What Are Site Positioning Systems?
When you are on a construction site, efficiency matters. Everything from timely completion, to worker safety, to just plain getting the job done right requires organization and communication at every level. This requires a high level of performance at every level, from the individual worker, to their foreman, and from each piece of equipment, to your job site’s management systems. Here at SITECH, we’ve been in the construction industry for years. We provide construction management software in Colorado, New Mexico, and the surrounding areas. Here, we’d like to go over one of the services we offer: Site Positioning Systems. These are an integral part construction management. Here’s a quick overview of what they are:
A positioning system is just a tool for measuring the location of an object spatially. This type of tool can cover a huge array of areas. It is used in interplanetary systems to communicate to spacecraft via radio wave. It’s also used in our Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BNS, and IRNSS, which use microwave signals to accurately detect location worldwide. Finally, there are site wide positioning systems, which can pinpoint location accurately down to the centimeter (and sometimes even to the millimeter), after which that data can be recorded and communicated through a software system.
Site Positioning Systems
Site positioning systems work to improve efficiency, productivity, and worker safety on construction job sites. Not only do they utilize the amazing functionality of GNSS and other location measurement technologies, but they integrate it seamlessly into construction management software to maximize a job site’s communication and organization. Anybody who knows the endless stream of tasks that go on in a construction job can appreciate this amazing tool. No matter what your role in the construction job, be it in the office, field, or truck, site positioning systems help plug you in with the rest of your crew to avoid costly and dangerous communication errors. Site positioning systems help with a wide array of construction applications, including:
- Earthworks — The last thing you want when literally moving the earth beneath your feet is to find out you’ve made a mistake halfway through. Get it done right the first time, on time, and safely by tightening up your job site’s communication capabilities with a fully functional site positioning system.
- Paving — Today’s paving regulations are getting tighter and tighter, which is a good thing as it helps ensure our safety, but also means more is expected on the job site. Luckily, with a site positioning system, you can meet and exceed those regulations, ensure quality, and avoid wasting expensive materials all with one amazing tool.
- Drilling/Piling — Drilling can be tricky, there is a fine line between ecological and worker safety and productivity that cannot be crossed. Luckily, you don’t have to sacrifice any of these things with the increased productivity, accuracy, and safety provided by site positioning systems. We also offer
