SEATTLE--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Seattle-based Pavia Systems, the leading software and technology firm focused exclusively on infrastructure construction, recently attended the weekly meeting of the Seattle Building and Construction Trades Council, which is the preeminent building trades group in Seattle. The group consists of nineteen affiliated local unions and represents more than 10,500 members in Seattle and King County Washington.
“That is so important today as the country is in the beginning stages of making improvements to the nation’s transportation infrastructure.”
Si Katara, president of Pavia Systems attended the meeting along with Leonard Levine, former transportation secretary for the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Secretary Levine discussed the current political climate in the country as it relates to repairing the nation’s transportation infrastructure indicating that we may be headed for construction projects totaling in the hundreds of millions of dollars as we begin to repair the nation’s deficient roads and bridges. Levine mentioned that Pavia Systems, which has developed a software platform called HeadLight for infrastructure construction teams will help to make these national road and bridge construction projects more efficient.
The HeadLight platform transforms information into actionable project intelligence by enabling integrated communications amongst all stakeholders. It provides meaningful insights through reports, analytics and dashboards. Management loves the platform because it helps accelerate delivery, increase accountability and reduce project risk. Users leverage the HeadLight platform through a suite of modules including the flagship – Inspect, which replaces pen and paper currently used by road and bridge construction inspectors.
Levine told the Council that the inspection tool is currently being used on a major bridge construction project in Minnesota. More than forty HeadLight inspection tools are in the hands of construction inspectors on the mile-long St. Croix River Bridge near Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN to assist in keeping the large project on budget and on time.
“For construction project inspectors, HeadLight creates more efficient day-to-day operations and results in a productivity gain of 38 hours a month per inspector,” Levine told the group. “Headlight represents a growing trend in the industry of switching to an e-Construction inspection tool that provides the power of instant information and real-time communication so badly needed on transportation construction sites today.”
HeadLight is currently being used on five Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) construction projects in the Seattle area including the SR 520 Floating Bridge and Landings project, the SR 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct tunnel and the building of new HOV lanes in two locations on Interstate 5 in Seattle.
In addition to the WSDOT projects Pavia Systems has also partnered with Everett, WA based engineering consulting firm, Perteet, Inc for the use of Headlight on state-wide projects.
“The HeadLight platform can be used on a wide range of transportation-related projects including road, bridge, and transit projects and much more,” said Si Katara. “That is so important today as the country is in the beginning stages of making improvements to the nation’s transportation infrastructure.”
