TWINS
Digital twins are virtual models (or twins) of physical items such as buildings, that are used to understand, predict, and optimize performance to achieve improved business results. Using sensors and historical data, Job Site Insights ™ integrates intelligence into both smart construction and smart buildings that allow you to make informed data driven decisions.
IOT SENSORS

Job Site Insights ™ supports virtally any IoT hardware. PCL is working closely with partners who provide reliable, cost-effective, sensors that are suitable for the job site or structure, and offer comprehensive security.

MICROSOFT DIGITAL TWINS

Using Microsoft Azure and Azure IoT technologies, PCL's industry leading IoT solution is built on Azure Digital Twins. This platform is providing us with the foundation to build repeatable, scalable experiences that correlate data from digital spaces and the physical world.

ANALYTICS AND REPORTING

Job Site Insights ™ is a powerful platform that enables us to use predictive analytics to compare sensor data with decades of historical project data to provide insights and predictions. This makes us smarter builders and results in increased worker safety, quality, and productivity. This can also be used to understand how an existing building is performing and predicts how it will perform in the future.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
The construction industry has a reputation of being a laggard when it comes to technology but not PCL. We're taking a modern approach to the role that technology plays to help manage our construction job sites and run the business. Five years ago we embarked on a technology initiative based on four pillars: cloud, mobility, analytics, and integration. The results of this technology strategy has enabled PCL to focus on the future of construction using IOT, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence. This will transform the face of construction through the enablement of robust and timely data driven decisions at the workface.
