Quartz Systems, a construction technology business, has released two new recent product updates.
FREMONT, CA: Quartz Systems, a construction technology business that uses innovative perception systems to track and analyze everything on a job site, has released two new recent product updates: 1) the ability to follow work progress automatically, and 2) improvements in Concrete Deck Analysis, a tool that quickly verifies deck element placement and detects missing or mismatched pieces before pouring concrete.
“Our product is an easy-to-use tool that focuses on three core areas: progress, productivity, and prediction. Quartz enables teams to track and understand their progress, improve site productivity, and, when necessary, predict impacts to schedule or budget based on their workflows. To date, our customers have been able to track work progress in 4K with Quartz Site Vision. Now, we are piloting the first generation of automated work progress tracking at sites across the country,” said Jeremy Conrad, CEO and co-founder of Quartz.
Keeping track of progress is an essential part of managing everyday tasks on any website. Quartz is releasing the first version of automated job progress tracking as part of a few experiments. Project managers can get daily information on how work is progressing in comparison to schedules. Quartz will soon ingest site schedules and use photogrammetry data to deliver status updates, such as tracking progress on specific activities by working deck zone. Innovative productivity tracking and planning, and budget estimates, will be included in future releases.
Quartz is also expanding its concrete deck scanning abilities with Concrete Deck Analysis, a solution that helps project managers reduce waste, prevent rework, and speed up concrete pours by identifying missing pieces prior to the pour. Concrete Deck Analysis can now give element verification with an accuracy of a one-sub inch.
“The latest advancements in hardware and image processing now allow us to provide element verification at higher resolution than ever before. We are working steadily towards dimensional verification. Eventually, this will eliminate the need for drones in vertical construction and reduce and replace expensive laser scanning,” said Conor Lenahan, Head of Product and co-founder of Quartz.
