New York City Constructs First Building With Israeli AI Tech
New York City is using Israeli construction tech for the first time for real estate.
Buildots uses hardhat-mounted 360-degree cameras to capture imaging of every detail of an ongoing project. The data is then analyzed using AI to generate accurate progress reports, save management time, and avoid costly errors.
Its tech will be used to construct the new Columbus Circle Building, a 26-story, 296-ft building that will include 123 housing units in nearly 197,000 square feet of residential space, as well as over 20,000 square feet of commercial retail space.
The construction of the new building, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 60th Street, is being led by the Global Holdings Management Group and business magnate Eyal Ofer.
Buildots’ tech has already been used on construction sites across North America, Europe, and the Middle East. It most recently announced that its tech was being used by the UK’s National Health Service to build a British hospital using AI for the first time.
“We are thrilled to bring Buildots’ AI-based technology to New York City with the Columbus Circle Building project,” said Buildots CEO Roy Danon.
“Our platform offers full visibility and control on projects’ progress, enabling improved performance and efficiency, and we look forward to collaborating with Global Holdings Management Group and other leading developers on future projects in New York and beyond.”
