Hyper-local Weather Data for Time Handling
By CIO Applications | Wednesday, January 09, 2019
The frequent fluctuations occurring in the climate creates an impact on the construction industry by reducing the durability of building material and affecting the indoor climate of the building. In order to overcome such weather conditions, many organizations with technological innovations are playing a key role in aiding the construction industry. These organizations are providing effective decisions about construction with an efficient project, facility, and asset management. Businesses need the capability to manage and measure the maintenance tasks, equipment operations, and get positive results. Also, they require innovative applications for decision support, predictive analysis, and planning process for construction.

Adam Omansky, the founder of WeatherBuild highlights, “Scheduled reports and real-time alerts, such as lightning strike alerts and all clear notifications, now include site-specific times by time zone code for Standard Time and for Daylight Saving Time (DST).”
The decision support solution of WeatherBuild is now extended with a new advanced featured for time handling. The data for the time handling process is present in the data analytics platform of the WeatherBuild solution. This data is the integrated information about the hyper-local weather, which is noted from a wide area. There are several WeatherBuild apps with various functions. WeatherBuild Notify sends the automatic report to the project team about the hyper-local weather; WeatherBuild History sends the report with the claim management tools.
The company helps the construction companies to increase productivity and optimize the time of the workers in the process. It provides safety to the project, workers, equipment, and resources utilized during construction.
