There are many opportunities in the construction industry, but the availability of sufficient skilled labour can be a barrier to taking advantage of them. Innovation is crucial for the construction industry, both to realise future projects and to respond more efficiently to the increasing demand for services. BIRDS provides the opportunity to use Power BI to get the right information needed to effectively manage the dynamic construction industry. This allows construction companies to better prepare for the challenges and opportunities presented by the sector.
BIRDS for Power BI & Dynamics
Answering crucial questions in the construction industry, such as understanding forecasts, meeting sustainability standards, and making the best use of equipment, requires the use of data. Power BI plays a vital role in this by helping you extract valuable insights from this data. It allows you to combine historical data with future forecasts to gain new perspectives. With Power BI, you can create reports, perform analysis and generate forecasts, giving you answers to how things are currently going and what is likely to happen in the future. This is invaluable for making informed decisions and optimising construction projects.
Power BI data platform BIRDS
Optimising insights in Power BI frequently requires aggregating multiple sources, but in order to use this data effectively, it must be properly organised and structured so that it can be used meaningfully. BIRDS is an intelligent data platform that enables you to access and integrate data sources within your Power BI environment.

The benefits of Power BI for construction companies
Why do construction companies benefit from using Power BI? Here are some examples of how Power BI can help solve construction industry challenges:
- Chain collaboration: Power BI allows you to keep an overview of the various parties involved in construction projects, which is essential for effective collaboration.
- CO2 budget: Monitoring CO2 emissions in projects is crucial to stay within budgets and meet environmental targets.
- Circularity and sustainability: Power BI can help manage used building materials and meet requirements for circular and sustainable construction practices.
- BIM (Building Information Management): Power BI provides a platform to centralise and analyse BIM data, which can lead to smarter collaboration, procurement and planning.
- Wkb (Building Quality Assurance Act): Power BI can help capture and leverage mandatory data, and identify new opportunities.
- Innovative building: Collecting and analysing data from building innovations such as cobotics, robotics and augmented reality can help to work more efficiently and discover new opportunities.
- Innovating traditionally: Power BI can improve traditional ways of working by enabling better forecasting, budget comparisons and cash flow management. In short, Power BI provides construction companies with the tools and insights they need to meet the challenges.
