Predictive Maintenance: Real-Time Analytics and Sensors to Prevent Downtime

April 19, 2021

Predictive maintenance detects possible failures before they occur – letting you correct the problem to mitigate any potential downtime or failures during construction. The industry is using the latest in IoT (Internet of Things), fatigue-sensors, machine learning, and predictive analytics to understand how long our tools can last during critical portions of the construction process. […]

Hear From Our Members Why They Love BuiltWorlds:

"I love this because you're pushing people to think not just smarter, but bigger. Not a lot of industry organizations challenge leaders like this.”

– Jonathan Z, Real Estate Executive

“BuiltWorlds bridges the gap between technology and the built industry. And it’s working. We’re opening our eyes to opportunities we never saw before.”

– Steve C, General Contractor

“BuiltWorlds is raising the level of discourse about what’s happening in this industry. Construction has stagnated. We’ve had productivity loss where all other industries has had productivity gain. BuiltWorlds is filling that gap by getting people to think about technology in a different way.”

– Summit 2018 attendee

"The BuiltWorlds ecosystem has evolved into an incredible intersection of contractors, capital, software, and technology providers. I can't recommend this organization enough."

Brian Kramer, CEO, QualityBuilt

"BuiltWorlds Venture Conference was packed full of great industry content from the leading industry investors to the superstar emerging technology start-ups."

Greg Howard, CEO, TrenLot Inc 

"I love BuiltWorlds. Your meetings have always delivered valuable content and gathered a great mix of leaders driving change in our vertical."

Paul Shahriari, Founder and CEO, ecomedes

“Impressive content delivered in digestible chunks. Well done.”

“Well done, BuiltWorlds. Rather than throw in the towel, you found a different and innovative platform for the Summit. The content was even more relevant in today’s disrupted economy, so I’m very grateful to have been able to participate–even if remotely.” -Jon Pahl, Nabholz Construction.

“BuiltWorlds is a phenomenal resource for those in the AEC industry, in particular their Summit, which brings together thought leadership and practical application of innovation that can impact the industry. Thank you for pivoting to the virtual format this year in response to COVID-19 to bring this valuable content to the masses. Well done event!”

"In an industry that is so fragmented, where each company has its own unique challenges, organisations like Builtworlds take the critical role of matching partners sharing a common vision so that the magic can happen. Making our first steps in the US with the new program is an easy choice, as it would assure we build our foundations in the market with the right partners." 

-Roy Danon - Co-Founder & CEO, Buildots


"In an industry that is so fragmented, where each company has its own unique challenges, organizations like BuiltWorlds take the critical role of matching partners sharing a common vision so that the magic can happen."
