Boosting Construction Productivity with Automation

The demand for construction services is on the rise. However, finding skilled construction labor has become increasingly difficult, putting pressure on productivity. In fact, studies have predicted that construction companies need to become three to four percent more productive every year for the foreseeable future just to stay above water. For forward-thinking contractors, the answer is automation. Technology advances in digital layout, laser scanning reality capture and 3D measurement streamline data management and eliminate unnecessary operations, enabling construction firms to use their existing resources more efficiently.

Harvey’s Engineering, based in Bozeman, MT, is experiencing the benefits of automation firsthand. In this interview, Brian Nickel explains how the ability to quickly capture an accurate 3D point cloud eliminates errors and improves prefabrication processes for mechanical and plumbing, HVAC, hydronics and sheet metal – resulting in a high-productivity approach.
