IT Solutions and Managed IT Services For Construction Firms

One of Highway 99’s greatest strengths is the close connection we have with the construction industry in general. Construction is becoming more and more data-focussed, and all too often each project requires unique systems and processes. We can help to keep you on track.

You will probably be working through several projects at any one time, each with multiple parties and competing interests. Often, these projects leverage their own systems, making data exchange and access a challenge. We support professionals of all kinds with managed IT services, but many of our best people come to us with years of experience providing IT and related services to construction and civil engineering clients.

IT Tips for the Construction Industry

Backup Your Data

Regular, systematic backups are the first step in a good disaster recovery program. Sooner or later, your data will be at risk, from fire, flood or simple human error. A good backup system will make even a ruined server something you can overcome.

Follow the 3-2-1 rule for data backup:

  • Keep three copies of your most crucial data
  • Use at least two different backup media (tapes, CDs, etc.)
  • Keep at least one copy in a secure, off-site location
  • Audit and test your backups regularly. Nothing is worse than having to go to your backups and discovering that you’ve been recording junk data for the last six months.

Look into IT Asset Management

Much like asset management for your heavy equipment IT, IT asset management allows you to optimize your IT investments and reduce business risk. Good asset management means fewer idle machines, longer service life and lower operating costs. You achieve this via proactive maintenance and upgrades, by knowing precisely where your assets are and who has them checked out, and by disposing of assets at their appropriate end-of-life. All of this improves your medium- and long-term capital planning.

If You Haven’t Yet, Shift to the Cloud

The construction industry has always been documentation-focused, and a modern, secure yet accessible cloud collaboration and documentation solution – especially one tied to a BIM (Building Information Modelling) system, can revolutionize the way you work.

Never Compromise Cybersecurity

Data security is everyone’s job:

  • Never give access to your systems without a good reason, and never to someone who hasn’t proven their identity
  • Don’t leave your devices unattended or logged in – even just over lunch or a break
  • Update your devices and apps on a regular schedule – especially your malware protection
  • Adopt (and enforce) a robust password policy and use two-factor authentication (2FA), especially for remote access
  • Store sensitive data on as few applications and devices as possible
