The firestopping assessment process is challenging as it takes time to detect unsealed penetrations, which greatly contribute to the rapid spread of fire and smoke.
Even with strict protocols in place, there are always last-minute installations and the possibility of human error in sealing up rated wall penetrations, which could endanger staff and patients during an emergency.
As a result, maintaining quality is expensive, accounting for 5% to 20% of total project costs. Besides that, quality issues can be severe and could number in the hundreds. For example, in a 500-unit residential complex, there could be 20 quality concerns logged per unit. This translates into 10,000 punch list issues that must be identified, tracked and rectified.
Multivista overcomes these challenges by automating the detection of unsealed penetrations via leveraging two cutting-edge construction technologies: image recognition and advanced reality capture.
