Georgia Tech Students Keep Watchful Eye on 14th Street Bridge Project

Dr. Jochen Teizer, assistant professor in Georgia Tech’s School of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), and his students are monitoring construction of the 14th Street Bridge in Midtown, Atlanta. The team has placed cameras on the Marriott Hotel and the resulting images are being posted to a Web page. This allows Teizer’s students to analyze the construction progress and look for more efficient techniques to be used in future construction projects.

Dr. Teizer, an expert in construction engineering and management, heads the Real-time Automated Project Information and Decision Systems Laboratory in CEE. The project is being supported by the construction monitoring company OxBlue.
