Pillar Technologies: Smart Risk Management for Construction Sites

Jan 10 2017

Pillar Technologies has developed smart sensors and an analysis tool that addresses and solves the often costly problem of environmental damage to construction sites during the construction process.

Utilizing an array of sensors strategically placed throughout the site, Pillar collects valuable data on environmental factors from humidity to noise volume and uploads it onto its cloud. From there the backend of the service analyzes the data to alert the site managers to any current or potential issues, potentially saving the contractors significant amounts of time and money.

Contractors have access to their job site data 24/7 in real time via the service’s app, and receive notifications whenever Pillar detects anything amiss.

Pillar’s predictive analysis of gathered data also aims to determine what conditions tend to cause the most accidents, allowing contractors to adjust practices and policies to avoid costly mishaps, potentially saving thousands in court fees and compensation for injuries.
