Cold Milling is the controlled removal of an asphalt or concrete surface by either a partial or full depth application. Milling machines are self-propelled, and of sufficient size to provide the traction and stability required to remove the pavement surface. Equipped with automatic grade control systems, surfaces can be milled to specified elevations, profiles and cross slopes. Cold Milling revolutionized the road construction and rehabilitation industry in the mid-1970s and has continued to evolve and improve over the years.
One of the premier regional milling companies who was integral in pioneering the Cold Milling industry is our latest featured GoCanvas subscriber. This GoCanvas client is dedicated to providing its customers with top quality service utilizing a fleet of late-model mills, tractor trailers, water and service trucks. In addition to state-of-the-art equipment and some of the most experienced personnel in the industry, they have also incorporated technology to best service their customers, run more efficiently and cut costs.
GoCanvas is helping this leader in the road construction field to manage workers hours on the job, track project specifications, and equipment maintenance all from their BlackBerry Smartphones. Prior to GoCanvas all of this information was collected on paper forms using standard time sheets and project logs. Today, this information is simply entered into their custom mobile application on their Smartphone and sent back to project managers and accounting personnel in real-time. Their custom mobile app was created using Canvas’s self-serve App Builder in a matter of minutes, is managed completely by the client and provides a complete solution that is more affordable than the paper it replaced.
