PCL Construction is stepping up its water damage prevention capabilities through a new partnership with Toronto-based Eddy Solutions.

Earlier this month, the Canadian contractor said it will merge its in-house Job Site Insights smart construction platform with the water monitoring and leak mitigation technologies offered by Eddy.

“Job Site Insights is surpassing our expectations by reducing costly rework, enhancing productivity, improving build quality, safety, and eliminating insurance claims and schedule impacts,” PCL’s chief information officer, Mark Bryant, said in a release. “Protecting our projects from water damage is just one more offering that JSI brings to our clients.”

PCL said water damage is the biggest risk to construction sites and property, representing about 60 per cent of all real estate claims. The new partnership is expected to better protect the contractor’s job sites from damaging leaks.
