The site uses a range of technologies to automate on-site processes, while also reducing construction time and identifying and preventing emergencies and accidents at an early stage.
Moscow’s authorities have announced the practical stage of an experiment that aims to create a ‘smart’ construction site as a component of a smart city is underway in the Metrogorodok district of the Russian capital.
The smart construction site involves the use of various modern information technologies to automate on-site processes, while also reducing construction time and identifying and preventing emergencies and accidents at an early stage.
According to Eduard Lysenko, minister of the Government of Moscow and head of the city’s Department of Information Technology, the introduction of smart solutions in the city’s building sites will take the construction industry to a fundamentally new level. Lysenko reports that employee supervision systems, digital passports for builders, video surveillance systems and unmanned aerial vehicles, digital control of the disposal of construction and demolition waste and many other things are integral parts of a smart building site.
Implementation of the technology is expected to boost labour productivity by monitoring the compliance of operations performed with current job tasks
New technology for digital duplication of the operational activities of employees is being tested at one of the construction sites in the Metrogorodok district. Implementation of the technology is expected to boost labour productivity by monitoring the compliance of operations performed with current job tasks.
In addition, builders’ ratio of active to idle time will be monitored and it will also seek to help prevent accidents at work and reduce potential safety and occupational health risks.
The pilot project will be completed in the second quarter of 2021. All of the data will be aggregated in the digital passport of the construction project.
The Department of Information Technologies of Moscow claims to have developed more than 1,000 systems and digitalised 166 state services with a target of launching 300 new projects annually.
The department identifies up to 30 ‘unique’ products and programmes, including medical and education systems informatisation, creation of crowdsourcing platforms, and development of various resources and portals for Moscow and its citizens.
