Sir Robert McAlpine has announced the adoption of ground-breaking AI technology platform Buildots, as its preferred partner.

Buildots will automatically analyse data from Sir Robert McAlpine sites across the UK, captured by wearable 360-degree cameras.

Using AI and computer vision, it generates true-to-life project progress reports, identifying risks of delays and opportunities for productivity gains, which in turn provides project managers with more control, outcome certainty, and facilitates shorter project delivery times.

The technology has already been rolled out across a number of Sir Robert McAlpine sites, including the new BEACH Building project at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital currently, which is being delivered by Integrated Health Projects (IHP), a joint venture between Sir Robert McAlpine and VINCI Construction UK.

Sir Robert McAlpine is currently in the planning stages of deploying the technology across a number of additional sites around the UK.

Nick Leach, Director of Digital Construction, Sir Robert McAlpine, said: “A partnership with an innovative platform such as Buildots aligns perfectly with our growing emphasis on delivering data-driven, efficient and sustainable projects. This type of technology is a great tool, which allows us to deliver value to our clients and the communities that we work within.”

Roy Danon, Buildots CEO and co-founder, added: “Sir Robert McAlpine’s decision to add Buildots to its list of preferred suppliers is a really meaningful testament to the benefits we have been able to provide them on multiple sites. We look forward to bringing that transparency and efficiency to many future projects with Sir Robert McAlpine and other leading construction firms in the UK and internationally.”
