RMD Kwikform launches digital hub

4 May 2021

Formwork and temporary works specialist RMD Kwikform has launched a hub for all its digital innovations and resources: LocusHub.

The hub brings together all of RMD Kwikform’s digital assets including apps, product videos, CAD resources and technical data.

Tools on the hub include LocusEye, RMD Kwikform’s 3D visualisation software, which offers interactive 3D models of temporary work schemes that can be used to reduce on-site risks, as any potential issues can be identified.

The company’s entire catalogue of material handling and guidance notes for its products is also stored on the hub.

“Now is the time for significant, long-lasting and transformative changes to the construction industry’s working practices,” said Matt Wiseman, divisional digital innovation manager at RMD Kwikform. “There is no denying the impact that the covid-19 pandemic has had on the construction industry, but we should also try to see this as an opportunity to embrace digital construction, smarter project management and better health and safety procedures. In a way, the global pandemic may serve as a catalyst for change, leading the construction industry to a stronger and more robust future.

“LocusHub has been created in response to this need, providing a single resource centre for all our digital innovations and assets, so these can be accessed quickly and easily. Whether it’s viewing a 3D visualisation of a project that can be challenged and questioned – even while on the go, from a smartphone app – to simple steps such as properly training a team on how to best handle equipment so they can easily follow social distancing guidelines, the aim of LocusHub is to help us work smarter and more safely.

“Our mission has always been to deliver the very best temporary works solutions, while helping contractors save money, improve productivity and meet the highest health and safety standards. This mission remains the same, but we must now also embrace the opportunities that digitalisation offers, which will help drive substantial operational improvements and add real value for those in the industry.”
