WeatherBuild Use Cases
Lightning Safety Notifications
Communication of the weather events is critical to all stakeholders, which is why WeatherBuild leverages email, text, and slack to ensure everyone is in sync. WeatherBuild can monitor specific areas and provide automated communications, letting crews and partners know when dangerous events, like lightning, are expected to occur within a designated radius. Once the threat has left the area, WeatherBuild notifies the impacted parties that the "All Clear" has been given and it is safe to return to the location. WeatherBuild eliminates the need for multiple generic, error-prone weather apps.
High Wind Forecasts
High winds can devastate construction projects. Peak vulnerability is during crane operations. With multiple wind measurements, customers can take advantage of the industry’s leading weather intelligence technology. Unlike the generic forecasts from the commonly used consumer weather apps, WeatherBuild forecasts are specific to the exact project location. WeatherBuild provides forecasts for wind speed and wind gusts at ground level, 50 meters above ground, and 100 meters above ground. Customers track adverse weather conditions and predict when unsafe conditions will disrupt operations and endanger people and equipment.
Project Management Software Integration
WeatherBuild allows operators to monitor and execute their standard operating procedures and job-specific safety guidelines. As a result, WeatherBuild reduces 40% of schedule delays and cost overruns while also increasing worker productivity by 30%. Leverage automated decision science that uses machine learning to predict the impact of weather events, automatically update schedules and notify teams through Trimble CrewSight, Procore, Oracle Primavera P6, and other 3rd-party software tools.
Mitigate Risk with Historical Records
WeatherBuild enables customers to capture historical data and record if and when project teams experienced weather delays, on what days, and at what periods during each work shift and workday. WeatherBuild is used extensively in insurance claims and legal cases involving workers, equipment, and project delays. Confirm the day, location, alerts, events, and distribution list to verify or audit the weather condition that leads to a claim.
