CPM uses cloud-based photogrammetry platform for measurement, control and monitoring of infrastructure construction work in Tel Aviv neighborhood
CPM Group is a privately-held company established in 1991. With extensive experience in project and mega-project management in the residential, commercial, and office sectors, the company has handled projects worth billions of shekels. To digitize and automatically measure, track, and monitor projects throughout their lifecycle, CPM utilizes DatuBIM – our cloud-native SaaS Photogrammetry is the science of obtaining accurate measurements and three-dimensional information from photographs. It … More and Drone mapping is the process of creating maps and 3D models of geographic areas using images and data captured by drones… More platform.
The infrastructure sector is often characterized by the use of traditional methods and limited technology. However, significant changes have occurred in recent years as more project management companies and contractors recognize the added value of incorporating technology into their daily workflows. This increasing adoption of technology has resulted in shorter timelines, cost savings, and improved quality throughout project lifecycles.
One example of such a project management company is CPM Group, which currently utilizes DatuBIM in multiple projects under its management. Together with the Tel Aviv Municipality, CPM serves as the project management company for the Sde Dov (Eshkol) neighborhood, developed as part of an agreement between the Tel Aviv Municipality and the Israel Land Authority.

The Eshkol neighborhood occupies a prime location in Tel Aviv and serves as the initial cornerstone of a large and complex mega-project known as the Sde Dov quarter. Prior to the construction of this new neighborhood, the Sde Dov airport was situated on this land.
Through an agreement involving ILA, the Ministry of Defense, and the Tel Aviv Municipality, the Sde Dov airport was vacated, and plans were made to build a new neighborhood in its place. The Sde Dov quarter will ultimately consist of 16,000 units, with 4,176 being residential and the rest allocated for commercial and other purposes.

According to David Haymes, an engineer and project manager at CPM, “DatuBIM allows me to track my work conveniently and quickly from design to completion. I believe that it’s only a matter of time before this type of technology will be used for all infrastructure and construction projects in Israel, and all project owners, managers and supervisors will use digital software to monitor progress and get access to real site data.”
He further explained that the visual comparison tool (diff tool) in DatuBIM is the most frequently used feature, enabling him to compare models from different dates on the same screen and effectively track and monitor progress.
Additional improvements to project management
