The client had several goals for the project. The first one was to make sure that a supervisor can quickly obtain data about a single construction worker anytime. The next step was to automate documentation, notifying staff about work quality and safety violations.
The ultimate goal was to deliver a multi-layered CRM infrastructure allowing supervisors to control the entire workflow: from workers' activity to document management. Our foremost contribution was to create an automated access system allowing users to keep track of each and every action taken on the construction site and minimize risks associated with the human factor.
A QR code is attached to the worker's helmet - by scanning the code, the manager receives access to the full profile:
This data can be exported in text format and used as a work report.
Access Control List provides clients with multi-layered access configurations - users receive rights for viewing, managing, and editing worker profiles.
Interface-wise, it looks like an intuitive dashboard where people can sort through entries, preview the locations, and monitor the construction progress. The access level and, consequently, the available functionality depend on the user role.
The platform allows creating object access requests in the form of electronic applications instead of physical paper applications.
The project stores a massive database of construction objects. It allows general contractors to get full control over the ongoing processes and helps maintain engineering documentation in the future.
The objects are displayed on the dashboard. One can quickly find the necessary one, apply changes, or delete the object. In case the deleted object gets relevant again, we implemented the soft delete functionality. It means that the deleted object is not displayed in the dashboard but remains stored in the database.
Each object has multiple areas with different access levels. The Site Areas section features a dashboard with full information about each area of the construction site, showing the current workflow and the access timing.
Each application is assigned with a unique QR code facilitating access based on the user role. The code contains information on the worker's profile with a photo, work admissions, and violations.
QR code is used at the checkpoint as admission to the construction site. Supervisors can scan the code on the worker's helmet to control their work and possible violations. On top of that, surveillance cameras scan the codes to detect unauthorized access immediately.
Access to certain areas requires attending relevant briefings: from basic safety training to specialized orientations for hazardous works. The system shows if the worker has attended the necessary ones and allows assigning them.
If a worker violates the rules, it would be displayed in the violations log. When a new violation is detected, the system automatically sends the report to the employer.
The Rocketech team conducted the performance, load, and interface testing throughout the workflow. Also, we tested business logic and made a few interface adjustments along the way.
