Juneau Construction Company and Buildots have announced their collaboration on the project, called Hub Knoxville. This student housing project comprises three buildings with a total area of more than 800,000 sq. ft. and will accommodate almost 2,000 students at UT Knoxville, the flagship campus of the University of Tennessee system.

The Buildots platform uses data from 360-degree cameras at the construction site, which is then analysed using proprietary AI algorithms. The Juneau team receives accurate and detailed progress reports and forecasts, allowing them to anticipate and address potential delays, improve schedule adherence, and enhance overall project efficiency.

Hub Knoxville is said to be the first student housing project in the United States to utilise Buildots technology. The complex, designed by Dwell Design Studio and developed by Core Spaces, will include nearly 600 units. 

“Juneau is constantly looking to improve quality and efficiency to increase the value we bring to our clients. With Buildots, we are able to have exceptional control and visibility when it comes to large and complex projects like Hub Knoxville. We have already seen how it’s helping have better insights into the execution of the work in the field, ultimately allowing us to improve quality control and avoid delays, ensuring that UTK students will enjoy a truly exceptional new housing option,” said Greg Cornwell, Juneau’s VP of Operations.

“We’re proud to partner with Juneau Construction and pleased to see how their use of Buildots and our Performance Driven Construction Management (PDCM) method has been able to minimise project delays and increase efficiency at Hub Knoxville. We look forward to continuing to work with them to ensure that highly accurate, data-driven insights guide major construction projects across the Southeast,” said Aviv Leibovici, Buildots co-founder and CPO.
