Suffolk Construction faced a familiar reality capture problem. They were working on a $300 million hospital project consisting of 1,500 rooms and spaces. Using traditional methods—taking digital photographs and organizing them manually—wasn’t cutting it.
As Newmetrix founder and CEO Josh Kanner told me, his company builds a cloud software platform that enabled Suffolk to capture the data faster, and organize it much more easily. Using Newmetrix, Suffolk was able to send employees into the field with smartphones to take video of each room and use those videos to produce a smart, searchable database of their construction progress. (The employees could have used wearables or drones to capture the rooms, too.)
The result? Suffolk spent less than half the time on documentation.
