Members of our Support team will be traveling to Hawaii, Wyoming, Wisconsin and Australia to meet with clients on-site and at their desks. We’ll be training teams on beginner measurements using an iPhone, then onto advanced tips and techniques using the patent-pending Stockpiles App.
As the US moves into the Fall season, it is now Spring in Australia. Although mining remains highly competitive in Australia, there are other major industries that measure stockpiles. Thousands of quarries produce concrete aggregates, asphalt and sealing aggregates, crushed rock, sands and gravels, pavement materials and base and sub-base for road, civil and site works.
The Master Builders of Australia have forecasted growth in construction. After growth estimated at 6.4 per cent in 2013-14, the value of residential building work may grow by a further 30 per cent over the forecast period, from $51 billion in 2013-14 to $68 billion in 2016-17.
You might be surprised to learn that Hawaii has a number of quarries, too. Quarry sand and gravel supports Hawaii construction. The construction sector in Hawaii is expected to be one of the main engines for economic growth in 2014 and 2015.
