CRYPTOGEOMETRY: FROM TWEETS TO HASH FUNCTIONS IN REPORTING THE CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS
Cryptogeometry is a digital tool for prefabricated building element tracking that enables project progress overview throughout the whole supply chain in an interactive web-based 3D environment. This paper will address some of the common challenges in contemporary construction, particularly concerning effective communication of building construction progress and show how those were addressed in the design of the application itself.
Key identified challenges will be presented within the context of steel spaceframe and façade construction on a major project in Singapore, as well as how were the challenges partially or completely resolved in author’s capacity as computational design specialist on the job.
In the aftermath of project completion and the author’s engagement with the specialist contractor company, lessons learned have thereafter served as a basis for the development of Cryptogeometry as an independent cloud application. In that respect, the objective of this paper is to demonstrate how the gap is closed between the observed problems and their possible solutions, embodied in the form of a digital tool in construction technology space.
