The Real-Time Construction Site

A webinar on technologies that improve productivity by 20-50%

Online on May 27, 2021, at 2pm UK Summer time

Real-time process control and management is no longer the prerogative of factories. With reality capture, IoT, data integration, and project management technologies, any construction site can achieve a similar control and foresight level.

Moreover, the technologies can be deployed by different participants for different purposes – from subcontractors to main contractors and project managers, to clients. Critical questions include participants’ willingness to share their data with collaborators to gain real project insights.

The Event’s Main Sponsors

Congrid offers a single platform to handle all quality and safety management on any construction project – improving quality and safety, maximizing site productivity, and reducing costs. From improved safety levels to reduced quality costs, Congrid introduces an entirely new way for delivering zero-defect properties and offers the industry a better understanding of what has been built and how it has been built.


Started by a group of enthusiasts within a construction company, Fira Smart aims to modernize how we build through data-drive and re-thinking. We combine high technology and best site management practices, enabling intelligent and collaborative scheduling and leading with data, seamless site-to-office processes, better construction quality, and significantly reduced lead time.
