GeoSLAM launches new solution to optimise construction progress tracking

By Eric Van Rees - 7th July 2021 - 05:09

A solution to quickly and easily measure the progress of a construction project has been launched by SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping) technology company, GeoSLAM.

After working closely with the construction industry for almost a decade, and running an extensive pilot with UK construction and property service company, Willmott Dixon, GeoSLAM has launched Construction Progress to streamline the monitoring of projects through generated point cloud data.

The solution will help construction companies understand their progress by speeding up an inherently manual process. Utilising an easy-to-use handheld scanner, information collection and progress results (expressed as a percentage complete, with coloured digital images showing the latest project updates) are available both on-site and at head office within minutes.

The data collected is automatically processed, generating a point cloud that is compared to a CAD model displaying easy-to-understand changes on site by date and time.

Being able to see the progress of a project gives site teams and head office clear and objective visibility of progress, helping to avoid missed milestones in the build or costly delays.
