Bennett Construction, main contractor on the extension to the landmark Primark store in Belfast city centre, use the new innovative App to order and track concrete deliveries
Lagan Concrete, part of Lagan Products, supplies ready mixed concrete and blocks to the construction industry across greater Belfast, Co. Antrim and Co. Down.
The Company has recently implemented a revolutionary mobile/cloud-based app for the Construction Industry. MOBILEjobsite, by Command Alkon, is set to transform the way construction companies place and track orders using real time information.
Bennett Construction, main contractor on the extension to the landmark Primark store in Belfast city centre, have taken full advantage of the technology and reaped the rewards.
Philip Daly, Senior Engineer for Bennett Construction downloaded the Mobile Jobsite App and has been enjoying the functionality for some time now. Almost all the concrete for this project has been ordered online, a first for Lagan Concrete and the greater construction industry.
Paul Adamson, Operations Manager at Lagan Products spoke to Philip about his experience with MOBILEjobsite.
Paul Adamson commented:
“Philip was one of our early adopters of this fantastic technology and it’s great to see the benefit it brings to him and this project.
One of the many advantages Philip gets from using the App during pours is access to valuable information when calling off clean up loads to finish. Historically there’s always been a challenge in determining exactly how much was poured, how much is on the way and what is being loaded. MOBILEjobsite makes this easy for him while helping greatly reduce the likelihood of over ordering concrete and the associated problems of what to do with it.
Tower cranes are very expensive, and their effective use is critical in construction projects. Philip is able to use MOBILEjobsite to help maximise crane usage as he has total transparency of all concrete truck movements to his site. There is no waiting for “on its way” or “it’s just around the corner” loads.”
