A new building at the Royal Bournemouth Hospital is the first healthcare facility in the UK to be built using artificial intelligence (AI) technology from Israel’s Buildots to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
Buildots’ technology automatically analyzes data captured in the field via a 360-degree camera on the helmet.
The platform then generates realistic progress reports backed by vision, providing managers and stakeholders with accurate, objective data and analysis for greater efficiency.
The Royal Bournemouth Hospital’s new 22,650m² BEACH building (Natural, Emergency and Intensive Care, Child Health) was built by Integrated Health Projects to high sustainability standards as part of the refurbishment of Dorset University Hospital (NHS) (Super HD) Hospital.
“By embracing Buildots intelligence technology, we are able to use AI and 3D model vision to effectively track the progress of the build compared to design and schedule to help ensure we stay on track,” said IHP Program Director Bruce Preston.
Steve Killen, UHD’s transformation director, said the NHS uses public money, “and the Buildots technology is a great example of how we can use cutting-edge technology to help deliver the best value for money to the taxpayer.”
The BEACH building is scheduled to open in early 2025.
Aviv Leibovici, Chief Product Officer at Buildots, said: “The new Royal Bournemouth Hospital complex is complex, with dedicated facilities for maternity and pediatrics, as well as emergency and intensive care.”
“We are proud that Buildots was able to complete this complex project in the most efficient manner.”
