Remote Quality Control: The Secret to Avoiding Costly Rework

By nature, the construction industry uses many resources to build, renovate, and maintain buildings and structures. Still, whether due to defects or rework, up to ten percent of construction materials wind up wasted. It doesn’t have to be this way. Remote quality control tools such as reality mapping can help eliminate unnecessary resource burn… or even prevent defects and rework in the first place.

Regardless of the physical distance between on-site construction and operations teams and remote stakeholders, reality mapping erases the disconnect between teams by creating a shared, consistent, realistic 3D experience of a project. In addition, stakeholders can use reality mapping data to conduct remote walk-throughs, re-inspect previous work, conduct visual quality assurance and quality control, clarify confusion about next steps, and even overlay design drawings and BIM to identify actual or potential quality concerns.

In this article, we’ll zero in on how reality mapping technology can vastly improve remote quality control efforts throughout a building’s lifecycle, saving all stakeholders time, stress, and money—especially when it comes to rework.

Reality mapping technology is finally efficient and accessible

In the past, stakeholders needed laser scanners and highly-trained, on-site experts to capture construction progress. But breakthroughs in Reconstruct’s reality mapping technology have enabled existing, on-site teams to rapidly capture construction progress using affordable, everyday technology like smartphones, 360 cameras, and drones. Once reality capture is complete, Reconstruct’s engine generates a truly immersive walkthrough of a job site, along with 3D models and 2D floor plans of what’s been captured.

These reality maps are automatically configured and highly accurate, allowing even remote stakeholders to measure the tiniest corners of a construction project down to the centimeter—or even the subcentimeter. And because reality capture with a smartphone, 360 camera, and drone is more efficient and less expensive than laser scanning, it’s much easier for teams to keep up with reality capture walks, conduct visual progress monitoring, improve communication with off-site teams, and reap the benefits of frequent quality control inspections.

While there is a time and a place for laser scanning, most stakeholders find that a quick reality capture using everyday equipment provides quite a sharp lens for remote quality control. Using Reconstruct’s digital twin of a construction site, stakeholders can catch quality control issues before these mistakes turn into costly rework and jeopardize the project’s timeline or budget.
