NOTTINGHAM, England – (BUSINESS WIRE) – A solution to quickly and easily measure the progress of a construction project was launched by leading Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) technology company GeoSLAM.

After nearly a decade of working closely with the construction industry, GeoSLAM Construction launched Progress to streamline the monitoring of projects through generated point cloud data.

The solution will help construction companies understand their progress by speeding up an inherently manual process. With the help of an easy-to-use handheld scanner, the information collection and progress results (expressed as a percentage of completion, with full color digital images showing the latest project updates) are available on site and at headquarters in minutes.

The data collected is processed automatically, generating a point cloud that is compared to a CAD model that shows easy-to-understand changes on site by date and time.

The ability to see the progress of a project gives site teams and headquarters a clear and objective view of progress and helps avoid missed construction milestones or costly delays.

On introducing the software, Graham Hunter, CEO of GeoSLAM said:

“We have always advocated the importance of technology to any business, but today automated tools like Construction Progress are especially critical to the longevity of construction companies. This is something completely new for the industry.

“The outlook for the industry looks promising, but it requires the right tools to face it directly. I am confident that Construction Progress will help alleviate the pressures construction companies may face in the coming months. ”

With the world population expected to reach 9 billion by 2050, the demand for faster construction and sustainable building methods has never been so great.

GeoSLAM recently launched its own payment plan to reduce upfront costs by allowing customers to spread the cost of a device over 24 months with Connect and Construction Progress.
