Construction Intelligence

Change the way you use data to run your built environment.

By delivering data-led intelligence we can transform the way your people and systems work together and help you drive the business forward.  

Pentagon’s Construction Intelligence

Pentagon has conducted extensive research whilst implementing a Construction Intelligence framework process, delivering asset integration projects based on this method. 

We find that many contractors have a lack of visibility on project delivery and aggregate information from multiple sources. As an example: team timesheets, estimated detailing and modelling activity, quality of model delivery, etc.

For efficient project management within the built environment, multiple streams of information need to be centralised – that’s where Construction Intelligence comes in. Essentially it addresses project quality, productivity outputs, and risk management and can assist in predictability for future projects, regardless of technology. 

“Construction Intelligence overcomes a segmented manual or semi-automated engineering process, which in turn causes data silo’s, project over-runs and eventually indecision by key stake holders…. Which in turn causes massive inefficiencies during the project or when tendering for new business. ”

Construction Intelligence

Through our platform, all issues and project constraints can be recorded and collected in the dashboard, ensuring efficient oversight that can easily identify risk. Our solution is scalable to your business, it relies on human (user) input and is completely flexible to accommodate your operation.  

With visual measures and automated solutions, our Construction Intelligence platform allows you to track progress, anticipate risks and ensure effective project management. 

Pentagon Construction Intelligence Interface

Empowering the construction industry with cutting-edge technology, our Construction Intelligence Interface is user-friendly and designed to streamline operations and enhance project outcomes. 

This interface offers a comprehensive suite of features that provide company-wide visibility, facilitate multi-user data logging, and enable seamless updates to quality issues and constraints. 

Here’s a closer look at what our Construction Intelligence Interface provides:

  • Company-wide visibility of BIM Project data for quality, constraints, dashboards and other bespoke utilities
  • Multi-user data logging forms and
  • Allows updates to Quality Issues and Constraints without the need for CAD applications
  • Reports presented (e.g. Microsoft PowerBI)
  • Other Features
    • Project-specific data segregation
    • Integrates with Microsoft Azure single sign-on

How does it work?

Traditionally your teams fill out timesheets on projects they are working on and they may manually estimate modelling output. All of this data is normally reviewed on an individual basis. 

Our solution captures and harvests all activity automatically from projects, drawings and models across all teams over multiple sites.  All of the project data is automatically collated regarding activity and outputs.


Construction Intelligence

This centralised data is presented through straightforward dashboards for project team leaders and senior management. Project modelling outputs, quality and effort data points are readily available which helps teams to focus on productivity concerns and even drive predictability of project delivery or assist with pricing future projects.
