Integration improves construction verification workflow

June 6th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Topcon has develop a workflow that connects to the GTL-1000 integrated compact scanner with its Magnet Collage data processing and ClearEdge3D Verity automated construction verification software. The seamless integration creates a complete package that provides users with a live, as-built model of projects, allowing users to identify and rectify any discrepancies. The new system takes what was a lengthy and specialty process and compresses all the steps, reducing the overall verification time. From removing the SD card from the scanner to having the data ready to use can be done in 20 minutes. This means that a site engineer can complete a 360° scan in the morning and by lunch time be back out on site correcting any errors that have been identified. The benefits extend to sub-contractors, who can share the verification data, meaning all parties are working from the same construction quality heat maps. The GTL-1000 has very little impact on the role of the site engineer, requiring no additional training or need for scanning specialists. They simply carry out the layout as usual using proven prism tracking and accuracy then initiate a scan. The new construction verification ecosystem has been tested on site for 12 months by leading infrastructure group Balfour Beatty.
