Adroit and Timescapes Partnership Delivers the Ultimate Construction Monitoring Solution
Two leading construction technology specialists, Adroit and Timescapes have integrated their platforms to create the ultimate solution for worksite project visibility and environmental monitoring.
The partnership sees Adroit’s extensive range of industry-leading environmental sensors integrating with Timescapes’ timelapse and job site analytics technology platform. The result allows customers to automatically see essential environmental data on factors such as noise, vibration, dust and weather in the Timescapes platform and compare that data with high-resolution timelapse images.
Adroit CEO Blair Stewart says the partnership with Timescapes is exciting and provides significant additional client value to the Adroit product offering.
“Adroit has spent the past four years building capability in worksite and construction monitoring technology and providing important data to stakeholders through the Cloud.
“But while our data visualisations have been able to clearly report the date and time of a spike in noise levels for example, the actual source of the noise couldn’t always be identified. Now with Timescapes, seeing is believing, with photos showing exactly what was happening on the worksite at any given time,” he said.
The problem we’re solving is how to make data useful. The first part is capturing it, but how do you actually present it back to stakeholders, so it is both usable and valuable? We both provide different parts of that solution, so this is a great partnership
In many cases, Timescapes has been running on the same worksites as Adroit, which prompted the collaboration.
“We’ve always had Timescapes on all our projects, and more recently have engaged with Adroit, subsequently suggesting a marriage of the two systems given the value we experience with them,” says Flinn Clark, Wellington Area Manager at CMP Construction.
“It helps that we can jump on and quickly flick through all the projects we’re working on and have a good understanding as to what’s occurring at any given time.”
“It keeps you involved and in control of that process – whether it’s in support of the foreman or the subcontractors or whether it’s for our own peace of mind to make sure that we’re comfortable with what’s happening. Building projects is the core of what we do, so we embrace the technology to support us in doing so.”
“And for our record keeping, the data is all logged with a full history of what’s happened on a site. It gives us the ability to look back and check and correct processes for the future, or use the data to celebrate the achievements,” he says.
“When it comes to compliance with the resource consent, what the Council requires is factual evidence. We can give them that at a click of a button. It’s not guesswork, it’s actually based on real evidence from a properly calibrated tool, not just an app on your iPhone or whatever it may be,” Clark says.
Blair Stewart says that the combined platform will be transformational for the Construction Sector.
“What we’re all wanting is safer, quieter, efficient and compliant worksites. We’re confident that Adroit and Timescapes can help make this a reality,” he said.
