Weather enabled decision support is reshaping how the construction industry operates
In the interactive infographic by AXA XL, the global insurance and reinsurance company together with Engineering News-Record (ENR) highlight three leading edge technologies on the connected construction site: imaging, wearables and site monitoring. Today, leading general contractors (GCs) and construction managers (CMs) are leveraging a broad spectrum of weather site monitoring technologies such as weather sensoring and modeling, atmospheric conditions sensoring and modeling, and many other types of sensoring and modeling.
Alerting stakeholders to changing weather conditions and safety hazards
Further, the interactive infographic explains how sensors, such as weather stations, weather webcams and data loggers, mounted throughout the construction site, alert safety managers, general superintendents, field engineers, equipment operators, work crews, and other stakeholders to changing weather conditions and safety hazards. And, the data collected from the weather stations, weather webcams and data loggers can then be aggregated and analyzed to mitigate weather risks and schedule impacts. AXA XL is a subsidiary of global insurance and reinsurance company AXA.
New technology tools improve safety and productivity yielding tremendous benefits
AXA XL affirms that the new weather site monitoring technologies improve safety and productivity, yielding tremendous benefits across the construction industry and built environment — and, avoiding insurance claims and project delays. On balance, AXA XL notes potential cyber risks and insurance coverage questions with weather site monitoring technologies. What are the potential cyber risks associated with the connected construction site? How are you deploying weather enabled decision support solutions purpose-built for the construction industry?
