BlueDragon Use Cases
The construction sector encompasses infrastructure, commercial and residential building firms including owners, contractors, architects, engineers, tradespeople and vendors. With hazardous materials, heavy equipment, working from heights, in trenches, and other risks intrinsic to complex project environments, construction carries immense safety and quality challenges.
Typical issues faced include:
- Injuries, severe accidents and fatalities from falls, being struck-by objects, electrical shocks, confined spaces and other construction site hazards resulting in lost time, OSHA fines, and liability costs.
- Cost overruns and schedule delays eroding already thin profit margins and delaying revenue generation from project completion.
- Cyber incidents leading to theft of sensitive design files and proprietary project data.
- Stop work orders, lawsuits, consent decrees and damage to competitive status due to safety and environmental noncompliance.
- Quality escapes resulting in rework requiring tear out and replacement to pass inspections.
- Inconsistent safety culture and inadequate skills training allows for risk tolerance across projects and trades.
- Inferior quality materials and substituted products being installed without verification leading to failures, leaks and performance issues.
- Damaging storms, excessive rain and other extreme weather events disrupting project momentum.
- Skilled labor shortages coupled with an aging workforce and loss of trade expertise through retirement.
- Project delays from late material deliveries and supply chain disruptions.
- Security gaps allowing theft of building materials, tools and equipment.
- Diminished oversight over subcontractors leading to unauthorized shortcuts and off-the-books unsafe practices.
