PCL won the award for transforming how
technology is used in the construction industry. By eliminating an entire
on-site data center and migrating it to the cloud, the team focused on
delivering mobile solutions that allow data-driven decisions to be made about a
construction project’s schedule, quality, safety, and financial performance.
“As we continue to push the limits of
technology in our industry, our sight is set on adopting a digital-first
mindset focused on field solutions,” said Mark Bryant, chief information
officer, PCL Construction. “We are transforming our business by enhancing our
time to market, reducing costs, improving safety, and driving Lean construction
practices for greater productivity.”
Driving operational excellence is critical not
only for PCL, but for our customers. Field technology has enabled better
collaboration between project teams and clients by providing data-driven
insights into how a project is progressing.
“Getting information to the on-site teams who
are delivering the work is imperative,” said Chris Gower, COO, Buildings, PCL
Construction. “Having mobile technology in the hands of our superintendents,
project managers, field engineers, and field coordinators allows them to have instant
access to information to properly construct the project, which avoids delays
and ultimately delivers better value to our customers.”
