How does Hypervine ’ s technology help augment the construction process and improve operations ?
Hypervine . io technology helps augment the construction process and improve operations through the automation of manual processes made possible by passively capturing data on-site . We then use AI to generate insights from the vast amount of data that is coming in and identify problem areas that can help companies large or small to reduce costs in tools and materials , reduce carbon emissions and calculate their carbon offsets . This is achieved almost instantly through the Hypervine dashboard .
Can you tell us more about the partnership between Hypervine , Morrison Construction and Scottish Water ?
Morrison Construction was our first customer , they were impressed with our early product development and they wanted to continue using Hypervine as time went on . The leadership there went on to ask if we would like to help support a bid to Scottish Water called DV2 , of course , we jumped at the opportunity . We worked with Morrison Construction on the pitch , explained our capabilities and helped them with the due diligence work for the Scottish Water bid DV2 , Morrison Construction ended up winning the bid – which was very exciting news – something which we take great pride in having been a part of at Hypervine .
How has your AI and Blockchain technology help Morrison Construction and Scottish Water reduce their carbon emissions ?
Using AI and Blockchain has helped Morrison Construction identify the source of emissions allowing them to take active steps to reduce the emissions on the high emitters – this is something that wasn ' t visible before .
As you start reducing emissions on sites you also start reducing the assets or frameworks ’ overall emissions which helps Scottish Water to reduce emissions on its capital improvements .
How has the implementation of your technology allowed organisations – and Hypervine – to scale and manage their data ?
Yes , with the automation of data capture and using Blockchain technology to ensure the integrity of data being stored it means vast amounts of data is being captured , stored and organised that is easily accessible from a single point . This massively improved coordination of site data and operations within construction firms .
What does the digital future for construction look like ?
The digital future for construction looks very promising . Construction companies are increasingly open to using new technology and understand the need to digitise to improve operations , lower their emissions and improve profit margins – it ’ s a win-win for construction .
Technology helps construction reduce laborious operations and understand their organisations better , which is leading to better quality outputs of projects and higher customer satisfaction .
Construction is at a wonderful crossroads , the companies that adopt digital technologies will win more bids as they will be able to measure their carbon emissions and they will be able to improve their profits as automation of digital technologies reduces their operational costs , including mistakes . Digitising construction is certainly at an early stage of a very exciting period of growth and development . �
