BLOX BUILT, Bessemer, Alabama

THE SITUATION:

BLOX Built is at the cutting edge of construction, using a new method called Design, Manufacture, and Construct (DMC). BLOX offers a building delivery system that leverages manufacturing to simplify the construction phase. BLOX’s cross-functional teams of architects, manufacturers, and tradesmen design and manufacture the modules in their Bessemer, AL plant. The facility has over a million square feet of production space and includes an on-site intermodal that connects them to every rail, truck, and port in North America. Working with an extensive network of general contractors who snap the BLOX modular systems into place, the BLOX team can quickly complete multiple construction projects across the nation.

THE CHALLENGE:

BLOX applies DMC manufacturing techniques to produce pre-built medical modules such as hospital bathrooms, foot and headwalls, MEP racks, patient rooms, exam rooms, trauma rooms and fully equipped Free Standing Emergency departments. These rooms are then injected into the construction of hospitals and various healthcare facilities around the country, ensuring a quicker and more efficient build.

In order to monitor the progress of their modules from factory floor to numerous construction sites throughout the country, BLOX sought out affordable project cameras that were easy to set-up and relocate, were remotely managed and did not require on-site power. BLOX also required versatile time-lapse video tools.

THE SOLUTION:

After vetting several options, BLOX selected Sensera Systems for their robust, low-cost construction camera solutions for their fast-moving projects. Sensera was able to provide BLOX with the cameras they needed to monitor their projects from start to finish—from the production lines in their factory in Bessemer, AL to the numerous construction sites spread throughout the country—the BLOX team has the ability to monitor a project’s progress in real-time even when they aren’t on-site.
