UK proptech start-up Coadjute is partnering with a number of housing associations to develop a blockchain platform that will increase safety, efficiency and accountability in housing construction. Quality Chain is a workflow application that unifies all stakeholders, including  architects, developers, clients and subcontractors, on a single project track to ensure no decisions or details go amiss.
