The DCW Integrations Platform is a connected data warehouse, with the purpose to enable secure, robust, and scalable integrations of multiple product sets and digital services as fit-for-purpose workflow-based processes found on a digital construction project. Its ability to enable in-depth reporting, data validation, integration, and digital twin representation of the job site is necessary for digital transformation. It empowers the digital twin and DCW analytics, which improves overall project awareness, management, and reporting. DCW Insights is powered by the DCW Integrations Platform and provides secure project performance dashboards and uses advanced analytics to monitor construction activity, helping to mitigate cost and time overruns while keeping safety at the forefront. Advanced analytics enables data-driven decisions and optimizes best practices.

DCW 4D Temporary Works visualizes temporary works for design and construction. Continuous surveying analyzes the current site status semi-automatically, along with parametric design rules, to calculate the minimum amount of temporary equipment needed. It also accelerates the construction feedback loop with real-world conditions to reduce construction costs and improve job site safety. DCW 4D Construction Progress Monitoring is a critical path of the construction verification process for transportation, building, and site and uses fast and continuous reality versus design comparisons improving project status reporting and removes the potential backlog of as-builts often required for the next phase of construction. It avoids wasted time on rework, schedule delays, and downstream clashes.

Ted Lamboo, CEO of DCW, said: “The construction industry sees that digitizing their workflows will increase efficiency and avoid risk and overruns. For example, DCW performed a project for a leading North America EPC on a major construction project in Texas. The DCW team was asked to step in and ramp up the project quickly so the customer could meet critical project goals. Through the use of DCW’s Construction Solution for AWP, using the programmatic implementation of the AWP best-practices and digital workflows for the path of construction, DCW was able to significantly decrease the amount of time it would have previously taken to accomplish the project. DCW formed a trusted partnership with the customer and has been invited to work on additional projects.”

“We believe that the integration of industry technologies is how true efficiency gains will be realized. DCW’s subject matter experts have both real-world construction experience and technology knowhow to deliver unique solutions for organizations looking to advance their digital capabilities. We initially engage with companies by performing a digital assessment that identifies necessary integrations and path of construction digital workflow improvements.” said Jason Hallett,” COO of DCW.
