Garic, the specialist welfare and site set up products provider is launching a construction industry first. i-SITE is a new remote equipment monitoring system that reduces the cost and environmental impact of site servicing.
Designed specifically for monitoring fluids such as fuel, waste and water, i-SITE has been tested by a range of companies nationwide over the past six months.
Sensors fitted to site equipment eliminate the need for contractors to try to estimate when a generator will run out of fuel, when fresh water supplies will be needed or the soil tank needs emptying.
Commenting on the launch of i-SITE Garic director Neil Richardson said: “There is a big shift currently taking place with regard to how servicing is procured and with this smart technology Garic will be leading the way.
“i-SITE is the first of its kind in the UK construction sector and this type of fully-inclusive monitoring software will completely transform the way equipment such as welfare units, fuel bowsers, lighting towers and drying rooms are serviced. Waste removal and fuel or water replenishment will be automatically scheduled for just when they’re needed and this in itself will have a huge impact in helping clients to meet their sustainability targets.”
The system, which can be managed from any location via a mobile device app or secure web portal, could place the whole of the construction sector’s site welfare equipment under close scrutiny as the system
continually monitors efficiencies. It will be fitted as standard to all new relevant Garic products and as part of its ongoing refurbishment programme to existing products.
i-LEVEL’s managing director Søren Bradbury explains: “The primary aim of i-SITE is to ensure that the cost of servicing is directly in-line with customers’ needs. We have been using a similar system for agricultural fluids and could see how effective it would be to other sectors. Garic was looking for something similar and so everything just clicked into place. This is going to make such a difference to the way contractors manage their sites and we are very excited to be the first to bring it to the UK construction market with Garic.”
