Here you will find a variety of sustainability messages, from manufacturers and contractors of all different sizes. We invite you to share with us YOUR company’s sustainability message.
Trimble is transforming how the world's work gets done. The company's industry-specific solutions integrate advanced capabilities that enable economic breakthroughs, enhance safety, boost compliance and reduce environmental impact - helping customers tackle some of the greatest challenges their industries face including:
- Constructing, maintaining and operating roads, railways and other civil infrastructure more quickly, safely and cost-efficiently.
- Building, maintaining and operating residential and commercial buildings in less time, at lower cost, and while achieving higher quality and environmental standards.
By applying innovative Trimble building construction technologies - including robotic total stations, tablets, digital levels, prisms, building information modeling (BIM) software and project- and budget-management tools - to solve business challenges, contractors and building owners gain access to better information to enable better decisions and reduced environmental impact.
For example, the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System is ideal for bulk earthworks, compaction and finished grading. It allows operators to work faster, more consistently, and get the job done right the first time, which eliminates rework. Less fossil fuel is used, personnel and machine use is reduced, greater regulatory compliance is achieved, and material usage can be carefully controlled. A Trimble GCS900 system results in higher quality work delivered to the client, and increased profits for you. Click here for more information.
Completed in 2013, the 125,000-square-foot Trimble Rockies Campus in Westminster, Colorado, is a beautiful, glassed-in structure, which provides an impressive array of how Trimble’s building construction technologies help improve efficiency and reliability, while reducing errors, rework and material waste.
