Construction company PCL has joined forces with fellow Canadian firm Aoms Technologies, a supplier of IoT technologies for smart buildings and construction sites, to drive the construction industry towards a technologically advanced future.
This partnership aims to enhance Job Site Insights (JSI), PCL’s cloud-based construction platform that provides a single-pane view into all aspects of work at a jobsite. With additional sensor technology integrated into the JSI platform including concrete maturity and strength, gases, sound, vibration, air quality, and energy consumption, this should improve the smart construction space.
“This is yet another significant strength and feature enhancement milestone for our Job Site Insights smart construction platform, expanding the platform’s capability,” said PCL’s CIO Mark Bryant. “Extending and adding features to JSI is critically important in enabling the value we bring to the workface of construction.”
PCL says it is committed to increasing the functionality of its technologies to deliver this value to its clients, to enhance worksite safety, improve quality and deliver smart buildings that are equipped for the future.
“We are very excited to unlock the potential of this relationship,” said Hamid Alemohammad, CEO of Aoms Technologies. “The partnership with PCL will allow Aoms to fast track the deployment of smart construction. Our joint forces with PCL will help all stakeholders in construction projects to gain real-time visibility into the safety, efficiency and productivity of the construction sites like never before.”
