Turner Construction Company is Leveraging Innovative Technology to Optimize Jobsite Productivity
Versatile’s CraneView™ solution transforms cranes into smart devices
Turner Construction Company leverages Versatile’s CraneView technology to further optimize efficiency and productivity on jobsites. California-based Versatile is engaged in a “lighthouse agreement” with Turner, a leading construction management organisation with more than $13 billion in annual revenue.
Versatile’s CraneView technology captures and analyses thousands of data points collected throughout the workday via a proprietary crane hook mounted sensor array and provides Turner with actionable insights on jobsite performance through their online and mobile dashboard. These insights support Turner in the planning and sequencing of construction activities, and positively impact scheduling and safety.
Piloted on a 378,000 sq. ft. headquarters project in San Diego, California, CraneView insights led the Turner team to enact continuous improvement measures that shaved 17 days off of exterior skin installation.
“Once the system began compiling and analysing real data, the value became exceedingly clear,” said Steve Elliot, Senior Project Superintendent for Turner.
“The insights we received led us to make data-driven decisions that positively impacted our productivity.”
The Turner team also noted that CraneView was simple to set up and connected seamlessly to existing workflows without requiring additional work to manage. And, the technology enables them to manage their jobsites effectively, even when working remotely.
Meirav Oren, CEO and co-founder of Versatile, observed that “Partnering with a world- class organisation like Turner is an ideal opportunity to demonstrate the value that CraneView delivers. Turner employs some of the best and brightest professionals in the industry, and we love having the opportunity to help them elevate their instincts even further to increase jobsite productivity, efficiency, and safety.”
For Turner, the data CraneView collects and delivers value far beyond a single project. Future projects can leverage insights into production rates for more precise budgeting, scheduling, and resource allocation.
