How to Keep Budgets on Track With Proper Material Management

Posted by Eric Osborn on Apr 9, 2018 8:02:00 AM

Material management is a critical system to all businesses, especially commercial construction. According to Foundry Magazine, inventory and materials represent on average 15% of a business’s total firm asset. And improper management leads to costly consequences. 

The goal of material management is to efficiently plan, purchase, procure and distribute all resources needed for a construction project. When properly implemented, material management ensures all construction components are available without the threat of an out-of-stock item that could cause delays or harm to the budget. 

Materials represent a major cost in construction. Poor planning can result in project delays and increased costs. Read on to learn how to keep your budgets on track with these effective material management tips.

PoE 101: An Introduction to Power over Ethernet

Posted by CADDY on Mar 28, 2018 8:03:00 AM

What is Power over Ethernet (PoE)?

Power over Ethernet is a technology designed to safely deliver both electrical power and data to remote devices. It uses standard Ceategory 5/6/6A UTP cable in an Eethernet network. Power and data co-exist on copper conductors and do not affect each other* (BICSI, Ty Estes, 2015).

Drop-in Loop Hanger: Better for Employee Training

Posted by Colin Andrews on Mar 21, 2018 3:55:03 PM

Traditionally, pipe hangers have been commodity products that are similar across manufacturers. Although low in material cost and sufficient at holding pipe, they can be expensive because of the long, tedious installation process. Most contractors install pipe by sliding each section through the hanger individually and later add turns, sprinkler heads, and branch lines. The whole process is timely and involves hours of tedious overhead work.

The CADDY Drop-in Loop Hanger makes installation much simpler and quicker. Because pipe does not need to slide through the hanger, large assemblies can be prefabricated on the ground and installed in one piece.
