Contech startup Hypervine has won a six-year contract with Scottish Water and Morrison Construction to reduce inefficiencies in the country’s water infrastructure and lower emissions.
The works are part of the £5bn Scottish Water DV2, one of Scotland’s largest capital investment infrastructure programs to date.
Hypervine will use its AI and blockchain technology to provide data and measurable site metrics for the construction process.
By combining data captured from satellites, Hypervine provides accurate site data that brings predictability to site activities.
Paul Duddy, CEO and founder of Hypervine, commented: “Hypervine has come a long way since its inception, an idea spawned when a wall at Oxgangs Primary School in Edinburgh collapsed with ‘no warning’.
“Since that starting point, we have grown our product stack significantly, our technology now helps construction firms win bids, reduce costs and improve their carbon footprints whilst giving visibility over previously unattainable site operations.
“We are proud partners in this and see an exciting digital future for construction, working together to reach Net Zero across the industry.”
Paul Ingham, operations director Scotland for Morrison Construction, said: “After trialling Hypervine on some of our sites, we saw an opportunity to invite Hypervine as a partner on our DV2 bid to Scottish Water.
“Working with Hypervine has been both informative and a pleasure; the team’s dedication and attention to detail has helped shape the framework, adding alternative options to our capabilities in achieving Operational Excellence and building a sustainable future for our customers and communities.”
