Enhanced Knowledge Management and Collaboration

Flo10, a Milient solution, has been introduced across Michael Laird Architects to further strengthen communications and project compliance.

The Need for Improved Knowledge Management

Michael Laird Architects use Flo10, which is now part of Milient's brand.

Faster access to best practice information and establishing easy-to-follow workflows has become increasingly important to MLA. Flo10 has been introduced across the practice to further strengthen practice communications and project compliance.

Garth Fitzsimons, Director at MLA, explains: “Over the past few years we have improved our structure and processes including operations, support, and management. We needed a solution to help manage the vast amount of information required across construction projects and we want to learn from our experiences”

Strategic Implementation of Flo10

With a clear strategy and value proposition at MLA which puts their clients’ needs at the centre, Nick Gunn, IT Director, adds:

“We need our team to be efficient and respond successfully to challenges. No other system ticks the boxes that Flo10 does in terms of Knowledge Management
- Nick Gunn, IT Director

Culture and Support

Dedicated to making MLA a great place to work, Flo10 further supports a positive practice culture with a platform that everyone across the practice can contribute to.

Nick confirms Flo10 have been an excellent partner to work with too. “The service has been excellent. The Flo10 teams are always available and responsive” - Nick Gunn, IT Director

Future Development and Expansion

In terms of next steps, Flo10 has had a universally positive reaction and the capabilities will be extended to further empower the MLA team.

“We are now building on staff responses to create more content in select areas of the practice. It’s also going to be extremely useful to introduce the exemplary gallery of 'feature' projects to give an easy way for everyone to find examples, key documents and images, and lessons learned”
- Nick Gunn, IT Director


We want to celebrate our successes and foster a culture of collaboration. Flo10 brings everything together in a more effective way.
