A strong education sector is a building block of every society and is vital to the growth of developing nations. Without safe school buildings, sustainable education plans cannot be implemented. While schools are often constructed in many developing countries, they are not always built with the highest standards needed to keep students and teachers safe. Millions of students learn in schools that are insufficient to withstand earthquakes and other natural disasters. Teachers and students must feel safe in order to teach, learn, and grow. Many organizations around the world focus on constructing and renovating school buildings in order to create safer school environments, reduce the effects of disasters on school infrastructure, and minimize negative educational outcomes resulting from a disaster. While many organizations aim to construct safer schools, many of these projects lack rigorous monitoring during the construction phase and produce substandard buildings.
FieldSight has been used in school construction projects to monitor different construction stages in real-time to track the quality and progress of sites and visualize projects on a map. Using FieldSight, the construction manager can ensure quality, resulting in a safer school that better serves students.
