Tipping My Cap to the App
- Written by Mark Kuhar
October 11, 2011 – Graniterock is going mobile. The company has developed an iPhone application for construction calculation that can help construction engineers estimate the amount of material that will be needed for his or her construction project. The calculators are grouped into several different categories: Unit Conversion, Concrete Materials, Aggregate, Road Materials, Masonry Estimator, and Mulch. The company does add a disclaimer: "This free application is provided on an “as is” basis for customer convenience, and should be used only as guide. While reasonable efforts have been taken to ensure the accuracy of these calculators, no warranties are made to their accuracy nor to their completeness for all uses. Estimating is best done by professionals with a clear understanding of the engineering and construction requirements of a project." Kudos to Graniterock for pushing the industry tech needle forward.
