SIDEBAR: Gang Box of the Future
Gang boxes of the future are going to be more of an information management center than just a pile of tools and materials. The Photo shows an example of a much more modern gang box, implemented by F.B. Harding, an electrical contractor in Baltimore, Md., on a data center project in Rockville, Md. The usage of work packages and BIM, as well as on-time schedule and productivity tracking tools, can be instantaneously monitored by the foreman at any location of the job. Allowing the foreman to have the latest information about the job at his fingertips, this type of setup prevents him from having to track down prints or other information about the job (such as CAD or BIM layouts) in hard copy form, which ultimately saves time and money.
