In the spirit of IT and technology, we’d like to share with you some of the best technologies and apps that can ultimately help your construction group achieve your goals in 2016 and beyond.
Whether you’re an IT person that manages IT for a construction company, or perhaps you’re the owner of a construction business, these apps are totally applicable to you in your role.
Here they are, in no particular order.
Surveying with ease.
Surveying is fundamental to construction projects.
Often times the survey phase takes longer than construction groups would prefer. Even with high-definition surveying equipment and techniques, this one part of a construction project still consumes valuable time. What if there were a way, using technology, to make this happen faster?
Specific technologies such as vehicle-mounted surveying systems, can perform surveys at great speed and efficiency. Check out this mapping and surveying solution, by clicking here.
Concrete Printing (3D).
Egyptians first experimented with lime and gypsum mortar long ago, as a binding source for stone.
And concrete has been the go-to material for some of the world’s greatest construction achievements. But now 3D printing technology is being integrated to produce complex building forms, as a part of the concrete process. Learn more about how this technology works, by clicking here.
Google Tango is a smartphone and tablet software loaded onto an Android smartphone-like device, that tracks and creates a 3D model of the environment around it.
This unique system captures and analyzes spatial data recorded by this device. It even works with Trimble units, as they announced their units would work with these Tango devices for conceptual application purposes, along with BIM data and other 3D models, which can be edited on the device. This piece of technology is perfect for architects and engineers on many different construction projects. Check out Google Tango here.
But before you go diving into the latest construction technology, like the ones we listed above, be sure you have an IT plan that can support them.
In this plan you’ll want to have:
- A documented plan to test these types of construction technology.
- A documented plan to identify how your construction group plans to use this technology.
- A documented IT plan that details the roll out and delivery of this construction technology to your end users.
- You’ll also need to identify the hardware requirements in order to use these pieces of construction technology.
