Engineering News Record recently interviewed our CEO, Robert Costantini, and Jason Pelkey, SVP and Chief Information Officer at Gilbane Building Company about the steps they’re taking to keep essential construction projects moving during this pandemic. Gilbane turned to Triax and was one of the first contractors to deploy our newest solution, Proximity Trace, on their jobsites.
The Proximity Trace wearable tag made by Triax Technologies is a variation on the company’s Spot-r safety monitoring tag that had already been used on an ad-hoc basis for monitoring monitoring social distancing on jobsites. But Pelkey wanted something more purpose-built to deal with operating jobsites under the threat of COVID-19.
“I reached out to them and I found that they were on the same page I was,” says Pelkey. “I think there’s a use case for IoT to work for social distancing, since it’s all about knowing where people are.”
