In a key report for the World Economic Forum SHAPING THE FUTURE OF CONSTRUCTION, the Boston Consulting Group notes that “The industry has the potential for improving productivity and efficiency, thanks to digitalization and new technologies.” Success in this sector requires a breakthrough in technology to support measuring and reporting environmental sustainability of key materials and products used in construction projects.
One of the most productive areas where construction firms can use new technology to add to the value they bring to customers, is the evaluation and selection of materials and products for their projects. By using science-based product performance data side-by-side with cost comparison data, firms can use advanced technology to optimize the economic and environmental performance of a project, even a client’s entire project portfolio!
Sphere-E has developed an innovative suite of state- of- the- art data analytic tools that will empower you to measure the economic and environmental performance of a project or an entire portfolio of projects. This system features science-based product life cycle data on key materials used to compare the sustainability level achieved by like materials or products. The data is used to produce a cost/environmental sustainability performance assessment on each product being considered for purchase.
Sphere-E’s team of experts develops leadership benchmarks and uses them to arrive at robust comparison of the environmental performance of products serving the same function. Their data analytics transform complex product data into easily-understood visualizations which enable construction firms to report how their purchases have improved project sustainability performance to mitigate risks. These processes would contribute science-based data to the usefulness of other programs – BIM programs, BREEAM, Envision, Green Globes, LEED, etc.
