How UBG Keeps Up with Emerging Technology and Safety on the Job Site

While construction is one of the most dangerous industries, it’s also constantly evolving. Every year, new products and technology further revolutionize the way we work and keep our employees safe while on the job. Commercial construction companies can’t afford not to make construction safety the most important priority, which is why Unique Building Group (UBG) always keeps our finger on the pulse of the latest technology advancements.

The industry’s top general contractors turn to UBG as a reliable partner, but they also consider us experts and the gold standard when it comes to safety in the industry. We owe it to our partners and our clients to stay at the forefront of construction safety and technology. Here are some of the ways we keep up with emerging tech and safety trends:

We’re Constantly Investing In Tech

Our dedicated commitment to new technology starts at the top of the house. UBG’s leadership team is constantly looking for ways to improve the business. We take the time to carefully consider various tech solutions, how they’ll integrate into our daily procedures, and the general improvements to safety we’d expect to see as a result of our investment. Over the years, we’ve invested heavily in software that helps streamline operations, drones that provide a bird’s eye view of job site hazards, and communication tools that help our workers stay connected on the job.

We Have A Large Network

UBG has been in the business for more than three decades. During this time, we’ve developed strong relationships with general contractors, subcontractors, service providers, and manufacturers. As a result, we’re often one of the first to know when new construction technology hits the market. If we see other companies using new technology while on the job, we often check it out and try to learn from their experiences. Our network helps us stay at the forefront of industry trends.

We Recruit The Best Talent

At UBG, we work on some complicated projects. We also recognize we’re nothing without our talented people. Therefore, we recruit some of the very best talent in the industry to deliver on our work. Our team of experts is the very best at what we do, so we’re naturally always on the lookout for new ways to work safely and efficiently. 

We’re Always Learning

As construction safety evolves, it’s our responsibility to keep up. We want to be the very best at what we do, and in order to achieve this, we’re constantly learning and improving. All UBG foremen are a minimum OSHA 30 trained and all project leads are OSHA 10 trained, and that’s just the start. We conduct several year-round trainings via M2 safety and attend courses, conferences, seminars, and even daily safety check-ins. Through our commitment to education, our teams are able to stay on top of all the industry’s latest trends.

We also integrate best-in-class safety standards into everything we do. Safety is ingrained in our company culture, and this expectation is set at the top of the house. By implementing good habits, safety best practices are second nature to us.

At UBG, we tackle some of the largest and most complex commercial framing jobs around, so staying on top of the latest tech and safety trends is even more important for our company.
