Case Study – Karbon Homes

Here at SR1 Development, we work to nurture and develop existing partnerships. We’ve had the pleasure of getting to work with Karbon Homes again, this time to migrate their existing EDMS management system from SharePoint 2019 to Sharepoint Online.


Karbon Homes covers the North East of England and Yorkshire, with around 32,000 homes across diverse communities, all facing different opportunities and challenges. 

They are focused on delivering three strategic aims – to provide as many good quality homes as they can, to deliver excellent service to customers, and to shape strong, sustainable places for their communities. 

The Approach 

Karbon homes had already implemented a robust internal EDMS system to integrate their Housing Management System with SharePoint on Premise.  

They approached SR1 Development to support with the rebuild and enhancement of this in Office 365 set up. 

The Result 

We implemented and launched several SharePoint Online sites, interconnected via a hub site, providing the information colleagues needed instant access to. Key elements included: 

  • Custom webpart to allow users to easily upload and tag documents. 
  • Azure integration to transform tagged documents to standard naming conventions. 
  • Automatic application of labels based on document properties to meet retention requirements. 
  • Central search for simple retrieval of documents. 
  • Integration with Housing Management system to upload and retrieve documents. 
  • Automatic creation of new document repositories. 


“We have a great relationship with SR1 from previous developments and we knew we could rely on them to deliver a quality and professional service to help us reach our desired outcome.  

Their expertise enabled us to reach our goal in migrating our existing housing EDMS management system to SharePoint Online, seamlessly. They were so accommodating throughout and very meticulous with our requirements. We look forward to working with SR1 again in the future”.
