Geospatial data is a key enabler in the digital transformation of the construction sector. Murphy Geospatial offer valued services to lead and support this transition with certainty.Contact
According to McKinsey Global Institute, the construction sector is among the least digitised of 22 sectors considered in their analysis, second last to agriculture. There is enormous potential to reduce costs in the sector by adopting digital processes. Murphy Geospatial has the vision to lead the digital transformation in the sector through our highly accurate digital construction services. The verified geospatial data we produce through our GeoCert™ platform feeds into the digital support systems and collaboration tools that enable the efficiencies and cost reductions promised by the digital transformation to become a reality.
During construction, the geospatial coordination of multiple stakeholders on large infrastructure projects is a particular challenge, especially on large projects. Long linear projects present unique complications regarding geospatial coordination due to grid reference alignment and geoid transformations. The understanding of XYZ position consistency and determination should not be underestimated and poses many technical problems to project stakeholders who may all approach these challenges differently. Governance is part of the solution to overcome these problems.
The establishment of an administered baseline control network is of critical importance. In addition, setting protocols around the access to the control network information and history of usage should serve to increase accountability around its use. A control network with associated base survey serves as a reliable and trusted single source of truth and enables coordination of design and construction throughout the project. This results in less risk of design clashes and problems with misalignments on site. It also makes possible the use of machine control for construction equipment and establishes a traceable flow of coordination on the project.
Digitalisation is revolutionising the construction industry. New technology and processes are being used to capture and harness data to make the construction industry more efficient and safer. On a project of any magnitude, these efficiencies can result in cost savings and risk reduction, whilst providing a competitive edge during tender stages. From design, groundworks and civils, through to MEP, cladding and fit-out, we provide a range of integrated geospatial services that improves digital construction quality control, reduces risk and informs decisions, adding value to your projects.
