Client University Hospitals Dorset (UHD) said it is the first hospital facility in the UK being built using the technology from Buildots which automatically analyses data captured at the site via helmet-mounted 360-degree cameras.
The platform then generates accurate progress reports supported by visuals, providing managers and stakeholders with accurate, objective data and in-depth analysis.
The Royal Bournemouth Hospital’s new BEACH building (Births, Emergency And Critical Care, Children’s Health) will include a new purpose-built maternity unit, purpose-built children’s unit, enhanced emergency department and critical care unit.
The BEACH Building is planned to open in early 2025 and forms part of the £250m transformation of UHD’s hospitals, including Poole and Christchurch Hospitals.
IHP have been on site since November 2021 with the Buildots system introduced late last year.
Bruce Preston, Project Director, IHP: “We’re proud that the BEACH building construction is the first NHS transformation project to use this great system.
“By embracing Buildots smart technology, we’re able to use AI and 3D model vision to efficiently track build progress compared with design and schedule to help ensure we remain on course.”
