Broadband network deployment is ripe for innovation

The demand far outpaces the speed and scale at which telecommunications infrastructure can be built and the entire industry is tasked with building a connected future, fast.

Increasing pressure to accelerate infrastructure

To achieve these aggressive build schedules, traditional construction methods – spreadsheets, paper construction prints, emails, and other manual methods – will simply not achieve the expected productivities, financial returns, or delivery timeline.

Introducing Digital Network Construction

Utilizing today’s GIS and mobile technology and the power of automation, Render’s unique approach solves the complexities associated with large-scale network deployment by replacing manual handoffs and paper-based construction approaches with digital workflows and data capture, automation, and geospatial intelligence.
Introducing Render

Deployment success is built on four key principles

PRINCIPLE 1

Turn the design into work, and simply build the design

Blueprint
Geospatial, digital scope of work: Sequenced & task-level

Our Digital Construction Blueprint transforms design files into task-level deliverable work via a proprietary digital blueprinting process. The output is thousands of digital labor and material scopes, including BOQ/BOM, sequenced to optimal delivery on a map.

Task Sequencing
Cloud-based GIS software with a mobile, connected workforce

Field teams are delivered tasks that are ready to commence based on an optimal build sequence. Teams know exactly what they need to do and capture accurate, consistent data as soon as the work is completed in order to optimize quality and minimize costly rework.

PRINCIPLE 2

Workflow digitization, automation, and optimization

Group 541
Daily dependency-driven resource optimization

Greater resource utilization by releasing and managing work based on sequenced, task-level work scope at the individual and team level. Stakeholders can dynamically reschedule work in real-time to the most efficient contractors.

Group 725
Replace manual, paper-based processes

Eliminate physical construction prints and the associated manual handoffs with an entirely paperless network delivery accelerated by rich, real-time project data and a new level of visibility on geospatial maps.

Group 393
As-built data mapped to downstream system requirements

Construction, change, quality, digital redline, and photo data are collected at the task level with mandatory data capture requirements. Timely receipt of complete, accurate As-built data for downstream utilization results in a significantly reduced time-to-market.

PRINCIPLE 3

Real-time geospatial visibility for all stakeholders

Group 541
Make better decisions with unified data

All project stakeholders require a shared platform at a program or portfolio level to predict, plan, optimize, and report progress. Identify where assets are, task completeness, and where to allocate more resources – in a simple, unified view.

Group 725
Unequalled productivity from the field to the office

With access to real-time data in the field, management in the office know exactly what work has been done in real-time, enabling them to dynamically monitor throughput and proactively keep teams moving.

Group 393
Maximize investment and integration of existing project systems

Construction management integration with existing GIS, master scheduling, work order, PNI, and finance systems is critical to removing the need for error-prone end-user spreadsheets and delivering actionable insights.

PRINCIPLE 4

One integrated geospatial workflow: Construction, QA, change management and digital redlining

Group 541

Render progressively identifies and rectifies quality issues, variations, and redlining in parallel with construction, avoiding costs and delays at project completion. Deliver a timely and accurate record of the network for close-out, whilst seamlessly integrating with downstream systems and enabling streamlined customer connection experiences.

‘With Render, productivity is off the charts, data integrity is high, and construction costs are down, all without ever touching a piece of paper. Now I can’t imagine trying to implement a large-scale utilities construction project without it.’

Craighead Electric Cooperative Corporation (CECC) were required to deploy a 3,000-mile fiber network as efficiently as possible, at minimum cost while maintaining the integrity of their existing network Render have enabled the project to:

55%

ahead of deployment schedule yet 12% under budget

84%

outside plant is being deployed 84% faster than planned

75%

saving in forecasted resourcing
