On-Site Magazine

Celebrating photography and technology

The February edition of On-Site is one that I look forward to every year. Our annual photo contest is a great opportunity to showcase some of the amazing work, and jobsites, of our readers throughout Canada, including the cover shot by tower crane operator Moe Lepage. What a great view of a sunset over Ottawa. He’s got a great office.

The only regret that I tend to have is that quite a few very good shots – contenders for accolades – end up not making it into our pages. There are a few of these contenders that I have marked for possible use this year, however, so keep your eyes on the pages of On-Site to see if you or your colleagues show up in a future edition.

In the meantime, I encourage you to check out our current digital edition (February 2024, if you are reading this in the months and years after posting) to enjoy the celebration of Canadian construction that starts on page 19. It is proof that there are some great photographers in our readership. And don’t forget to keep the cameras rolling as 2024 progresses. Next year’s contest will kick off in December, and you cannot enter a picture you forgot to take.

The other key theme in the February edition is technology, with our Technology Report exploring Artificial Intelligence (AI). More than a buzzword, AI is emerging as a game changer for construction.


Software and app creators have started to work this technology into their platforms, making use of it to find patterns and anomalies that can be difficult to notice without processing massive amounts of data.

As a coach, I’ve even investigated a few AI-based camera systems for sports teams. These systems use AI to follow and record the play, which is great for analysis and player improvement.

If you or your company are thinking about how to harness the power of AI, I invite you to check out some of the advice from our recent panel all about AI in Construction, which is summarized on page 34.

There was a lot of knowledge shared by the panel, including some great advice about developing structures and rules that will help govern safe and appropriate use of AI by your teams.

Until next time, stay safe and do good work.
