Construction Innovation Duct Bar Coding System

The VAE Construction team have implemented an innovative Duct Bar Coding system to monitor the HVAC ductwork progress for our construction projects. The bar code tracks duct from manufacture, despatch, delivery, installation and even through to commissioning.

At each stage the duct is scanned, and the system is updated highlighting the duct in the colour of the phase it is currently in. The below image shows a sample of the duct and the different stages of the run. The table on the top left shows 47.1% of the duct is installed, 7.9% of the duct is on site awaiting installation, and 38.8% of duct is in production etc.

Providing the system is used correctly and scanned at each phase along the trail it is an excellent tool for tracking site progress and may also be used to quantify progress claims saving valuable time and resources.
