SiteMap Navigating Compliance with Ease in Infrastructure Development

SiteMap Navigating Compliance with Ease in Infrastructure Development

Compliance is not merely a buzzword when it comes to infrastructure development and maintenance, but a foundational element that ensures safety, efficiency, and sustainability. Civil engineers and infrastructure project managers are well aware of the challenges posed by constantly evolving regulations.

The construction industry is undergoing rapid changes, and professionals are required to keep pace with regulations related to environmental concerns, traffic flow, and more.

SiteMap®, a groundbreaking platform powered by GPRS, stands as a beacon of innovation in construction technology. But how does SiteMap® revolutionize the approach to regulatory compliance? How does it provide a streamlined path through the complex maze of mandates governing the infrastructure landscape?

Understanding SiteMap®

SiteMap® occupies a unique position at the intersection of cutting-edge technology and industry expertise, and is a valuable tool to help managers navigate the compliance labyrinth. As a versatile GIS and facility management platform, it offers an array of features tailored to the needs of professionals dealing with construction codes and standards.

With its user-friendly interface and advanced analytical capabilities, SiteMap® serves as a comprehensive toolkit for those responsible for constructing the landmarks of tomorrow. It is designed to offer new and exciting ways to visualize project sites, addressing the significant issue of utility strikes and the associated excessive costs. Despite the existence of systems like 811, which boasts a 99.47% success rate in locating and marking public utilities, the remaining 0.53% of strikes result in substantial financial impacts, amounting to approximately $62 billion in additional costs for construction, renovation, and infrastructure projects.

The 2021 and 2022 DIRT Reports highlight the persistent challenges leading to utility strikes, including lack of notification to 811 centers and improper excavation practices. SiteMap® aims to reduce the risk of utility strikes by providing accurate and easily accessible data from GPRS locate jobs, allowing for better visualization and management of job sites.
