Hilti Launches New Digital Layout Tool to Boost Productivity

Hilti | January 27, 2023

On January 26, 2023, Hilti North America, a provider of innovative tools, software, technology, and services for the commercial construction industry, introduced the PLT 400, a digital layout tool created to help increase the productivity of jobsite layout crews. Single-operator tools like the PLT 400 are vital due to continued labor shortages and jobsite restrictions. This tool improves accuracy and layout speed, features advanced prism tracking and auto-calibration, and requires minimal training. Improved technology, faster layout, and fewer labor hours contribute to a cost-saving and productivity-boosting solution for jobsites. The PLT 400 can lay out digital BIM (Building Information Modeling) designed plans without the time-consuming step of creating points on the plans first. It can also help keep your BIM model up to date during the construction process, contributing to an optimized end-to-end workflow. The company's digital construction software is also compatible with AutoCAD, Revit, and other specialized layout platforms. The layout tool works in tandem with Hilti's entire solutions ecosystem, including ON!Track and the Fleet program. Aside from access to high-performance tools and cutting-edge technology, Fleet customers also receive free verification of tool accuracy, complying with manufacturer specifications and theft coverage to reduce unexpected expenses and financial risk. In addition, the PLT 400 comes with an industry-leading Tool Warranty and is available in the United States and Canada. Michael Haugtvedt, Product Manager at Hilti North America, shared, "We took customer feedback on our previous total stations and addressed those pain points with the launch of the PLT 400." He added, "This camera-based tool has enhanced prism tracking and upgraded communications making sure you stay connected and increase layout productivity on the jobsite, while a built-in calibration module helps ensure your layout is within spec every time you turn the tool on." (Source – PR Newswire) About Hilti North America Based in Plano, Texas, Hilti provides technology to make construction more efficient, sustainable, and safer.

West Coast Construction | November 28, 2022

United Capital Source helped secure one merchant cash advance totaling $9 million for a west coast construction company. The 32-year-old company will use the funds for a government contract it was awarded for the renovation of two city schools. After receiving the award for the construction contract, the company came to UCS looking for a subordinated line to its current lender. UCS, an online marketplace, worked quickly with the company’s lender and the funder’s legal teams on the language needed in the subordination agreement. The total time to fund the advance was four and a half days. UCS helped to structure the exact deal required within the timeframe necessary so the company could take advantage of the opportunity they had despite this being unconventional funding. The construction company received an immediate cash advance of $6 million, with another $3 million becoming available in twenty days when the second part of their project starts. The merchant cash advance structure is an estimated 12-month deal that includes aggressive prepayment options from three to six months. “This is another example of how our marketplace works. We have partnered with best-in-class lenders and funders who can operate quickly and efficiently across multiple products offering the best rates and terms available. Danielle handled most of the deal, and she worked for 4 days straight assisting the legal teams and working back and forth between all parties getting the deal to the finish line in time for the clients.” -Jared Weitz UCS. The structure of the loan is intended to serve as bridge financing, and that’s exactly how the construction company will use it. UCS VP of Sales Danielle Rivelli handled the deal from start to finish. Danielle’s dedicated service and unique financing structure highlighted UCS’s ability to find business financing options that work for their clients. The construction company acquired the funds to take advantage of the government contract opportunity. United Capital Source, Inc: Is a lending marketplace geared towards driving small business growth. .
