RFID & Construction 

The Construction industry encompasses three broad sectors: residential, non-residential, and engineering. The latter sector includes the construction of water and sewer lines, oil and gas pipelines, power and communication lines, as well as streets and bridges.

Within every sector, the requirements of attaining cost optimization and supply chain efficiency while ensuring safety are the top priorities. Using GAO RFID’s suite of RFID solutions, managers will realize that these requirements are both achievable and sustainable.

Construction Industry Business Challenges: How RFID is the solution

If your organization builds residential homes, commercial buildings, natural gas pipelines, or are into heavy civil construction, you may face challenges that are typical in the Construction industry.

These challenges can be controlled and overcome by using RFID technology. Here are some examples:

Challenge 1: Managing Equipment

Every construction site requires a large inventory of equipment in order to complete the project successfully. Earthwork, concreting, and hoisting equipment, as well as IT assets are expensive and need to be tracked for efficient use and prevent loss. Moreover, the maintenance of all equipment needs to be conducted on schedule to ensure that they are ready for use when needed.

By using RFID, you can track heavy equipment and tool usage and identify its locations under extreme conditions in real-time. 

For example, GAO Tools & Equipment system with our long-range RFID readers (range 100+M), Long range RFID Tags, 2.5GHZ or 433 MHZ Antenna, and GAO asset tracking software is a great solution for tracking heavy equipment and tool usage in a construction environment. GAO Asset tracking system is helpful in locating equipment and tools in real-time.

Challenge 2: Managing Inventory

Since construction materials are a large portion of the total cost of construction projects, the management of materials at the inventory level is crucial for the success of any project. Tracking and locating materials in construction sites is a major concern; know exactly what you have on-site to avoid over-ordering and accurately forecast when you need more materials to avoid construction delay. If the inventory of material resources is clearly known, cost overruns can be reduced, resulting in completed projects that are highly profitable.

Tagging construction materials with RFID tags allows you to track the items shipped to work sites and know when they are consumed.

For example, GAO Asset tracking system with our medium RFID readers, medium range Tags, Antenna, and GAO asset tracking software is ideal for tracking construction material levels. GAO Asset tracking system allows automating inventory management by providing real-time inventory data.

Challenge 3: Managing Personnel & Time

In an environment where the job site has multiple personnel performing different tasks at different hours of the day, managing personnel tasks and monitoring the time used to complete these tasks provide a way to ensure productivity. In addition, when safety becomes a concern and muster calls are conducted, knowing who has reported to the assigned areas is crucial to maintain complete site safety.

By wearing RFID badges, personnel can be tracked and located across the job site to monitor job productivity and keep project sites safe. These badges also can be integrated with existing payroll systems to automate HR processes.

For example, GAO Construction site people tracking system with our long-range RFID readers, RFID badges, 2.5GHZ or 433 MHZ Antenna and GAO People tracking software are great for tracking and monitoring personnel at construction sites. GAO people tracking system allows managing personnel tasks and monitoring time for completing the task to ensure productivity. Our system also allows integration with existing payroll system to automate HR Processes.

Challenge 4: Controlling Access

Most industrial job sites have many zones and require the operation of different heavy machinery. Keeping access to these zones secure and limiting the operation of machinery to only certified personnel is a daily priority for site managers.

RFID badges programmed to grant access to certain zones and allow only certified personnel the ability to operate specialized machinery keeps both personnel and job sites safe.  

For example, GAO Construction Site Access control system with our RFID badges, UHF or HF reader, HF or UHF antenna and access control software are great for limiting access to certain zones and specialized equipment to certified personnel. GAO RFID Construction site access control system ensures safety and security at the construction site.
