Connected Construction

Our Vault 3D Spatial Intelligence platform harnesses IoT connectivity to create a digital twin of a construction site (a spatial model).

VAULT:

  • Provides live insights - onsite
  • Connects the whole supply chain
  • Digitises manual processes
  • Provides more efficient tracking of human and equipment resources, project status, and employee safety
  • Digitises and captures site records with total spatial accuracy.

Problem

NZ Strong needed a way to manage council noise compliance on their construction site and gain greater efficiencies in construction management.

Solution

A ‘smart’ construction site with IoT for live insights on:

  • People
  • Plant
  • Environment

 

Outcomes

  • Halved client time spent on reporting and managing regulatory requirements
  • Safer construction
  • Reduced costs
  • Real-time decision making
  • Better communication and connection of all stakeholders to ONE digital hub

Why

Due to a poor level of digitisation (second only to agriculture according to statistics) and an industry that is used to working in silos, the New Zealand construction industry has long been plagued by; inefficiences, poor safety and poor communication.

To help, asBuilt has strategically developed unique workflows and customised software that enables stakeholders to align and collaborate in a single structured data environment - a digital twin.

 

What


CONNECTED CONSTRUCTION = 3D SPATIAL INTELLIGENCE + LIVE INSIGHTS WITH IOT, ML AND AI


Wynyard 100 combines intelligent Internet of Things (IoT) devices; Microsoft Azure cloud and Power BI technology; drone and 3D camera imaging; and geolocation.

A ‘digital twin’ of the building is hosted in asBuilt’s Vault platform and is accessible to the Wynyard 100 team to monitor people, plant and environment.

Machine learning is used to count people, measure environmental parameters (light, sound, CO2, temperature, particles), read license plates, identify whether personnel are wearing safety equipment or entering exclusion zones.

External equipment-tracking plugins from contractors such as crane providers are integrated via the Azure cloud and external data streams from ERP systems and telematics providers.

A Smarter Future – today

The construction industry remains one of the least digitised industries, with poor productivity, a heavy environmental footprint and a poor safety record. A lot of time onsite is wasted waiting for equipment to arrive, working out exactly where something should be installed, interpreting printed plans and documents and fixing miscommunications. Time is money. Vault provides the foundation for a future in which:

  • The entire supply chain can shift from ‘silo’ to ‘flow’ as they connect to ONE aligned platform
  • Manual processes are digitised and optimised in the digital realm
  • Carbon outputs are monitored and site waste is tracked
  • Environmental sensors provide data on temperature, noise, wind speed and more
  • Workers are safer and pre-alerted as to hazardous zones and potential onsite dangers
  • Team members can order plant equipment digitally – saving paperwork and downtime
  • Permit management is streamlined and stakeholders informed of permit status
  • Employees are digitally inducted on to the site for optimal Health and Safety compliance.
