What is Sitelife?2023-01-30T12:40:25+01:00

Sitelife is a construction site management software for digital construction documentation. The software supports site managers, foremen and project managers with the digital planning and documentation of construction projects. Subcontractors can been invited to take part on projects and are able to upload their own dedicated data. The software uses AI-based learning, establishing key indicators from the data and highlighting areas of potential optimisation. Findings can also be fed into future projects. Sitelife construction site and construction management software is a solution developed jointly by CONTAKT and b.i.m.m.

Who is Sitelife for?2023-01-30T12:42:44+01:00

Sitelife has been developed for people who manage construction sites. Digital site planning and control, as well as construction documentation and data analysis, can be carried out by foremen, site managers or project managers, whether they are working for the general contractor or a subcontractor. However, the owner, planner, project supervisor, BIM manager or the local construction supervisor can also be involved in the use of Sitelife to ensure a continuous flow of information.

What is the added value of Sitelife?2023-01-30T12:54:17+01:00

Sitelife enables the planning, documentation and analysis of construction projects to be carried out seamlessly and continuously, including all the different subcontractors – from project planning, through to implementation and completion. The combination of information-led construction site planning and control with digital construction documentation enables comprehensive analysis and data-based decisions. Digital construction site planning and control supports the coordination of all parties involved in the construction process and leads to an improved construction workflow. Digital construction documentation facilitates the efficient recording of structured construction site information. All information is stored in one place and data does not have to be entered twice. With the help of search functions and export options, the information is easy to find and ready to hand – for example, for the analysis of hours or additional cost claims. Sitelife works most effectively when a building information model (BIM) is used on site.

I do not use BIM – can I still use Sitelife?2023-01-30T12:44:07+01:00

Yes, Sitelife can be used without a building information model (BIM), in which case, PDF plans can be used.
