This isn’t your dad’s construction site anymore.
Oh, you might see the same kinds of equipment–dump trucks and dozers, excavators and graders, but it’s what you don’t see that’s changed so much. The drones that created the site topo, the 3D models that dictated the takeoffs, the GPS that tells the operators exactly where to dig. Your dad never had any of those.
Don’t walk. Now you can fly!
Your nephew might have one–a remote controlled hovercraft that flies just over your head, looking for all the world like a UFO, something between a toy and cutting edge technology. Drones are fun, but they’re also serious business.
Your IT: Not the place for DIY
There is more than one way to accomplish a task, but you become more proficient in the task the more times you have completed it. Your IT network is no different. A salesperson can make it sound easier to manage than it in fact is, but by trying to do it yourself, you sacrifice time, efficiency, and the expertise needed to do it right. DIY can be fun, but when it comes to technology, it’s comforting to know that the job is done right.
Use Your Head Before Your Shovel
Preparing building sites isn’t just about moving dirt. Not anymore.
Preparing building sites isn’t just about moving dirt. Not anymore. Nobody has time to move dirt around twice. Nobody has room in their budgets to run into unexpected underground utilities or cables. You need good information about where to dig before a shovel or bucket ever hits the ground. You need the best information the industry can offer if you’re going to be competitive and efficient. That’s why ETG uses Trimble Business Center, Agtek 4D/Gradeworks 4D, and Rockpile Solutions so that you’re always fast and accurate.
