Reimagining capital projects

Transformation of capital projects through the use of digital technologies

This is reimagining construction

For decades the capital projects industry has been delivering some of the most important and iconic projects of our time; however, true digital enablement and project intelligence remains out of reach. It’s time to move into a new era of capital project delivery; one which utilises the latest advances in digital technology and harnesses the power of cutting edge analytics to delivery real value, confidence and control for our clients.

This is reimagining construction.

Realising Value from Technology

We understand how to generate business value from technology. Value creation requires integration and business transformation, from early stage project investment strategy, through project delivery, and onward to handover, commissioning and operation. We can instil confidence through the bespoke selection and integration of digital technologies and enhanced data analytics to bring powerful insights and control.

The Digital Built Environment

We take a holistic view of our clients data to identify those key integration points that will deliver real business value and develop applications to make this insight accessible to the people who need it. Typically this would include making connections between asset data, project controls systems and new data sources available from field technologies: for example, combining a BIM / GIS digital asset database, schedule data and GPS site data feeds we have created a combined planning tool that can propel the resource management of critical construction projects into the digital age.

Advanced Data Analytics

A static schedule with thousands of activity lines often provide very limited insight to decision making; our analytics focuses on a data-enriched, manageable plan.

Collecting project specific communications, schedule and external data relevant to your programme portfolio.  We create a rich data environment that connects people and events to schedule activities and programme level priorities. This innovative approach serves to enhance the team’s project delivery effectiveness and gives greater sight of the on-the-ground challenges as they transpire.

We combine drones and artificial intelligence to help clients with complex infrastructure projects

This short film show's how we combine strategy consulting with specialised knowledge regarding advanced image data analytics and the newest innovations offered by artificial intelligence or machine learning.  Large, complex projects require constant supervision to facilitate smooth processes and avoid delays, or claims from unreliable partners. Using recent technological breakthroughs and combining the advanced skills of our teams with enormous abilities of machines, PwC can help with numerous problems, the clients from infrastructure, as well as agriculture, insurance, mining, energy or other sectors, may have.
