UK-based construction company Galliford Try has implemented a new digital platform, Qflow, across its infrastructure projects as part of its carbon reduction efforts. 

The platform uses AI to automate data capture and processing, extracting information from both digital and paper delivery and waste tickets. 

This ensures comprehensive and precise data collection in deliveries and waste transfers for the business.  

Gathering data and goods received notes (GRNs) from a varied supply chain is said to be a difficult aspect of reporting embodied carbon in the construction sector. 

The platform allows suppliers to capture GRNs and waste transfer notes (WTNs) by uploading a photo from their mobile devices at the point of delivery. 

The system also ensures that deliveries comply with project-specific requirements, aiding in quality and waste compliance.

Galliford has already employed Qflow in the £85m ($106.71m) Melton Mowbray Distributor Road project, working with more than ten direct suppliers and their respective supply chains. 

In the initial stages of Qflow’s deployment, the platform is noted to be collecting more than 750 GRNs and WTNs monthly.  

Galliford Infrastructure business managing director David Lowery said: “As part of our net-zero commitments, we are dedicated to effective carbon reporting and finding ways in which we can develop product-specific carbon data capture systems and reporting methodologies.  

“We are exploring a number of solutions with experts and our supply chain, and we are immensely proud to be the first contractor to deploy Qflow on a highways project for the purpose of carbon data capture.”

Last month, Galliford’s Building Southern division initiated construction on the new Endeavour Co-operative Academy in Brentwood, Essex, UK.
