TWO OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST INNOVATIVE COMPANIES JOIN FORCES TO TAKE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY INTO THE FUTURE
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Leading heavy lift crane specialists The Men From Marr’s (Marr Contracting Pty Ltd) have collaborated with tech start-up BuildAI to fast-track artificial intelligence (AI) on work sites and take the construction industry into the future.
In what is the first strategic partnership and significant investment since BuildAI launched in 2019, The Men From Marr’s have taken a minority stake in the start-up and their cranes will be the first in the world to adopt BuildAI technology, a cloud based AI software system that automatically reports construction progress.
The partnership brings together two of the most innovative companies in Australia’s construction industry in what is poised to be a ‘smartphone moment’ that will revolutionise work sites in the same way that apps replaced ATMs and Uber disrupted the taxi industry.
Marr’s Managing Director Simon Marr said adding BuildAI's artificial intelligence to the company’s cranes would allow Marr’s and its clients to use real-time data to dramatically improve overall project outcomes at an important time when businesses needed to think differently about how to drive productivity and efficiency.
All of Marr’s cranes – including the M2480D which is the world’s largest capacity tower crane – are currently fitted with remote data logging and monitoring systems, and with the world-first addition of BuildAI's technology, Marr’s will be able to access this data from anywhere in the world to see how efficiently their cranes are being used and how they are interacting with the overall project schedule.
Mr Butcher said the technology was designed to support project teams at site and head office level on current and future projects.
BuildAI is currently working with other industry leaders that focus on safety, quality and efficiency gains by harnessing AI and site data. And starting with The Men From Marr’s – whose cranes are currently working on some of the nation’s biggest projects including the Sydney Metro, Sydney Football Stadium and Crown Sydney – BuildAI is forming new partnerships and customer engagements within the construction ecosystem to bring this innovative product to the wider sector.
