In the fast-paced world of construction, embracing cutting-edge technology has become paramount to meet the ever-increasing demands for efficiency and productivity. Chang Hua Construction, a prominent player in the industry, has recognized the importance of adopting innovative solutions to tackle their challenges head-on.

We were pleased to speak with Eyin Tan, QA/QC Manager at Chang Hua Construction, to delve into how the company has remarkably improved transparency, communication, and efficiency with the implementation of OpenSpace, a state-of-the-art 360° reality capture platform. In the following video, Ms. Tan elaborates on ways that OpenSpace has added value.

Challenges in the construction industry

The construction industry has faced persistent challenges, including the need to accelerate technology adoption and upskill the workforce. Chang Hua Construction acknowledged that greater efficiency and productivity were essential to remain competitive.

Additionally, attracting talent to the industry was a struggle due to the perception of harsh working conditions. A potential loss of knowledge and experience loomed if a pipeline of skilled talents was not established. These issues demanded innovative solutions that would revolutionize the company’s construction processes.

Empowering construction with OpenSpace

Chang Hua Construction’s proactive approach led the company to embrace OpenSpace reality capture. By documenting an entire jobsite, down to the smallest detail, OpenSpace empowered the construction team to gain a comprehensive understanding of the project.

In particular, OpenSpace’s BIM Compare feature proved to be a game-changer by ensuring constructed elements aligned correctly with the model, which resulted in improved construction accuracy.

With real-time progress tracking and scheduling, the company experienced enhanced efficiency and accountability. The 360-degree visual documentation eliminated finger-pointing, as all stakeholders had access to an objective and accurate record of the jobsite. This level of transparency streamlined communication, enabling teams to collaborate effectively and make informed decisions.
