Constructive Solutions, one of the leading commercial general contractors in San Francisco’s bay area of San Mateo has decided to tackle construction projects with a more technologized approach. The general contractor, which has handled many construction projects in the region, decided to include some of the latest construction practices chipping in through technology to construct buildings that are not only durable and attractive but also cost effective with more conducive working environment.
The general contractor San Francisco firm which has a wide range of specialties, including commercial interiors, retail, corporate facilities, building renovations, decided to incorporate more tech related improvements on its provision to make their structures more applicable and suitable to users’ needs. The firm which has worked on hundreds of successful projects in the region says that with their new approach, many commercial building owners will have even more reason to continue entrusting their projects to Constructive Solutions.
Beating the critics
In recent years, there had been a consensus that commercial general contractor San Francisco firms were playing catch-up as far as embracing the technological advancements and innovations in construction industry is concerned.
According to various critics, industrial general contractors were criticized as one that prioritizes avoiding cost of embracing technology due to the potential benefits that are accrued from the old deprecated construction methods. Years have passed, and with the recent upsurge in technology in construction industry, most industrial general contractors have no choice but to change their strategies.
However, Constructive Solutions started way back earlier even before most of the general contractors in the region were conscious about technological changes in the industry. The firm heavily invested in a lot of more technologized methods of construction, with construction using pre-fabricated steel being the earliest to be incorporated in its practices.
As other general contractor Oakland, San Mateo and San Francisco firms struggle to attain the levels of what Constructive Solutions has attained today, the latter continues to forge ahead, always staying a step ahead of those trying to catch up with it.
Going further technology-wise
Most are familiar with the use of the unmanned aerial vehicles, popularly known as drones in commercial sector. For instance, Amazon is in the final stages of implementing the process of delivering packages to buyers’ homes located within 30 minutes. On the other hand, Facebook has a 10 year plan which includes the use of solar powered drones to provide internet access to the world’s remote places. And in the construction sector, industrial construction companies have implemented the use of these drones to carry out site surveys during construction project’s initial stages. The drones are also being used to carry out monitoring throughout the entire construction phase.
Constructive Solutions already has these drones incorporated in its efforts to stay up to date with recent technological advancements in construction industry. These drones are already a very common sight at most construction sights and the firm has chosen not to be left behind in this development.
This commercial general contractor is however considering taking it to a higher level with the more advanced drones using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). These drones with RFID are capable of accurately tracking location of plates, pipes among other metallic objects at a construction site. The company says that it is dedicated in making the work of its employees on site much easier so as to improve their efficiency and time needed to complete projects within the budget.
With these advanced drones, the firm says that it will be easier for workers to track materials and reduce use of checklists and clipboards. The firm intends to burry such methods of material identification and instead stay put as technology unravels.
Expanding flexibility as need arises
In this generation, buildings are increasingly becoming even taller to compensate for the width which cannot be achieved on ground due to congestion. As such, construction companies must be able to come up with designs that can be implemented according to the building owners’ demands. As complexities of projects grow, so does the risks of injuries.
In the construction industry, drones are utilized in the reading of measurements and carrying out surveys for such tall buildings. This comes with the advantage that potential accidents are eliminated and a lot of time saved. Constructive Solutions is aware of these advancements in the technological sector and has utilized them to not only save time but also cater for its workers’ safety.
In other parts of the world’ such as Japan, the world’s largest construction company, Komatsu has taken the use of drones even a step higher by integrating them with autonomous machines. Komatsu, in partnership with Skycatch, an American firm have come up with “Smart Construction” which is a service for earthmoving and excavation operations. The service employs use of robotics and drones in mapping sites in 3D. It is estimated that drone use can eliminate up to 30 percent margin errors normally associated with surveys conducted by humans.
This is a great technological advancement in the industrial construction industry which has greatly improved the quality of works done by contractors.
An insight into the future
As technology continues to grow, so does the many ways to simplify work for humans. So many advancements are already being implemented by construction firms such as using tracking gadgets to track employees at site to improve efficiency.
Constructive Solutions is working closely with the latest technologies in construction to ensure that it provides quick, durable and attractive commercial construction structures meeting client expectations. The firm is looking into the future where by much of the construction work will be performed through technology. It is prospecting into future where it will be able to meet every client’s construction needs in the least effort possible.
The firm strongly urges those who haven’t embraced the possibilities that come with technology to rethink their positions because it won’t be long before some of the stubborn competing construction companies drag behind.
The company intends to have an even wider coverage in the San Francisco Bay Area, so as to develop commercial buildings that adhere to the latest standards. The firm’s move to incorporate use of technology is considered a ground breaking move and soon many other firms will follow suit to raise the standards of commercial general contractors in San Francisco.
