For Industries

Doxel tracks progress on complex construction across industries like Data Centers, Manufacturing, Healthcare, and more.

Prevent Rework the Easy Way

Identifying what’s still pending can feel like finding a needle in a haystack, especially when less than 10% of a particular trade’s work remains. Doxel has updated the Work In Place visualization to make it easier to find remaining work. 

The Challenge of Tracking Unfinished Work

Managing a large construction project involves ensuring that millions of components are installed correctly, in the correct sequence, across many trade partners. Put simply, it’s easy to see what is there, it’s hard to find something missing. As more trades begin their installations, the not installed scope gets occluded, making it hard to visually see what’s left. This leads to a common problem in construction: unfinished in-wall MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) being covered up by drywall teams, leading to costly and demoralizing rework.

The Easy Way to Find Remaining Work and Prevent Rework

Choosing “Not Complete” in Doxel’s Work in Place visualization is a straightforward approach to solving the challenge of finding remaining work. By isolating the components that are yet to be completed, Doxel enables teams to have focused conversations with trade partners and other responsible parties. This feature empowers site teams to:

  • Clearly distinguish between installed and not installed components within each trade and stage.
  • Identify any missing elements that still need to be installed.
  • Enhance collaboration by providing all stakeholders with a complete picture of the project’s status.
  • Prevent rework 

How It Works

The Work In Place visualization helps site teams easily manage and track work installed by providing an automated, color coded 3D model of the structure, broken down by trade, zones, and stages of construction. Now you can select a trade, sort by “Not Complete” and see what is yet to be installed for that trade. This powerful tool answers the critical questions: “What is installed?’, “What is pending?” and “What is not done?” so that construction teams can appropriately manage labor, sequence trades, and hit project milestones.

How to find work not yet complete:

  1. Open the 3D Work-in-Progress View: Navigate to the area of interest 
  2. Select the Trade(s): Use the dropdown menu to select the trade or trades you want to examine.
  3. “Not Complete”: The view will show pending work in gray, making it easy to see what is still left to be done. 

Prevent inspection and commissioning delays

Traditional construction progress tracking methods rely heavily on manual inspections and subjective reporting, often leading to errors and oversights. With the size and complexity of construction, it is simply too time-consuming and error-prone to accurately count each hanger, pipe, or panel.

Visualizing work in place allows teams to quickly identify remaining work and understand the reasons behind any delays. By sorting by “Not Complete,” superintendents and trades can better coordinate with each other, quickly identifying where they should be working next or identifying missing work. This improved clarity helps teams verify that all tasks are completed, understand their next steps, and ensure that all work is done in the correct sequence.

Additionally, knowing what is left to do is crucial for commissioning and inspection sign-offs. Failing to identify unfinished work can delay these critical milestones, impacting the overall project timeline. By using Doxel’s Work In Place visualization, teams can ensure that all necessary work is completed and ready for inspection, preventing delays and ensuring a smooth progression towards project completion.

Conclusion

Construction is complex and details matter. Doxel’s Work In Place visualization helps teams find the right information quickly. By providing a clear and accurate view of unfinished work, Doxel empowers teams to prevent costly oversights, improve efficiency, and enhance collaboration.

How Automated Progress Tracking Helps Healthcare Construction Stay On Schedule

How Automated Progress Tracking Helps Healthcare Construction Stay On Schedule

Healthcare construction is a specialized niche in the industry, and the projects within it require a high standard of attention to detail to meet their deadlines. These projects are complex and involve the coordination of large, cross-functional teams to complete them on tight schedules—which means a project’s success is majorly dependent on the efficiency and collaboration of the team building it. Enter, AI-powered project controls – automated construction progress tracking.

Why Progress Tracking is Critical for Healthcare Project Success

Why Progress Tracking is Critical for Healthcare Project Success

Healthcare construction is more complex and has a lot at stake. If not done right, these projects can be costly for everyone involved. Healthcare projects also require a higher attention to detail to keep everything running smoothly. Automated construction progress tracking can meet these requirements and reduce manual effort, helping you complete your projects faster and on-budget.
