Our observational method

9 out of 10 construction projects experience cost overruns, where uncertain ground conditions constitute a key risk factor. We have conceived the following workflow that leverages an approach to reduce ground uncertainty in engineering projects via an end-to-end management and analysis of all the ground info:



1. Conceptual model based on realistic ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ฟ in the project area.

6. At each construction phase new predictions are obtained based on the updated parameters to be compared to the observations. This has a cost, delivery time and safety impact.
