Versatile’s CraneView 4.0 is in use on Gilbane’s Department of General Services, General Assembly Building project in Richmond, VA. This new 415,000 SF, 15-story legislative and administrative office tower is the central component of an extensive modernization program for Virginia’s historic capitol square.
Gilbane’s project team maximized the daily data reports to measure, analyze and improve performance on crane utilization, site logistics, operations and safety, yielding higher output and improved schedules, and a safer, more efficient subcontractor workflow.

Running multiple devices on multiple cranes, the project team has been able to identify and mitigate outliers, double handling and inefficiencies to maintain optimal performance. Motionless metrics provided by CraneView allowed for coordinating real-time deliveries as well as managing picks and efficient workflow. To date, the project team has seen up to 90% utilization rate on steel erection and 98% on the facade.

Our relationship with Versatile has allowed us to be on the front edge of new technology in the construction market. This technology enables us to analyze our performance on a daily basis, providing a truly unique vantage point to create better outcomes in real-time. We’re looking forward to seeing how this knowledge empowers us in the planning stage of our projects—I believe we’ve only just begun to see the potential.”
