GAO RFID Commercial and Institutional School Construction RFID Solutions

Time Saving and Accurate RFID Solutions

Our RFID solutions will allow your construction facility to quickly and accurately track all assets and inventory inside your facility. It can also control parking or access to your store and warehouse areas. It is as simple as an employee walking or driving through your store, holding a handled computer that is also equipped with an RFID reader.  As the employee walks or drives through your store, the device will automatically track all tagged assets and inventory in your store, with no manual scanning required.

What It Tracks

Our RFID system can track all construction equipment assets including:

  • Wireless information systems and GPS
  • Impact tools, saws and drills
  • Moving supplies, such as trolleys and utility carts
  • Lighting equipment, radios and generators
  • Rigging equipment and ladders
  • Safety gear, such as hard hats, gloves, earplugs, harnesses, first aid kits and more
  • All other assets your construction equipment facility may utilize

An RFID tag needs to be attached to each asset in the facility, then each tag is read by the handheld PC equipped with an RFID reader that is held by the employee as they go through the facility.

 The GAO RFID Commercial and Institutional School Construction Store Asset Management Solution can be scaled to fit the needs of all construction equipment stores of various sizes, or even a warehouse.

The Commercial and Institutional School Construction Industry

Commercial and institutional buildings are the most common types of construction seen and used by the public. The terms “commercial” and “institutional” refer to organizations or establishments that are formed for religious, social, educational, or other similar purposes. This form of construction serves to create buildings for public use, such as churches, banks or schools. The construction of schools may be considered as one of the most important types of public institutions since they are of particular interest to governments, communities, and corporations, as education has become a crucial element for success. Schools provide early childhood, primary, secondary, and higher education opportunities, which in turn provide the necessary skills required to join the workforce.

Due to the importance of education, several hundred thousand public and private school buildings have been constructed all across North America, with millions of students in attendance every year. In the US, large cities tend to have the highest amount of schools; these cities include Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, and New York City, NY, among several others. The school construction market continues to climb as cities and suburban areas continue to grow in geographical and population size and must make education more accessible to the public.

School construction varies for each building, as it must meet the community’s needs for which it is created. For example, some residential areas are spread out and have smaller population sizes, while some areas are more densely populated and have lower amounts of space available for construction. This also applies to the types of materials needed, based on certain factors like the environment, city standards, or budget restrictions.

Construction typically requires builders to form lists of materials, which vary in quality, price and quantity. Commercial and institutional construction requires large order capabilities, which now involve GPS delivery and high-tech operating systems to process large orders and move materials. To begin the process of building commercial or institutional schools, school boards, school districts, and city planners must prepare contracts that discuss matters such as site security, environmental and noise control, workers’ hours, necessary materials, and deliveries. Once the materials have been decided on, the party responsible for overseeing the construction process may contact special construction supply facilities, that typically make on-site deliveries. Construction also involves a significant amount of both natural and synthetic materials, such as wood, steel, clay, bricks, rocks, plastics, glass, and cement, which may or may not be used depending on their cost, quality, or effectiveness in the type of building being made. Construction supply facilities keep their materials in large enclosed areas like warehouses, in which workers must keep track of inventory and use large, strong moving equipment for the large amounts of heavy, raw materials being ordered. The types of equipment involved in this process often include utility carts, forklifts, and delivery trucks, which are used to lift and move these heavy materials.

To work in this field, employees typically are not required to have any formal education and instead, go through on-the-job training. However, it may be beneficial to attend a trade school or begin an apprenticeship first. Construction work is very physically taxing, dangerous, and difficult. Given the complex nature of commercial and institutional construction, workers often need special certifications or licenses to perform certain tasks, such as rigging, scaffolding, or welding.

Commercial and institutional construction is very complex and includes a very broad range of assets that must be tracked during the ordering process. Each asset in this industry is crucial to the construction of these buildings, providing them with a good foundation, and meeting the standards for the specific type of building and environmental regulations. There are several different facilities or plots of land that house different kinds of raw materials, such as glass, metals, chemicals, woods, etc., often depending on the storage conditions these materials may require.
