FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Enhanced thunderstorm alerts with time series and history log for general contractors (GC), construction managers (CM), engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) contractors, and operations & maintenance (O&M) contractors
CAMBRIDGE, MA, October 29, 2018 — WeatherBuild®, Decision Support Solutions for the Construction Industry and Built Environment®, is proud to announce the release of enhanced thunderstorm alerts. The new release of enhanced thunderstorm alerts features a time series and history log of alerts — how thunderstorms and other severe weather change over time with respect to each construction project and site operation.
Across the non-residential building and non-building structure market sectors, leading contractors, owners and operators leverage enhanced thunderstorm alerts for weather safety and risk management:
- Safety: monitor thunderstorms, lightning strikes, and other severe weather in a time series, to enhance the health, safety and environment (HSE) of each construction project and site operation.
- Risk management: Leverage the history log of alerts for risk management and dispute resolution, as quality controlled climatological data to assess work stoppages as a result of thunderstorms.
As a part of the WeatherBuild Basic solution, hyper-local weather risk and lightning reports with automated delivery to your project teams, leading contractors, owners and operators get enhanced thunderstorm alerts through a variety of means including email message, text message or SMS (Short Message Service), push notification, iOS mobile report, and web portal report, for example.
WeatherBuild records each change in a thunderstorm history log, and then sends an alert about the change, depending on the degree of the change over time during the lifespan of the thunderstorm. Examples include changes in the severity level of the thunderstorm, from Level 1: Low Severity Thunderstorm to Level 2: Moderate Severity Thunderstorm to Level 3: Dangerous Thunderstorm Alert.
- Level 1: Low Severity Thunderstorm
- Level 2: Moderate Severity Thunderstorm
- Level 3: Dangerous Thunderstorm Alert (DTA)
Other examples of changes in thunderstorms include the forecast and actual start times and finish times, the geospatial boundaries of thunderstorms with respect to each construction project and site operation, and other severe weather associated with thunderstorms such as lightning strikes, high intensity rain events, high intensity wind and wind gust events, hail events, and tornadic activity.
