Built Different
Ep 2 | New tech adoption with John Andres of ANDRES Construction Services
May 11, 2022
John Andres, Operations Technology Manager at ANDRES Construction Services, is a third-generation Texas builder who grew up in construction. What started as an internship pulling nails out of boards has led to a career in discovering and implementing construction tech to make Andres more profitable and efficient. Hear more on John's journey, the story that convinced him to trade the field for the office, and how StructionSite allows Andres to tackle issues and solve problems that arise during construction.
Visual documentation in the construction industry is vital as it helps keep records for project tracking. It also supports remote-tracking by stakeholders who cannot be onsite and helps with protection against litigation and historical record-keeping, among other things. Site photography using 360ยฐ imaging, drone photos, and time-lapse imagery all help stakeholders monitor issues and track progress and performance. Using this method, stakeholders can supervise workers on job sites, monitor costs, ensure plans and site action align and increase their overall productivity.
