Tech-enabled project management in PH construction

Keeping up with the pressing need to adapt to hybrid work, engineering firms, contractors, and participants across the value chain realize the benefits of, and increasingly deploy, connected construction technologies. These technologies can help bring assets, people, processes, and job sites onto one platform making everyone and everything work smarter, reduce downtime, optimize asset utilization and efficiency, and gain greater visibility into operations.

Tech-enabled Project Management For Connected Construction

In any industry, efficiency is currency. A trend predicted to take over in line with hybrid work, connected construction will likely be a catch-all for major digital investments– this will enable stakeholders to connect, integrate, and automate operations and bring the entire value chain onto a secure, intelligent infrastructure. 

Efficiency is achieved when there is seamless integration across the board, and tech-enabled project management companies like JCV & Associates can help make it happen. While it is uncommon for clients to directly engage with suppliers and partners to help cut costs, such ways of working are prone to the pitfalls of information gap. 

Recognizing the pain points of construction project management in relation to streamlined work processes JCV & Associates aims to deliver innovative and tech-driven solutions to address the unique construction industry demands and challenges. Backed by 120 years of combined experience from its leadership and project teams, JCV & Associates offers bespoke and holistic project management solutions catered to diverse client portfolios from project planning and development, cost consultancy, to WELL, LEED and BERDE certification. 

Aside from JCV & Associates’ forward-looking technologies that provide on-the-go and real-time information to clients and project managers such as Agile, a proprietary program that serves as a dashboard for all project updates and reports, and Vault, a Project Management Information System (PIMS) and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) facility that functions as a secure online drive for all project-related documents, JCV & Associates has recently partnered with leading 3D visualization provider Digiscript Philippines Inc. to introduce yet another advanced construction management solution - OpenSpace.

Reality Capture by OpenSpace

Attention to detail is key to any successful endeavor, and even truer in the construction industry where a missed detail can cause fatal consequences. While blueprints have long been the visual guide of professionals in the field, innovation has given us far more advanced means to capture both the vision and reality in real-time. One of the most advanced technologies for reality capture is OpenSpace, a platform that offers complete job site documentation to remotely manage and track construction progress — with automated, passive capture and mapping. 

Brought by DigiScript, a reality capture solutions company, to the Philippines, OpenSpace is the leading product in the market that eliminates the time-consuming, manual task of uploading, naming and mapping each photo onto project plans, empowering engineers, project managers, and developers in driving their projects to complete success.

Through OpenSpace, users are able to see total site transparency and monitor real-time progress, manage risks, conduct remote site visits, do seamless integrations with various stakeholders and tasks, and team synchronization.

Not meant to replace human skills but rather augment them, innovation in the construction industry such as OpenSpace, driven by companies like JCV & Associates as the first project management company to offer OpenSpace in the country, and DigiScript as the official channel partner of OpenSpace in the Philippines, opens limitless possibilities to the future of synchronized and precise work and creates better-designed and executed, sustainable and optimized infrastructures.
