PCL and Giatec Scientific partner to enhance smart construction
Through this partnership, PCL and Giatec will enhance concrete testing technologies, and IoT connected construction sites, further advancing PCL's industry leading Jobsite Insights smart construction risk management platform. PCL's cloud-based platform provides a single-pane view into all aspects of work at a jobsite, and continues to add value added features to enable PCL and its JSI licensees to be better builders.
"The integration of Giatec's technology adds yet another field driven need around concrete testing, real time data collection, and data driven decision making, fully enabling smart construction and making it a reality for the industry," said Mark Bryant, CIO PCL Construction. "Both Giatec's culture and vision for the future of smart construction aligns with PCL's," continued Bryant. "The technology ecosystem of today needs to be enabled through smart partnerships, smart platforms, and smart technologies that can drive immediate value and efficiency at the workface of construction."
"This partnership will make it easier than before for PCL projects to leverage the SmartRock wireless sensor technology in the monitoring of concrete curing and hardening helping project managers optimize schedules more efficiently," said Aali Alizadeh, CTO Giatec. "We are excited to partner with PCL a construction leader in North America and bring a full suite of smart technologies and AI-based solutions to the industry."

A bottleneck of haulers waiting to be loaded is inefficient. Idle machines burn unnecessary fuel, increase maintenance costs and decrease resale values when you're ready to trade them in.
When you pair the new Volvo EC950F crawler excavator and A60H articulated hauler, you can load trucks faster. The EC950F can utilize a 10-yard bucket to fill a 60-ton capacity A60H in only four passes — reducing passes lowers fuel consumption and drastically speeds up cycle times to keep your haulers moving. See how the massive EC950F and A60H improve cycle times and more to boost your profitability.
