What happens when you leave a huge piece of construction equipment sitting idle? Well, sometimes it turns into a cow’s back scratcher. It’s this kind of equipment underutilization that United Rentals, the world’s largest equipment-rental company, seeks to highlight in its new B2B campaign created in partnership with Droga5.

The campaign, titled 'A Better Worksite is Here,' shines a light on improving worksite efficiency across construction, industrial and infrastructure projects throughout North America. The full campaign components include TV, immersive content, contextual OOH and targeted digital.

To help people see inefficiencies in the real world, the United Rentals campaign is launching with hyper-contextual OOH and geo-targeted digital creative surrounding significant infrastructure projects across the US and Canada. The campaign drives audiences to an immersive website experience that explores how new ways of applying intelligent equipment, data and expertise can tackle worksite inefficiency. It also features summaries about more than 50 of the largest, real-world infrastructure projects in the US and Canada and what it will take to complete them.

The first film of the integrated campaign, 'Idle,' showcases a beautiful montage of what happens to equipment when it sits idle. The film, directed by Rob Leggatt from Knucklehead, highlights opportunities for customers to improve worksites, reflecting the everyday beauty often overlooked on worksites.
