    • The infrastructure industry is one of the most critical pieces of the world’s economy.
    • It is estimated that $10 trillion is spent every year on infrastructure development globally.
    • McKinsey & Co. projects that figure will rise to $15 trillion by 2025.
    • Canada’s Long-Term Infrastructure Plan details how the government is investing approximately $200 billion in infrastructure over 12 years, starting in 2016.
    • As the Canadian construction industry eagerly begins to ramp up activities in the field, it is being directed to conduct work in more responsible, intelligent, safer, and cost-efficient ways:  The Canadian Construction Association “COVID-19 – Standardized Protocols for All Canadian Construction Sites, v4” outlines practical recommendations on how to work in this new reality.
    • At the site management level, developers and contractors are mindful of complying with CSA/W202-18-Erosion and Sediment Control: Inspections and Monitoring Standard.


Real-time remote data collection and alert systems play a critical role in the new protocols and guidelines; providing developers, contractors, and agencies the data resources to solve many construction challenges, while offering significant benefits such as remotely viewing capabilities of on-site performance and:

  • Mitigate compliance risk
  • Address resource constraints
  • Manage IT limitations
  • Project management challenges
  • Project health risks


These tools offer detailed visual documentation, all with clarity we would traditionally only be able to get by showing up in person.

For example, on-site data loggers and instruments combined with wireless communication technologies connect  and construction activities making them “intelligent” by allowing them to communicate with one another, so that sites, systems, and assets can all be centralized to one reporting platform.



In an instant, from anywhere in the world, real-time remote monitoring alarms and alerts work as an early warning of potential service disruptions and noncompliance events so that they can be more easily addressed, minimizing loss of service and profit. With the right remote monitoring solution,  we can work proactively instead of reactively.

Remote monitoring is transforming construction project management. By streamlining operations, remote monitoring helps improve communication between parties and shorten timelines, leading to fewer setbacks, faster turnaround, and an improved bottom line.

2020 is set to become the year that remote construction site monitoring supports the market in a substantial way. Amongst many emerging construction technologies, remote monitoring is one of the most streamlined approaches to achieve smarter project management and increased profits.
