Topcon Positioning GB, a provider of construction technology, has joined forces with Digital Construction Skills (DCS), which has been awarded funding from the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and Innovate UK, to help provide the skills and knowledge needed to ensure the industry is fit for the future.

Topcon has become an Expert Partner for the construction skills and training consultancy, DCS, to offer its expertise and technology, especially around machine control systems, to tackle the industry’s looming skills gap and to help accelerate recovery in the wake of the global health crisis. The technology provider will offer online training sessions, digital demonstrations and on-hand experts for those accessing DCS support, all fully funded by CITB.

Gail McEwan, operations manager at DCS with over ten years’ experience as a civil engineer, said: “There’s so much talk about digital, and so many solutions on the market, which is fantastic, but that can also mean it’s quite daunting for contractors to make a decision on what’s best for their projects and their teams.

“Now more than ever it’s important there’s a focus on skills as we will need to work hard to help our industry recover, and digital tools will be critical in aiding that process.”
