Revolutionizing Sitework: The Unmatched Advantages of GPS Technology in Construction

When it comes to groundbreaking enhancements in the construction domain, GPS technology has dramatically altered how we at JWC approach sitework. Far beyond just a tool for navigation or tracking lost items, GPS has established itself as an indispensable asset for modern construction projects, including excavation and land development.

Why GPS for JWC?

GPS technology is more than a modern convenience; it's a game-changer for the construction industry. It's all about working smarter, not harder, and achieving the highest level of precision that was previously unattainable. Through a combination of cutting-edge technology and skilled operators, we're elevating the standards for excellence in excavating and land development projects.

GPS for Estimating and Preconstruction

Modern construction has gladly said goodbye to manual practices of land surveying, thanks to GPS technology. Even before a project is awarded, JWC employs in-field as-built surveys to better understand the site. Post-award, a 3D model based on CAD drawings is uploaded to our GPS-enabled rover, facilitating tasks like grade checking, as-built surveys, and volume calculations.

Harnessing GPS for Real-Time Land Surveying

As the cost of technology drops and its capabilities expand, we now use GPS for instant land grading and surveying. Operators have real-time data right inside their cabins, visible on a compact monitor. This allows for immediate adjustments, dramatically reducing the risk of errors and subsequent rework.

Compounding Benefits of GPS in Sitework

Adopting GPS technology delivers an exponential return on investment. From reducing labor costs and fuel consumption to mitigating equipment wear and tear, the benefits are many. It's not just about leveling the earth; it's about precise grading for specific slopes and elevations that traditional methods can't guarantee.

The Perfect Blend of Technology and Skill

While we can't overlook the vital role that technology plays, it's essential to recognize that even the most advanced machinery is only as good as its operators. Our team consists of skilled, experienced professionals who will maximize the advantages of GPS technology for your projects.


Bid2Win software is a construction-specific estimating software that helps us streamline our estimating process and improve accuracy.

Accurate Estimation

The core strength of Bid2Win is in its estimation capabilities. With labor, materials, equipment, and other costs fluctuating, using software that accurately gauges expenses is invaluable.

Data-driven Decisions

The software provides analytics and reporting functionalities that help us analyze past bids. It gives us insights about what worked, what may not have worked as well as we hoped, and what can be optimized further. Access to these insights is a value add for all of our clients.

Compliance and Risk Management

In any industry, but perhaps especially so in construction, compliance with regulations and risk management are paramount. Bid2Win helps us in assessing various risks associated with a project and ensures that our bid is compliant with industry standards and regulations.

3D Drone Mapping:

We use drones equipped with cameras and other sensors to capture aerial data from our project sites. The drone flies a site, taking photos and collecting data at various angles. This data is then stitched together using specialized software to create a detailed, three-dimensional map of the area.
