Barton Malow is leaning forward in digitizing many aspects of construction and looked to Guardhat to help bring tools to its frontline crews to improve safety and productivity. The team wanted to ensure crew members could be quickly found, communicated with and assisted if they faced trouble – both in terms of safety and tasks to complete. Barton Malow was primarily interested in protecting workers in large, congested sites and where weather extremes like heat and lightening were a concern, but also in maintaining open lines of communications across long distances to keep the project running.
