Cleantech start-up’s AI and blockchain tech aim to improve Scotland’s water infrastructure

Digitizing the construction process, as well as providing a record of all activity entering and leaving construction sites, as well as groundbreaking processes that support the delivery of large-scale national projects, are key to achieving sustainable development goals. stringent emissions, especially after the recent Glasgow Accord outlined at COP26.

DV2 is one of Scotland’s largest capital investment infrastructure programs to date, and an opportunity to show how technology can augment the building process to improve operations. Hypervine’s won its DV2 bid by introducing technologies that capture end-to-end site data that is standardized, organized and categorized, and costs and emissions recorded and accounted for.

“Hypervine has come a long way since its inception, an idea born when a wall at Oxgangs Primary School in Edinburgh collapsed without warning,” Hypervine CEO Paul Duddy said in the statement.

“Since that starting point, we have significantly expanded our product line. Our technology now helps construction companies win tenders, reduce costs and improve their carbon footprint while providing visibility into previously inaccessible site operations. We… see an exciting digital future for construction, working together to achieve Net Zero across the industry.

Construction companies and projects of this magnitude face real challenges in meeting emissions targets. The World Green Building Council calculated that 11% of global energy-related carbon emissions come from materials and construction, while cement production accounts for 8% of global carbon emissions, according to think tank Chatham House.
