COMIT Community Day at JCB Global HQ

Harriet Brewitt

GeoSLAM were delighted to join the COMIT group for their June Community Day, held at the prestigious JCB Global Headquarters at Rocester, Staffordshire, UK.

COMIT (standing for Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT) is dedicated to bringing the construction and technology sectors together, enabling them to learn from each other and improving the efficiencies of the construction industry. Founded in August 2003, the group now boasts over 40 organisations and this year celebrates its 15th year.

The combination of technology and construction is a perfect fit for GeoSLAM, with our rapid mobile mapping technology already being used to increase efficiencies throughout the construction build cycle. Applications Engineer Mike Dutch and Marketing Co-ordinator Stuart Cadge formally introduced GeoSLAM and presented case studies relevant to the group. They also received their membership certificate from COMIT Director, Iain Miskimmin.

Attendees on the day included representatives from major construction and engineering companies, including BAM Nuttall, Wates and Willmott Dixon.

Following the presentation schedule, the group were treated to a tour of the JCB facility, learning some of this incredible company’s 70+ year history. The tour included a ‘behind the scenes’ peek of the factory floor, where some of the company’s 300+ models are built. After seeing the slick nature of the operation, it’s no wonder that JCB are recognised as one of the top 3 manufacturers of construction equipment in the world.

GeoSLAM look forward to attending the next Community Day in September.
