The comprehensive risk, knowledge-based and associated analytics of the CCS Safety Module is generations beyond anything that exists in the marketplace today.  Using a transparent mobile approach to get information to all employees transcends any communication that has been used in the construction industry to date.”

“We at CMCS are excited about joining CCS as a Regional Partner solely on what we have seen in the approach to Safety.  However, their plan to apply this technology and knowledge transfer approach to other aspects of a project such as inspection, project risk, startup, commissioning, turnover, closeout, just to name a few, gives CMCS the potential to be part of developing and distributing a revolutionary tool that will benefit our customers and industry as a whole, like no other tool has in decades,” Bassam added.

“Most importantly for CCS, CMCS believes in the knowledge based community and making the evolutions of the built environment a more positive experience. This is what makes them an ideal partner for CCS,” concluded Davis.
