PCL is being recognized for its digital transformation efforts that are reinventing how technology is used in the construction industry. PCL refocused where technology can add value by eliminating an entire on-premise data centre and migrating it to the cloud. This enabled the team to focus on delivering mobile applications and solutions, integrated solutions that save valuable time, and data-driven analytics that allow smart decisions to be made about a construction project’s schedule, quality, safety, and financial performance.
“To better support construction excellence, we needed to adopt a digital-first mindset, focused on field solutions,” said Mark Bryant, chief information officer, PCL Construction. “We wanted to enhance our time to market, reduce cost, enhance safety, and drive Lean construction practices and greater productivity by refocusing where technology can make a significant impact for our employees, at the workface of our jobsites.”
Award winners will be announced at the 2018 V2R Awards ceremony on May 10 in Toronto.
