To answer to the question “What is precision construction?” we must think about complete and integrated software solutions available today, that besides easing the work in the tough construction sector, also enhance the accuracy of the measurements and results.
Companies active in construction have to cope with different challenges including the particularities of their work and the conditions imposed by the beneficiaries. Typically, the activity of a construction company means 80% site work, with resource allocation: workers, equipment, machinery, deadlines for projects, downtime caused by unfavorable weather conditions, crowded periods alternating with inactive periods… Under these conditions, efficient resource management, execution of more projects with fewer resources, strict cost accounting, analyzing and reducing them are mandatory requirements for maximizing profitability and efficiency.
Surveillance and geo-location
Some of the major reasons for delaying construction projects and overcoming the budget are geological problems, especially when building lake homes for sale in Hot Springs AR and other popular areas, consisting in variations between the conditions of the land and estimates; they may involve costly changes in the design of a construction project. Fortunately, new techniques that integrate geographic information systems, HD photography and 3D scanning, allowed by recent technological progresses, can improve the precision of the information on which a construction project is based.
This next-generation technology is a complex representation of the characteristics of a construction project. It takes into account the cost and schedule of construction projects, as well as standard 3D spatial design parameters. It also includes details such as geometry, aesthetic, acoustic and thermal features. 5D Design Platforms allow building owners and entrepreneurs to identify the impact of changes on costs and schedules related to construction projects.
Digitization brings faster exchange of information between those who work on a construction project. Using paper makes it more difficult to capture and analyze data. Process digitization means forgetting about papers and welcoming online transmission of information in real time, to ensure transparency and enhanced collaboration, risk assessment, quality control and more reliable results.
New and improved construction materials
New construction materials (nano-materials, self-healing concrete etc.), as well as new building approaches (3D printing and pre-assembled modules), can speed up the construction time and reduce the costs, by improving the precision, quality and safety.
Other advantages of software that contribute to precision construction

- Cost control
Defining and tracking planned and committed costs, as well as real-time comparison with the actual costs of running the construction project.
- Equipment and machinery management
Planning and tracking the equipment and machinery used in construction projects
- Supplying on time
Controlling the quality and the stock levels and planning the purchases
- Financial-Accounting Management
Managing your financial and accounting activity from any location and consolidating communication.
- Integration with other project management software
You can integrate construction software and project management software to ensure complete efficiency.
- Analyzes and reports specific to construction
Tracking in real-time the profitability, consumption of materials, human resources, equipment and transport.
