Internet of Things set to transform the construction industry

The Internet of Things (IoT) is proving hugely beneficial to the construction industry, allowing different assets and people to be monitored and accounted for across a traditionally fragmented industry. As a result, companies that invest in IoT now promise to make long-term gains in the industry. According to GlobalData forecasts, spending on IoT in construction will reach $9.6bn by 2025. For an industry that has large sites to manage, strict project timelines, hazardous working conditions, and tight profit margins, IoT can create a manageable view of construction sites for project managers, streamline operations, and protect workers. In addition, it allows real-time data streams of assets, automates time-consuming tasks, and ensures employee safety and productivity. IoT integration with equipment manufacturing also has rich advantages for asset monitoring sensors. This, combined with artificial intelligence (AI) can help forecast materials and workers needed during the procurement stage and assist in forecast financing.

The new sports complex is being developed on a derelict brownfield site to the west of Park Burn in Kirkintilloch’s Southbank area.

The project is being led by East Dunbartonshire Council with other partners, including Roberston Construction.

Set to provide sporting facilities for the local community, the complex will include a full-size, artificial 3G sports pitch with floodlighting, along with a main stand and VIP stand spectator seating.

It will also include a pavilion building that will feature changing facilities, café space and toilets.

Additionally, the complex will include car parking with electric car charging points, along with covered bike stands.

Robertson Construction Central West regional managing director Andy McLinden said: “East Dunbartonshire Council is showing great commitment to the local community through the provision of these new facilities.

“As the contractor of choice, we will become a significant part of the community in the coming months as we transform this former brownfield site into a first-class sports complex.”

The company stated that the sports complex is being developed within the Major Works Scotland & Construction Framework provided by procurement specialist SCAPE Scotland.

The project is being funded by East Dunbartonshire Council with additional support coming from the Vacant and Derelict Land Investment Programme of the Scottish Government.

Once the complex nears completion, which is expected in September, the Council will undertake a marketing exercise.

Preparatory works at the project site are underway to remove debris and obstructions and clear the site for creating foundations for the facility.
