Live onsite monitoring through digitization

Within the changing environment of the construction industry, innovative tools based on digitization are emerging to help optimize construction processes. 

At Sacyr, we have an innovative tool, Dalux, that not only allows us to adapt to digitization itself, but to establish an instant communication and traceability system onsite through BIM models and graphic representation.

“This facilitates monitoring of tasks through formulas and graphic data from the site,” explains Selmison Vera Cruz Pedronho, Quality Technician at Sacyr. 



3-D rendering

“Dalux allows us to see a 3-D rendering of what we aim to carry out. Once the project design is complete and we proceed to the execution phase, this type of software comes into play to connect everyone involved (the entire chain of subcontractors, specialists, and direct managers in the construction phase) using a general 3-D model of the project as a base,” says Cruz Pedronho.

“Those responsible use Dalux to report the progress of the work underway. For our part, we ensure that the work is executed to perfection and verify its compliance,” the Quality Technician points out.

This makes it possible to involve all of the project’s key players, while providing fully transparent and accessible information. 



Useful detection of defects and errors

Sacyr is using Dalux at its Ulster University (Northern Ireland) project. “With Dalux we can maintain direct contact with the onsite work team. It allows us to anticipate potential logistical errors and detect hidden defects that may appear during the different construction phases,” Cruz Pedronho says. Sacyr also performs quality controls of all construction processes.  

Hidden defects and errors may be the fault of loose materials or debris in the work area that prevent the execution of certain tasks or cause construction processes to be poorly executed, requiring revision or reworking.


Virtual reality view

Another noteworthy use of the technology is a tool that allows the site to be viewed in virtual reality through any mobile device. “This enables us to make comparisons between the current and future state of the project, providing progress reports and detecting any minor deviations that may occur,” Cruz Pedronho explains.

With Dalux we can create a history of all the tasks that have been completed over the course of the project since they are evident. This provides traceability (execution times, construction delays, incidents, etc.) in such a way that we know the status of the project and whether it will meet the established deadlines.
