LEMMINKÄINEN INFRAHACK COMPETITION WINNING SOLUTIONS ARE AGILE AND USER-FRIENDLY
Three teams, Poimapper, PointScene and Siili, were chosen to take part in the pilot phase of the Lemminkäinen InfraHack innovation competition. The winning solutions have a strong link to Lemminkäinen’s strategy and targets. They also have the best potential for further development and eventually implementation in the businesses. The solutions will assist the planning and organisation of work, which will benefit our customers with more efficient contract and project management.
The Poimapper team developed a solution for Lemminkäinen for speeding up the organisation of work and reporting in the different business segments. The innovation of the Siili team uses augmented reality in the planning of paving work. The solution of the PointScene team will ease project follow-up by using drones as tools.
The Lemminkäinen InfraHack competition was held from 19–21 May 2017 in Helsinki, Finland. The goal was to find new ideas and agile solutions for improving information flow and operational efficiency in the Paving and Infra projects segments. Eight teams took part in the competition.
