How Construction Technology Is An Investment Not A Cost

The digital revolution is having a significant impact on how organizations work, engage with their customers, and most of all, generate revenue. Investing in construction technology is something worth considering as it’s being impacted by the growth of devices, emerging innovations, hyperconnectivity, and many more.

IoT and Big Data are just some of the most lucrative investment areas for digital transformation, and we’re going to give you a better idea of why construction technology is an investment, not a cost.

Technology Promotes Overall Efficiency in the Workplace

If you tried to look back ten years ago, you’d see that efficiencies in technology have dramatically improved over the span of a decade. Simply put, businesses were able to adapt quickly to these advancements and have incorporated the use of technological devices to improve productivity and efficiency.

It’s a significant change that affected the way we communicate and access information. Of course, the construction industry is no exception to this.

Communication has been the most significant change in the past few years, mainly if we’ll talk about modern personal data assistants. Finally, we have reached the point where project managers don’t have to draw up project outlines anymore manually.

Mobile technology, as well as the use of project management software, has allowed project managers to create blueprints, illustrations, tasks, and other valuable information more efficiently.

Furthermore, these digital records have also made it much easier to continually communicate with workers wherever they are, simulate 3D models, and pay close attention to the overall cost of the project. Technology ensures that the operation would run smoothly.

Better Safety

Technology made it possible to mount sensors all throughout the construction site to monitor and detect unusual activities. These sensors are embedded in orange cones, traffic barricades, machinery, and the like.

Vehicle wrap versus paint

Let’s face it, it was hard enough to find the car you wanted. It’s a tough job, I know. Sometimes we don’t get the color we wished for, or just want to change up a bit. Paint can be very expensive and is permanent. That’s where vinyl wrap comes in.​

Cost

First of all, let’s get this out of the way. Generally, you get what you pay for, is true. But sometimes this is completely not true. If the paint on your car is good and all original, you can hurt the value of your vehicle by repainting it. And it not cheap. A quick Google search finds this:
“For high-quality paint job drivers reported spending between $2,400 and $7,500, with an average price of about $5,000.”
In comparison partial wraps start around $1,500, with most full vehicle wraps falling between, $2,500 and $3,500. It does not hurt the value of your vehicle, it protects it.

Time

Paint jobs can take weeks to complete, that is once they can get you in. Vinyl car wraps generally take 2-5 days and we can work with your schedule. This is also important if you ever need to replace a section. We see accidents on a regular basis here in Vancouver, we hope you never get in one, but with paint if you have a door that needs fixed you have to blend in to all the surrounding panels. With vehicle wraps you only need to replace the section that has been damaged.

Protection

Roads are not forgiving to a cars paint finish. Over time your paint will get scratches, dents, dings, fading, acid rain, and more. For over $1000 at a dealership you can get a paint protection clear bra film (or less from us) but it will only protect the front …

3 Technologies Driving the Future of Smart City Growth

As the population continues to grow, it’s essential for city officials to think of ways on how to keep up with this change. A decade from now, it’s expected that more than 5 billion people would be living in an urban setting.

However, before we get to that kind of population density, it’s essential to optimize the cities first. That means making them smarter and better– this is where technology would play a significant role.

Cities all over the world work with developers and contractors to make city living better. It doesn’t matter if it’s improving the timing of traffic lights or developing an app which becomes very useful as smartphone penetration keeps on growing.

Apps, as well as well-designed technology, wouldn’t only allow the government to budget funds more efficiently, but it will also make cities smarter for the city dwellers. To make that possible, here are the top 3 technologies driving the future of intelligent city growth.

1. IoT Technology

The Internet of Things encourages greener, safer, and more efficient cities. Having the ability to connect devices, vehicles, and traffic devices, such as traffic cones, everywhere in a town, could reduce the risks of accidents, as well as energy and water wastage at the same time.

In smart cities, it’s essential that stakeholders would work together to offer the best technology solutions there is. This includes managed service providers, network operators, system integrator, and technology providers. They all have a role in providing smart city solutions.

The key is, to be able to build these solutions on an open, standard-based communication platform that would allow the experts to modify and reuse whenever necessary. With its proven reliability, matched with simple deployment and extensive reach, cellular is considered to be an ideal form of technology that can …

8_Construction_Traffic_Trends_To_Watch_In_2018

As the population continues to rise, so as the number of vehicles. This increases traffic-density and road accidents. For that reason, experts suggest the implementation of traffic management system, as well as other developments that are capable of securing the safety of those who are on the road.

Here are the top 8 construction traffic trends that you should keep an eye on this 2018.

1. The Development of Work Zone Traffic Control Software

In the construction industry, it has been observed that the use of a work zone traffic control software brought a positive impact not only on productivity but the safety of the workers as well. It’s capable of making the planning portion more comfortable and much more convenient.

A plan that can be customized and has a wide variety of options could also help the company determine if there’s something wrong happening on the site, and be able to resolve the problem as well.

2. Better Road Design

In 2018, we can expect that a 3-dimensional road alignment would be available, and this would allow those who are in charge to perform their tasks more efficiently.

This would reduce the amount of earth to be moved, and the alignment would be adjusted according to the calculations made by the computer system.

3. Upgrades in Equipment

Some traffic safety equipment, such as portable traffic signals, traffic cones, barricades, and the like would undergo technological developments. A few years ago, some traffic and construction equipment has put the lives of the workers at risk, as it’s not capable of providing the security needed by the workers– not anymore.

With the recent advancements in technology, everything would be done on point. To support that, even agencies are motivated to take the leap and start upgrading their system to achieve
