’s in-house marketing has built and redesigned the new website with the following characteristics in mind: structure, user-friendliness and easy navigation.

Whether it’s product announcements, customer success stories or future developments, all essential information about Congrid can be found in one place.
With its updated platform, Congrid introduces new levels of transparency and communication in the digital age of construction. The company provides a single platform to handle all quality and safety management in any construction project, including tools for the entire construction lifecycle: from planning, construction to the maintenance phase. Its offering focuses on the impact of seamless collaboration, communication and overall understanding of what has been built and how it has been built – both on-site and at the office. The product portfolio consists of easy-to-use products, which manage everyday routines, reports and priorities relating to quality and safety management.

At the heart of the new website is the importance of reducing paperwork at worksites and changing the culture of the construction industry overall.
