We have developed a two pronged approach to innovation. Firstly we work closely with our clients to understand their project objectives and how they utilise our deliverables. Secondly, we invest time and effort to review and test the latest technological advancements in surveying equipment and software. This approach enables us to identify technological solutions that benefit our clients and then tailor them to suit their specific requirements.
This approach allows us to collaborate with clients and explore creative approaches to:-
- Overcome project challenges
- Save money through efficiencies
- Enhance safety for personnel
- Improve delivery turnaround times
Some examples of innovations generated through this approach are a bespoke application called GasTrak which was developed specifically for Cadent Gas (formally National Grid) and Mobile GPR Mapping carried out for Transport for London. (See below for more details)
