Edmonton, AB (July 16, 2018) – PCL
Construction’s ongoing partnership with Microsoft, and it’s Azure platform
teams, was showcased today in the ‘Transforming your Business with Microsoft
IoT’ keynote at the Microsoft Inspire Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Having Mr. George reference the great work PCL has been
doing with Microsoft, and our Job Site Insights platform, is inspiring to our
team as we work towards better building in the future, for both the industry,
and most importantly our clients.” said Mark Bryant, PCL Construction’s Chief
Job Site Insights (JSI) is PCL’s Smart Construction platform of
the future. Construction sites are instrumented with various IoT sensors
throughout the life span of the project and the data collected is continuously
streamed into the JSI cloud platform built on Microsoft Azure using the
features and capabilities of Azure Maps and Azure IoT Spatial Intelligence. JSI
visualizes the construction site, mapping the devices to spaces, equipment,
assets and people, giving project staff a single pane of glass view of the
digital job site. Through the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine
Learning technologies JSI analyzes the data and provides real-time actionable
insights to the construction site staff, partners, and owners. Job Site
Insights is making construction smarter by enabling lean construction, reducing
costly rework and warranty claims, improving build quality, conserving energy,
increasing productivity & safety, and reducing PCL’s carbon footprint.
