Rugged Tablet and Digital Twin: The New Norm for Engineering and Construction Projects

Digital twins in construction are becoming prevalent in the development and construction phases of a building because they show the project on a dynamic plane. It emphasizes the critical role that digital building information plays throughout a property’s life cycle–  from the planning stages to the later stages of development as a workplace.

Building for Success with Rugged Tablets

With the ability to remotely modify spreadsheets, handle various projects, monitor inventories, and maintain smooth communication, smartphones and tablets have become an essential part of our life. However, the majority of cell phones and tablets are not made to withstand harsh conditions like those on a construction site, with fluctuating weather, a lot of dust, or repeated drops.

Rugged tablets for construction sites were created as a result in order to have unique characteristics, particular strength, and resistance to moisture and environmental factors.

Four reasons rugged tablets for construction are the best solution:

Eliminate Paperwork at Construction Sites

There are several records and drawings that must be created and periodically updated in the building sector. Carrying physical papers, such as blueprints for structures, labor records, or materials, can be exhausting and vulnerable to theft or damage. 

Construction managers and supervisors can digitize all of these documents and drawings using rugged tablets, which improves labor productivity and reducing the probability of losing paperwork or making mistakes that require a total redo of the drawings, rather than making them in real time. Even when working on remote construction sites, the system included in rugged tablets may be accessible by many different departments and team members. This connectivity enables real-time data sharing and access between departments, accelerating the decision-making process.

Durable and Efficient in Extreme Environments

Workers at a building site frequently move from one location to another. As a result, they need technology that is portable and reliable. Lightweight and digitalized rugged tablets can fully automate the building work process.

Everything is digitalized and safely stored on the network, so construction workers who use rugged tablets don’t have to worry about losing their designs and other paperwork documents. Whether carried around a work site, mounted in a vehicle or equipment, or on the office desk, rugged tablets perform in many places and conditions inside and outside.


Constant communication between many teams is crucial in large infrastructure projects, it guarantees correct coordination and command flow. To provide seamless push-to-talk services, rugged tablets are created with sophisticated communication functions.

To ensure effective communication that enhances employees’ morale and increases productivity, many of the rugged tablet models are also built with dedicated PTT buttons that offer a walkie-talkie feature. Rugged tablets are also built with integrated WiFi features for continual connectivity. Inventory can be constantly tracked and orders automatically placed to prevent downtime.


Rugged tablets are a more affordable alternative to desktop computers and the durable case and components are designed to withstand rough handling and all of the environmental conditions that may be encountered in the field. As each task and part of the project is completed and documented, billing can send out invoices and get paid faster enabling better cash flow for required purchases.

DT Research rugged tablets feature high-resolution, sunlight-readable screens and high-definition cameras, that can also be custom-equipped with all the peripherals and software that your team needs for every phase of construction. The investment in rugged tablets provides long-term cost savings in both equipment and maintenance and repair costs. 

From the construction site trailer to where the foundation is being dug, construction rugged laptop computers and tablets came to be mounted directly onto heavy equipment or carried by field personnel, rugged tablets make instant cost-saving decisions.

Construction businesses operate with narrow profit margins and limited room for mistakes or waste. Rugged, sunlight-readable tablet computers can be used to make cost-saving judgments, increase building site efficiency, and transfer information quickly in real time. The rugged tablets and laptops from DT Research are made to make jobsite multitasking simple and effective, even under the most difficult circumstances.
