Problem

Infrastructure is a key enabling factor for each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Functioning water, energy, and transportation networks, quality buildings, and wide-spread internet and communications technology all facilitate and enhance achievements in health, education, social development, economic growth, and more (Infrastructure: Underpinning Social Development, UNOPS). Globally, more than $3.4 trillion per year is invested in infrastructure; however, building and maintaining quality infrastructure is a common challenging facing governments, development actors, multilateral organizations, and private companies worldwide. Low quality or poorly built infrastructure has significant long-term impacts on finances, growth, and health and safety. Both poor design — such as the failure to use appropriate technology or account for local contextual issues — and poor implementation — the failure to construct infrastructure as designed — contribute to low quality and poor results.

Solution

Engineers at workFieldSight is the first technology platform for monitoring and quality assurance in infrastructure, humanitarian, and development projects. Designed to tackle many of the specific issues that arise when implementing infrastructure projects, FieldSight aims to improve the quality and integrity of infrastructure projects worldwide. FieldSight consists of both mobile and web apps. The mobile apps are designed to support and enhance the work of engineers, site supervisors, and others working in the field. They can use the mobile app to record information about the status and progress of infrastructure projects, access key information about the project and quality standards, and communicate with project managers. The web app allows technical and management staff to review data from the field, communicate with field staff, and explore and analyze data at site, regional, project, and organizational levels.
