Panasonic Toughbook Supports Swiss Engineering Company In Move To Paperless Construction Site
KIBAG’s construction workers’ capabilities are transformed with Panasonic Business solutions.
KIBAG, a Swiss civil engineering company, is taking the final step towards a paperless construction site with the adoption of TOUGHBOOK G2 tablets. All workers and contractors can now access digital construction plans using the rugged tablet. The use of the devices shortens execution times and minimises construction errors.

The deployment allows KIBAG employees to electronically share, view, process and comment on construction plans. The solution consists of Panasonic TOUGHBOOK G2 tablets for use outside on the construction site, as well as inside the site office when docked and connected to Panasonic Pro displays.
KIBAG is a pioneer in the implementation of digital projects. “Since we had already digitalised all relevant workflows in our office, it was only logical to also digitalise the construction site. In other words, to implement BIM2Field and make it available to the foreman,” explains Manuel Weyermann, Project Manager for Digitalisation at KIBAG Bauleistungen.
In the site office, a central component of every construction site, the planning and execution documents used to be in paper form. Workers are now able to digitally view and process steps such as execution details, work instructions, orders, delivery documents, logistics processes, and report directly from the construction area.
