The biggest names in the construction industry gathered at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London on Tuesday 10th July for the highly anticipated Construction News Awards 2012. The evening, hosted by BBC Broadcaster Clare Balding announced the three largest construction projects of the year; two of which are managed by HRS’ workforce management system MSite.
HRS in partnership with Lend Lease was also in good company nominated within the ‘Best Use of Technology’ award category up against the likes of Balfour Beatty, Costain and BAM Nuttall. It is amongst these big construction industry names that advancements in technology are particularly important as the ever present challenge of managing multiple projects is addressed.
Neil Norman, Human Recognition Systems CEO commented “Our involvement in two of the year’s biggest construction projects is a significant achievement and demonstrates the robust capabilities of MSite in large scale enterprise management of workforce and site access control. “
The largest construction site in Europe, the Olympic Park, presented this challenge to Human Recognition Systems requiring identity and high security management across a vast continuously changing landscape. HRS met this requirement providing a solution that integrates numerous streams of data controlling access through hand and iris recognition utilising a secure smart card.
Neil added “We have seen a steady shift within the construction industry over recent years towards enterprise level biometric workforce management systems. This enables sites across the country to be managed centrally with the ability to report across all projects at the touch of a button. MSite has proven to add significant value through this real time operational information.”
