Company exhibits and presents at world’s largest project controls expo

More than 1,500 project controls experts and leaders from the UK, United States, Australia, and the Middle East attended the Project Controls Expo to learn, meet peers and discover commercial opportunities. Held at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London, the world’s largest event of its kind featured 90 speakers and 53 exhibition stands. In addition to exhibiting at this year’s event, Locana staff presented the power of integrating project scheduling with location mapping to improve visibility of project plans and progress.

Locana, location, and project controls

Project controls is the use of processes to improve the management of projects.

Locana provides project controls technology and services that support environments using project software. Locana doesn’t provide project management as a function – rather, we implement, integrate and support teams that run projects and ensure their systems are on supported, performant, secure, and stable platforms.

Linking project controls and location enables transformative enterprise projects that support cities, massive infrastructure, capital projects, and transport systems. PwC predicts worldwide infrastructure spending will grow to $9 trillion per year in 2025. With average of 2% spent on project controls, the total market size would be $20 billion.

Location intelligence within projects is an evolution from seeing location and project separately. Locana can connect communications, scheduling, health and safety and other functions to location information which leads to less ambiguity and greater precision in projects that involve assets.

Locana provides information, education, support, customer service, and troubleshooting of project systems as well as inside projects for specific tasks. Our team consists of project specialists with deep infrastructure and data knowledge and experience, serving customers consisting of mostly large asset owners, their tier 1 contractors, and consultancies.

The Locana team that attended the Expo enjoyed catching up with our long-term customers. They helped other organisations discover better ways to improve their project controls systems.

Mario Sanvitale, Locana’s Business Development Principle, and Dan Culli, Locana’s Senior GIS Manager, presented the benefits of Locana’s approach to the audience; you can see Dan’s and Mario’s presentation HERE.

I’ve worked in the construction field for decades, before much technology was used,” explained Mario Santivale. “I’m fascinated by how technology can manage ways of delivering projects to make them safer, faster, better. Cloud makes applications so flexible, and Locana’s approach to delivering consistent, superior project controls environments makes us a leader in this field.”

Locana is attending Digital Construction Week on 17-18 May at ExCel London. The team will be on Stand D607. Swing by the booth to learn more about the power of leveraging location intelligence within projects.
