Using a Real-Time Location System to Improve Construction Safety and Productivity
Collapse Expand


Construction is still one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, with job sites being complex networks of people, equipment, and activity that are dangerous and ever changing. With continued pressured to drive more value to clients, how do project teams use technology to improve productivity while maintaining safe working conditions? Skanska sought to answer this question and has piloted the use of an Internet of Things (IoT)-based technology called real-time location systems (RTLS) to dynamically track people and assets in order to make our job sites smarter, safer, and more productive. This presentation will focus on how RTLS can enhance environmental awareness and real-time visibility of worker’s safety and productivity on active job sites, as well as into operations. Representatives of Skanska and Redpoint Positioning will explore RTLS in action on real projects, along with benefits, challenges, and lessons learned. They will also explore the role of CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools when deploying RTLS. This session features Revit, AutoCAD, and BIM 360 Field. AIA Approved
