Screening Eagle Finds Success on Singapore Construction Site

Use Case

Singapore Engineering & Construction Pte. Ltd. has successfully deployed Screening Eagle’s app-based 3D issue tracking module at the Wisteria project, a S$186 million mixed-use (condominium and mall) development in Singapore.

The digitised inspection workflow and issue tracking module enables users to record an issue in a 3D Building Information Model (BIM), assign it, update it and communicate with their team as they work to solve and verify it.

By adopting Screening Eagle, Singapore Engineering & Construction minimised its paperwork and streamlined the communication among multiple stakeholders for enhanced quality assurance.

The issue tracking tool records issues at their specific location on a 3D model of a building, and notes, photos and comments can be recorded against it.

Inspection data is then visualised in the BIM model with full traceability, enabling analytic capabilities and making issue tracking more intuitive and comprehensive.

The App fully supports iPad, iPhone, Android and Web.

Watch here how the Wisteria project used Screening Eagle to track construction defects, reduce paper-work and enhance project communication.

Screening Eagle is an infrastructure management technology platform from Tectus Dreamlab. Find out more about Screening Eagle here.

Drones and AI the Future of Solar Panel Inspection

Use Case

Tectus Dreamlab is close to solving the difficulties of rooftop solar panel inspection — using drone-shot video combined with artificial intelligence (AI) processing to identify faults.

Trials in Singapore, where the Government expects to have 5,500 public housing blocks with solar panels by 2020, have helped develop an AI system that can identify individual solar panels from video footage and communicate to operators where remedial action is required.

The inspection data is recorded on a 3D BIM (Building Information Model) of the rooftops to give a highly accurate representation of its real-world location.

Defects are automatically detected and recorded on the system, which will be accessible from cloud-based storage over the web and on mobile devices, and as a component of Screening Eagle, the Tectus Dreamlab infrastructure management platform.

Tectus Dreamlab is working with BBR Greentech, the large-scale owner of solar panels on Singapore public housing, on the project.

BBR Greentech requires regular inspection and maintenance of its panels to prevent damage from bird-droppings and dirt. However, the roof-tops are a high-risk work environment, and general workers lack inspection knowledge. Traditional paper records have been unreliable and inefficient. Drones and AI have solved their issues.
