PODFather Earthworks has been Highly Commended by the judges of the Construction News awards, held on 11th July 2013, in the Digital Built Britain category. The PODFather eTicketing system for earthworks automates the production and management of waste conveyance notes and associated paperwork. The solution was deployed by BAM Nuttal for use on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
BAM Nuttall, winners on the night in the category for Project of the year (over £50m), were awarded contracts in four areas of the Olympic Park for infrastructure works and deployed the PODFather Earthworks system to help manage material movements and improve productivity on site.
Highly Commended: The PODFather eTicketing for Earthworks – Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park
The PODFather, a proof-of-delivery system for earthworks, took a concept from another industry and applied it to a construction process, immediately bringing multiple benefits. The eTicketing system for earthworks automates the production and managing of waste conveyance notes and associated paperwork. The judges were impressed with the potential this initiative has to be quickly rolled out to other construction management processes.
The PODFather is an effective solution that delivers improved productivity and reduction of waste.
