Ssangyong Engineering & Construction (Ssangyong E&C) has expanded the use of quick response (QR) codes from material management to overall process management.
Ssangyong E&C announced on Oct. 21 that it has applied the "Digital Construction Management Platform" to the construction site of Dubai Royal Atlantis Resort & Residence, which allows workers to check the construction progress in real time based on QR codes.
The platform allows workers to check or update work progress with a smart device app by scanning QR codes posted on building walls. By using the platform, workers can comment on inspection results, record pictures, send alarms to the manager of the following work process immediately after completing a preceding process and visualize cloud data of up to 100 GB with charts or graphs.
Ssangyong E&C developed the system in cooperation with Sablono, a German construction management software developer. “Only when a work connection between preceding and following processes is properly made, we can finish construction work in time and ensure safety at construction sites.” a Ssangyong E&C official said.
Meanwhile, the Dubai Royal Atlantis Resort & Residence project will build three buildings (24, 34 and 44 floors) with 795 rooms and three residence buildings (21, 28 and 38 floors) with 231 rooms.
