Environmental monitoring is a relatively new concept for US-based construction businesses, but it quickly gaining the attention of the industry. In a construction environment, environmental monitoring gives construction superintendents on a project the data necessary to keep staff safe and projects on track.
Aside from ensuring a project complies with environmental plans, monitoring and management of environmental conditions can reveal problems long before they impact a construction project. In addition, the ability to monitor environmental conditions on a construction project demonstrates the commitment to environmental impact on the surrounding environment which is becoming important to many clients.
The construction industry has always operated under the constant pressure to improve productivity, reduce costs and waste, and essentially do more with much less. One way to meet these demands in a construction environment is by harnessing the power of environmental monitoring. As the construction manager, you can use gathered data to accurately predict when to act, and what action to take to lessen the effects of environmental conditions on your job site. Simply put, you can know when to funnel resources into a particular area or hold them back to avoid wasting resources when the environmental conditions could disrupt or delay progress. That alone would improve productivity for many projects.
How To Monitor A Job Site
We have discussed several ways that SiteKick elevates job site monitoring to a whole new level for savvy construction administrators. We have discussed safety and security. Environmental monitoring plays an important role in the safety and security of your personnel. Unlike spot checks to measure environmental conditions on a jobsite, SiteKick’s solution of using cameras with sensors continuously monitor a variety of conditions on a job site to ensure that measured data points remain within acceptable levels and alert construction site managers when conditions change drastically.
This solution eliminates the need for hand-held surveys or hiring costly consultants to measure and record changing conditions. This is especially important when your construction project is large or spread across many locations. Cameras with sensors become your eyes, ears, and nose on remote locations increasing the safety and security of your most valuable resource by alerting users to potentially unsafe working conditions before the crew gets on site, eliminating wasted travel.
