The challenge

Finding a collaborative, easy-to-use and easy-to-deploy technology to monitor environmental impact across large and remote locations.

Mawsons Concrete & Quarries is a leading construction materials supplier based in Victoria and New South Wales. Managing 16 quarries, 40 concrete plants and 7 landscaping centres, the Mawsons team is committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for teams, contractors, customers and the greater community, as well as ensuring they treat the environment with respect.

Shari Rankin, regional resource development and environment manager for NSW, explains, “We're managing the environmental impact of a large number of sites on an ongoing basis. We need technology to help with this, and our old solutions weren’t working for us. We were having to do a lot of hand-held monitoring for noise and use deposition jars for dust. We had monitors, too, but they were very heavy and hard to use. We weren’t getting all the information we needed.”

The solution

Accessing real-time noise, dust, water and weather data at multiple sites.

The Mawsons team has implemented four SiteHive Hexanode Multi devices at different locations, which monitor noise and dust in a single device. Shari explained, “With SiteHive we have an accurate understanding of the baseline noise at the locations, and we’re then able to see if there’s additional noise due to quarry operations.”

The Mawsons teams across NSW and Victoria have access to SiteHive Enviro Pro and are using it on an ongoing basis. All team members can see the environmental impact of activity in real time. Shari says, “Everyone can see what’s happening in SiteHive Enviro Pro, so it’s a good visual reminder for people of their obligations.”

The Mawsons team also uses SiteHive Enviro Pro to manage surface water quality at their quarry sites. Lab results from water collected on site are automatically imported into their SiteHive Enviro Pro software, making them available alongside all their other data. This allows the team to interrogate and analyse the data easily.

Overall, using SiteHive Hexanode devices and SiteHive Enviro Pro software has helped the Mawsons team to do more monitoring, take proactive action as required, minimise environmental impact, and have safer work sites.

"Previously our water data was difficult to interrogate. Now it’s all in SiteHive Enviro Pro and it’s easy to analyse and see trends.”

Benefits and features

Intuitive, easy-to-use, collaborative platform

SiteHive Enviro Pro is useful for individual team members. For example, one of the quarry managers enters her observations into the Daily Notes feature, which provides a full record of what’s happening on individual sites as they have monitored data alongside on-the-ground observations.

AI-powered technology automatically identifies causes of issues

The SiteHive Hexanode devices capture continuous real-time data, as well as images and audio of events. AI technology then automatically categorises the noise and dust data to save time for the team. In their SiteHive Enviro Pro software, the Mawsons team can see what noise and dust are being caused by road and rail traffic or other external aspects and what’s being caused by the concrete facilities.

Easy to manage multiple aspects: noise, dust, water and weather

Another advantage of using SiteHive devices and software is that the team can monitor and manage multiple monitoring streams simultaneously. Shari says, “With SiteHive, we can do dust and noise together at the same site. We can also tap into the on-site weather monitoring, and we can manage it all in SiteHive Enviro Pro.”

SiteHive allows broad oversight over multiple and remote locations

Using SiteHive gives the Mawsons resource team a much broader reach and oversight of their operations. For example, they installed a SiteHive Hexanode device in place in Mildura, about a six-hour drive from Melbourne.

“The SiteHive Hexanode Multi is really easy to use and portable. We just sent the Mildura team the device with instructions, and they set it up themselves. Previously we would have had to wait until we were doing a trip out that way. Now we can be monitoring in remote places immediately.”
