Why construction site monitoring makes sense 

With the New Zealand building industry contributing billions of dollars to our economy, and forecast to reach $48.3 billion by 2024 construction companies need to keep innovating to ensure they are complying with regulations, while continuing to gain efficiencies and meet sustainability goals. Join us on our next Spark Spotlight webinar where Quintin Rolston, Construction Manager at Isaac Construction Ltd will discuss the ways in which they are embracing technology to monitor their worksites and the importance of clarity and simplification of data (not death-by-data). With the ability to monitor noise, dust, vibration and more the Isaac Construction team have real time data to make impartial decisions with affected stakeholders.
