Proudly Pasifika-owned and Pasifika-led, TROW Group not only deconstructs buildings, it donates quality materials and office furniture from these deconstruction projects to iwi, schools, church groups, and smaller businesses within New Zealand. It then goes further, with remaining materials shipped to the Pacific to help rebuild and furnish cyclone-prone nations.
We recently installed an external noise monitoring solution at a TROW Group deconstruction site. Click the link below to learn how Adroit’s monitoring data will assist TROW in taking deconstruction to the next level.
Former New Zealand Warrior and Kiwi league legend Joe Vagana, is the Healthy & Safety and Compliance Manager across the entire TROW organisation. He’s excited to have brought Adroit onto the worksite to trial an innovative IoT worksite solution.
Adroit monitoring stations at the perimeter of the worksite measure noise in decibels, dust is also measured in PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 grades, and temperature is another metric captured. This data is constantly reported via a Libelium logger to the Adroit platform using the specialised Spark IoT Cat-M1 network, where it can be viewed from any device, including the mobile phones of the management team.
Armed with this data, the TROW team are able to see issues as they occur, and work to continuously improve their performance.
“It’s important to us that we work alongside our residents and our neighbours. We have 24-ton machines and all the normal hazards that you have on the construction site. There are a lot of disruptions that the residents could have to go through – if we can do that little bit extra and monitor noise and dust, it’s good for everyone.
So if we get too noisy we can fix that issue, or on the other side if we get complaints, we can actually pull out the data and say, well actually, we’re not making that much noise!”
