Construction sites are exposed to the vagaries of the weather, and they can be dangerous workplaces when surfaces are wet and slippery. Therefore, Scandinavian construction sites might be closed down for several weeks during wintertime due to frost and rain, which prolongs the construction time. In addition to that, wet conditions can damage building materials, which is a challenge in rainy regions.

SiteCover is a combined cover and crane for construction sites that allows the construction of new buildings to become an indoor activity. SiteCover is storm- and snowproof according to Danish standards, and ensures good and dry working conditions for the workforce. This significantly improves working conditions and safety and ensures a stable construction process with no weather-related interruptions. The structure provides weather protection, cranes and factory-grade facilities that include gates, lighting and ventilation, and can be used in the building industry.

Using SiteCover enables the use of sustainable organic building materials, and it reduces the construction period significantly because the cover makes it possible to work 365 days a year. The structure is also designed to become a frame for future 3D printing of buildings.
