Smart Integrated Construction System
Approximately 80 % of Singapore’s population lives in homes built by the Singapore Housing & Development Board (HDB), the government organisation responsible for the development of all social housing in the South-East Asian nation. HDB has commissioned Witteveen+Bos and Nanyang Technological University to develop a Smart Integrated Construction System that makes use of digitalisation and automation to increase productivity in construction projects.
We are responsible for the development of an integrated centralised system for intelligently and efficiently collecting, structuring and sharing all information relating to a construction project. This includes, for instance, three-dimensional Building Information Models, documentation, information for contract management, and updates on progress. It is important to make the information available in such a way that tower cranes can operate autonomously on building sites.
