COVID-19

Uncertainty and risk. Two words most of our customers seek to avoid. Amidst all the news regarding COVID-19 and Coronavirus, we stand committed to being here for you and keeping our solutions available throughout these difficult times. We are open for business.

We’ve heard from some customers that they are also implementing work from home strategies and are developing processes to continue working on projects during this crisis. Our first priority remains the health and safety of our employees, customers, partners and the community. Another priority is to remain open for business and to continue to provide livelihoods for our employees, partners and customers. We are in a unique position to have offices in all states and regional areas throughout Australia, allowing our support staff to travel by vehicle to site, rather than rely on air transportation. This allows flexibility and easy adaptation to your organisations’ needs as we continue to partner together.

Our Customer Service staff are all equipped to work remotely and will be able to answer your calls during usual working hours of 6:00am – 5:00pm (EDST).
Our Field Support team has been provided with a Job Safety Analysis (JSA) specifically for personal hygiene, social distancing, and the disinfection of plant and tools, should they be required on your site.
We will continue to monitor our work procedures and advice by the Australian Government, but in the meantime know we’re here for you!

SITECH and UPG double up to get council operations on grade

SITECH’s Dillon Harding and UPG’s Josh Weckert have teamed up to provide the total solution for a rural council.

The pair delivered and installed GCS900 Grade Control on a Wentworth Shire Council grader, a Cat® 140M, and also delivered on-site training.

“The council acquired an R10 GNSS and TSC7 controller from UPG several months before the purchase of the machine control equipment and employed it to assist the civil work among other purposes,” Josh said.

“UPG surveyed the vacant block and created a small road design for the grader and the off-machine equipment,” Dillon said.

“We spent the morning with the guys helping them come to grips with the total station and switching to machine control mode.”

“We also talked about grader best practices and general benching techniques then cut some passes with the machine.”

Josh had Trimble SiteVision running in the background so the council engineers could see the same road design that was in the machine, giving them a greater understanding of the solutions on offer.

“The reaction from the council team, especially SiteVision, was very positive,” Dillon said.

“SiteVision is a major a step forward and, among other advantages, is an amazing way to showcase jobs to projects managers and investors.”

The council is undertaking a section of road redevelopment soon as well as a proposed re-development of the Mildura Aerodrome, in which a tight tolerance is paramount.

“Council representatives came to our demo day in Adelaide last year and saw the live display of our solutions in hardware and software,” Dillon said.

“The decision was made from that experience to outfit the grader with the complete package so the council could do the aerodrome job itself rather than sub-contract it.”

CCF Qld and SITECH CS – a perfect partnership

With a membership that aligns strongly to SITECH’s client base, it’s no wonder the business is the Civil Contractors Federation of Queensland’s technical partner.

The Civil Contractors Federation Queensland Limited (CCF Qld) represents the interests of the civil construction industry in Queensland and ‘aims to enhance the prosperity of members’.
It provides the industry with assistance, expertise and support on industry issues.

CCF Qld advocates for the interests of the industry to all levels of government.

With offices in all states and territories, as well as a national office, CCF Qld covers local, state and national matters facing the civil construction industry.
It also has three Queensland Civil Industry Training Centres located in Brisbane, Townsville and Cairns.

CCF Qld says it is dedicated to servicing the industry and members in six primary ways, ensuring that protecting the industries interests are at the forefront of our delivery:
• Representation and advocacy
• Information and news
• Resources and expertise
• Offers and discounts
• Events, networking, advertising and sponsorships
• Training and careers

SITECH general manager Tim McPhillips said the partnership was a perfect fit for the business.

“The CCF Qld’s membership is mainly smaller to mid size operators and that’s a huge and important part of our client base,” he said. “They’re the cornerstone of our business. “The federation supports the very people we work with so we wanted to be a part of that.

“It’s services, encompassing such elements as advocacy and training, mesh with our business aim to support our clients through our products, training and service. “It is also another way we keep in touch with our clients as well as reach potential clients.”

Tim said the federation’s support of operators in regional areas also suited SITECH.

“We’ve a strong customer base in regional Queensland too, so to lend support to the organisation that helps regional Qld operators is something we’re keen to do,” he said.  “We could spend the money we invest in the CCF Qld in other areas, such as direct marketing, but we believe this organisation is doing good things for contractors in our state, and that’s something we support.”

The federation’s chief executive officer Damian Long said they were ‘proud to partner with a supplier who is known for their quality within the industry’.

“SITECH provides seamless integration from top to bottom in construction-related technology and project control,” he said.  “The business is known for the effort it puts into research and development; and for its customer service and training. “It is continually striving for improvements in productivity and safety for our industry. “SITECH’s commitment to the industry is evident through its support of CCF Qld.
“They’re the perfect technical partners for our federation.”

Angelo Cerullo, Canberra Contractors, demonstrates Trimble SiteVision

Angelo Cerullo, director of Canberra Contractors is so excited about his involvement with the new Trimble SiteVision, that he wanted to share this video of the pioneering augmented reality solution in action.

Here he is on site on one of their Australian Capital Territory (ACT) subdivisions, demonstrating how Trimble SiteVision augmented reality makes it possible for you to walk from the construction site into the virtual completed site.

With Trimble SiteVision you can –

Take a walk through your job site and visualise:

  • Conceptual designs, from buildings to roads, as they might appear in real life
  • What lies beneath the ground or resides inside walls, such as water pipes and electrical services
  • Provide real world context to your designs:⠀
  • Communicate complicated plans and drawings
  • Precisely identify where concealed assets are
  • Minimise costly errors and safety related incidents
  • Simply upload your data, visualise and manipulate it in the field, and report back to the office—all through the Trimble Cloud.
