Big-D Uses Bots to Improve COVID-19 Mitigation by Over 600%

Procore Technologies recently hosted their annual Groundbreak conference. Presenters and attendees gathered virtually to hear from several keynotes and panelists—including Big-D’s own Implementation & Adoption Manager, Nichole Carter. Nichole shared how Big-D has been using Nyfty’s Health Survey Bot Platform to easily send daily wellness and jobsite cleanliness checks via text message using AI bots housed within the platform.

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown a demanding learning curve into the construction industry t

his year, which was considered an essential industry at the onset of the pandemic. To keep workers healthy and jobsites open, mitigating the risk of COVID-19 is a critical responsibility and a major challenge for all of us at Big-D. On average, our teams are coordinating with a large amount of workers at each individual jobsite. As an early adopter of company-wide safety measures, we knew that to limit the virus’s spread, we had to quickly implement daily wellness checks across all of our trade partners and employees, without increasing health risks through additional face-to-face interactions.

The Nyfty Health Survey Bot texts Big-D’s trade partners a link to a small, simple survey to ensure our crews are healthy, informed, and able to complete their work safely during the pandemic. This technology has helped us see over a 600% increase in daily wellness and jobsite cleanliness checks.

The Lodge at Blue Sky was recently recognition as an ENR 2020 Project of the Year!

Our Big-D Signature group is excited to announce our recent recognition as an ENR 2020 Project of the Year award winner for our work on The Lodge at Blue Sky! This award honors outstanding construction projects across the U.S. for excellence in safety, innovation, and teamwork. We appreciate the hard work and dedication put forth by our trade partners, employees, and associates, as well as the trust instilled in us by the owner and architect to successfully complete this magnificent project.

In early 2019, Forbes Magazine and Bloomberg previewed the resort as one of the most anticipated resorts for luxury seekers. Located in the heart of rural Wanship, Utah where guests can unplug and indulge in year-round activities like skiing, horseback riding, hiking, helicopter rides, or yoga, The Lodge also has a high-end restaurant and bar, top-notch spa, and other incredible amenities.

The level of quality construction put into The Lodge at Blue Sky far exceeds the status-quo for industry standards. The owner and architect both requested a fine detail in finishes, with many of the materials being imported. The ceiling and closet are the only two elements in the entire resort that are painted, everything else required careful installation of delicate finishes. In order to meet the completion deadline, Big-D Signature had 200 finishers on-site daily. Altogether, more than 529,000 man-hours were logged at the job site.

Weber State University North End Zone was recently awarded the 2020 Sports & Entertainment Project of the Year!

Big-D Construction was recently awarded the 2020 Sports & Entertainment Project of the Year recognition for our work on the Weber State University North End Zone! We are proud to work with such outstanding trade partners, employees, clients, and community members—without you, this wouldn’t have been possible. This recognition is a nod to your hard work on such a safe, innovative, and teamwork.

The Weber State North End Zone was designed to be the focal point of both the players’ and fans’ experience at Stewart Stadium. The entrance welcomes fans as they enter through the plaza (known as Sark’s Boys Gateway) to get the full effect of the fan experience during Wildcat Home games.

Arguably, the most eye-catching part of the project for football players is the locker room. The WSU North End Zone project includes several custom aspects—especially in the locker room area. The lockers themselves feature a custom design usually reserved for NFL teams. The building also features specialty murals, unique lighting, and plenty of natural light filtering in through massive windows that offer unbeatable views of the field. The space provides a professional space for the WSU Wildcats to practice, challenge opponents, work out between practices, and push themselves to greater things. The WSU Track Team also utilizes the space for track meets and practice.
