The March edition of Construction Global is live!
Spring is finally here, and we can proudly state that the March edition of Construction Global is live! In this month’s edition, we feature a number of exciting companies which are making a significant impact on the construction industry in exciting new projects, as well as exploring how certain projects have made a huge impact on the way in which projects are delivered.
Take a look at our article which explores the history regarding the Three Gorge Dam and its influence in developing hydro projects around the world, but also how technology is proving advantageous throughout the industry. We spoke with Stephen Westley, Director of Global Mobile Communications, who has partnered with DEWALT to create a rugged mobile device, targeted specifically for workers within the construction sector. We also take a look at the top 10 longest bridges in the world, which have helped connect various cities, strengthening infrastructures and economic growth.
We have also spoke with a number of high profile companies, such as Vantage Data Centers, ACCIONA, Rosendin Electric and many more - don’t miss out!
We sincerely hope you enjoy the issue, and as always, please tweet your feedback to @ConstructionGL
uPVC pipes, safety glasses and Spetz app launched
This week has seen a range of new product and service launches for the construction trade.
Vinyl Pipes has launched uPVC Column Pipes, which extend the life of pipes. Column Pipes with a power lock (patent pending) will not only to raise the safety standards but improve the efficiency of Borewell installations. This Lock system, a by-product of the in-house R&D team, is designed to bear load making the pipes stress-free, torque resistant and perfect for handling high pressure water.
Conscious that using the correct glasses could prevent 90% of jobsite injuries, Milwaukee's expanded range (pictured) features anti-scratch and fog free styles, new lens colours and magnification features, complementing its 'cut resistant' gloves.
Arriving on the UK app scene, Spetz is billed as a ‘one-stop shop’ for anyone "panicked by household flooding or electricity failure," as it unites tradespeople with consumers.
Spetz founder and CEO Yossi Nevo said urgent needs come in all forms and it’s unlikely that any household has tried and trusted tradespeople to match every possibility.
"The Spetz app rapidly connects them with a suitable ‘rescue service’ in as little as 30 seconds and that rapid reassurance is completely free - it’s the tradespeople who pay for these job leads. Those start at around £6 a time, but the tradesperson can then go on to make thousands from our automated system funnelling the best and most appropriate work their way.”
Spetz is now three years old operating in Israel, Australia and is now beginning a full UK rollout, after a ‘soft’ launch.
