Neilsoft launches a SaaS solution for construction quality and progress


Neilsoft introduces ConstructMonitor, a SaaS solution for managing construction quality and progress, utilizing cloud-based data and specialized algorithms to identify deviations.

Neilsoft, a focused Engineering Services & Software Solutions (ER&D) supplier serving global customers in the AEC/Construction, Manufacturing, and Industrial Plants areas, unveiled the launch of ConstructMonitor, a SaaS solution for managing construction quality and progress. Neilsoft and Tokyo-based Fujita Corporation collaborated to develop the solution, which is intended to address construction project quality issues in larger projects such as commercial offices, high-rise buildings, data centres, hospitals, industrial plants, factories, malls, IT parks, and other infrastructure projects.

Several large and complex construction projects globally adopt BIM (Building Information Modelling) methodology, integrating various stakeholders (owners, architects, engineers, and contractors) with a single source of truth across the entire project lifecycle through a Common Data Environment (CDE). While BIM has found significantly higher adoption at the design phase of projects, construction quality and variation from as-designed BIM models during the construction phase remain challenges. ConstructMonitor has been developed to ensure better quality and progress monitoring and identify variations from the as-designed BIM model.

Quality defects at the construction site, such as design deviations, incorrect element sizes, and missing structural elements, have cascading repercussions on the construction sequence. These also lead to the need for rework, as well as safety hazards, material waste, cost overruns, and delays. ConstructMonitor enables general contractors, EPC firms, architects, project and construction management firms, and owners to remotely monitor design deviations at construction sites (vis-à-vis design BIM models) with LiDAR-enabled iPhones (on a daily or weekly basis) and/or terrestrial 3D laser scanners (once a month). Construction-site reality captured using point cloud data is relayed via our cloud platform to a processing server, where specialised algorithms make object-level comparisons with the BIM design data and identify deviations.

Raghuram NM, President of Neilsoft India Solutions Business, said, Neilsoft’s BIM journey started around 2007 and we have been fortunate to get to support leading Architects / Engineering firms / Contractors globally on several BIM projects. BIM as a methodology has seen increasing acceptance over the last 15+ years and the Construction industry today is very actively embracing technology to improve efficiencies across the project life-cycle. At Neilsoft, we are constantly investing in developing multi-disciplinary engineering & technology capabilities to add higher value to our customers in their Digital Transformation initiatives. We are developing our own IP-led Solutions to address real-world customer challenges across the Design-Construct-Operate phases and ConstructMonitor is our first IP-led solution for addressing Quality issues during the Construction phase.”

ConstructMonitor is offered as a SaaS solution for each client or project and is deployable either on a public or private cloud. The solution offers customisable visualisation capabilities and intuitive dashboards, providing a comprehensive view of the construction project and empowering remote users to determine the ‘as-built’ accuracy of the under-construction building. This early identification of costly variations and errors in the construction project lifecycle helps control construction quality, keeps projects on schedule, and enables timely remote monitoring of quality and progress without frequent site visits.
