By taking an innovative new approach to collecting survey data that increases survey efficiency, reduces site time by up to 70% and maximises the value of the data it has been possible to truncate the current design process.
This revised process reduces the initial design time, reduces the site data collection time and therefore reduces the cycle time to Low Level Design with an increased build certainty.
This approach of using good quality survey data ahead of any design activity to better influence design accuracy from the outset has shown in two trial areas:
Delays to design and build activity, increased project costs, delivery issues and lack of confidence in data. These are common problems that we all want to avoid.
Catsurveys and Setics have been working collaboratively to prove the benefit of using high quality survey data at the start of the design process, truncating the design activity and working towards having a single design stage.
