Construction Connectivity, Inc. Helps Higgins Flooring Stay Ahead of the Game!

Higgins Flooring faced a very demanding production schedule, while performing the installation during the harsh New England climate in a partially climatized building. The project involved installation of many high-performance floor coverings to meet demands of the active space, requiring the adherence to manufacturers’ ambient conditions specifications during the acclimation period, throughout the entire installation—and then for a two-week period following completion.

No stranger to challenges, Higgins Flooring turned to Construction Connectivity for use of its Floorcloud™ real-time, quality management technology platform. The SaaS custom solution uses climate sensor technology, cellular IoT networks and a proprietary database of manufacturer’s product specifications.

The system would enable the jobsite to be monitored in real-time, remotely and precisely, 24/7/365. It also would provide a cloud-based, secure digital vault for Higgins to store important data-graphs, photos and other significant information about the installation.

Concrete RH Testing – The Importance of Doing Concrete RH Testing Correctly

INSTALL Alliance Partner Tramex Meters and the Importance of Doing Concrete RH Testing Correctly

Relative Humidity testing of concrete floor slabs involves a waiting period of 24 hours before taking relative humidity measurements. But, why is there a 24 hour waiting period after drilling that hole and when should the RH sensors be inserted?

These are critical considerations for successful RH testing and there are very good reasons why the procedure should be understood and followed correctly and the sensors be inserted at the right time. Learn more from the experts at Tramex Meters at the link below.

Customers Test Drive Technologies Enhancing Project Excellence
Schönox HPS North America, Inc. and Floorcloud™ announced their partnership to provide flooring professionals with introductory opportunities to use Graco pumps and Floorcloud™ technology on large-scale projects at no cost. The collaboration allows installers and contractors the chance to experience Schönox’s pump program and the Floorcloud™ technology platform on real-world projects, achieving outstanding performance and quality control objectives supported by these technologies.

“Schönox’s primary points of focus include Hands ÖN technology, training, and service, making the relationship with Floorcloud™ to provide the pump program and monitoring technology a strategic connection and opportunity for flooring professionals nationwide,” explained Thomas Trissl, Principal, Schönox HPS North America. “Floorcloud™ equips busy flooring contractors with the ability to monitor and communicate the real-time environmental and site conditions they face with project stakeholders so everyone understands the criteria influencing project success.”

The Schönox pump program gives installers and contractors access to a Graco pump and a Schönox technical expert for two days, pairing large-scale, self-leveling projects with training and expanded business opportunities. Flooring professionals experience the time-savings, skilled-labor optimization, and enhanced project outcomes first hand, using Schönox and Graco pumps.

“This partnership puts Schönox’s high performance self-leveling compounds and the Floorcloud™ monitoring platform in the hands of flooring pros, giving them great opportunities to test drive these technologies”, commented Scott Banda, Co-Founder and President, Floorcloud™. “Just as Schönox has seen outstanding adoption of its subfloor products and pump systems via this program, we believe participants will quickly see the Floorcloud™ benefits, combining Schönox and Floorcloud™ for greater project success.”

The Floorcloud™ mobile, desktop, and sensor technologies allow contractors to monitor, communicate, and store essential jobsite, product, and environmental data, while also capturing project photos and notes across process steps. The highly intuitive platform utilizes 4G cellular-enabled climate sensors and a proprietary product specification database of leading flooring industry brands. “Floorcloud™ now connects manufacturers and contractors in a way they never experienced, enabling project stakeholders to take corrective actions quickly to help prevent failures from occurring in the first place,” stated Patrick Mullins, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, Floorcloud™.

“Floorcloud™ equips flooring contractors with the ability to see jobsite environmental conditions in real time comparing those conditions to manufacturers’ technical data information using the mobile and desktop Floorcloud™ platforms,” commented Ryan Bassett, Product Support Specialist, Schönox HPS North America. “Subfloor projects, especially those of larger scale, need the advantages Floorcloud™ provides, reducing risks, enhancing project performance, and providing a central location to document all details; we are delighted to take this step forward with Floorcloud™ to further support flooring professionals.”
