Remote Site Management at Brookfield Residential

Challenge

Land development professionals are responsible for multiple project sites across large geographic areas, spending up to six hours a day on the road. Without being on site each day, decisions are delayed, issues are not identified early, and it negatively affects the project schedule.

The TraceAir Solution

Before TraceAir, Vice President of Land Development at Brookfield Residential, Gonzalo Rodriguez, spent hours driving each jobsite, tracking progress, and resolving issues on site. "I couldn't be as effective because I couldn't physically drive each jobsite as often as I needed to. Our projects suffered from things not getting done," he recalled.

Gonzalo and his team began using TraceAir to manage Brookfield Residential's portfolio of projects in the Bay Area. TraceAir's web-based software provides the ability to view high-resolution aerial images of each project from the office, home, or while traveling. Gonzalo was able to leverage technology to minimize long drives between job sites.

TraceAir's collaborative platform allows project teams to communicate information, plan sequencing, track material quantities and site balance, and prevent costly delays without being on site.

Using TraceAir, Gonzalo is able to access his projects from any location, saving hours on the road. TraceAir's easy-to-use, cloud-based software allows teams to communicate progress, resolve issues effectively, and keep projects on schedule.

With TraceAir, I've extended my ability to see our projects from the office, from home, or wherever I am.

I’m mesmerized by the engineering complexity and beauty of the process of converting the designs into functional spaces. A powerful blend of people’s creative ideas, brutal economics rules, laws of physics, and construction people’s skills and expertise makes this industry so unique. It’s incredibly cool to be a part of this process and contribute to empowering people in it.”

Alena Petrova, Product Manager

I've always been fascinated by how so many construction projects are so unique and individual, though the construction processes are the same for all of them. It is awesome to be a part of and to see how choosing to use sustainable materials, taking into account environmental factors, applying innovative engineering ideas and using digital technology make construction better, smarter and faster.” 

Olga Rollins, Operations Manager

I enjoy seeing the projects come together, each project is so different and presents a multitude of challenges that take real teamwork and collaboration to overcome. I love working with my clients in the construction industry and helping them utilize powerful tech tools to help their projects run smoothly.” 

Isabella Knori, Customer Success Manager

I’m particularly interested in the ever-evolving use of spatial data to inform decision making at all stages of construction. The increase in innovation and application, of both vector and raster data products, is really fascinating.” 

Cari Ruffino, Operations Manager

I worked at construction sites for 9 years and I can tell you that it’s so inspiring to see how your efforts grow into real objects. I was a surveyor and I saw all construction processes with my own eyes. The construction industry adapts to the technical progress so slowly, Traceair makes this process better and faster. It's why I like our company - it drives construction to the next level. We are on the way which turns the dreams of our clients into reality, and our dreams too.”

Olga Razina, GIS Specialist & Customer Success Engineer

Throughout the past  5 years in cartography & GIS, I have observed how technologies and automatization are making the industry better and faster. I find inspiring bringing this into construction to make the industry even greater! Humans are everywhere, everybody needs place, construction grows. TraceAir shows that we are able to reach our designs faster with drones help and to enjoy the process using platform, maps, tools, etc. Join us!”
