Leica iCON Total Station & Modern Construction Workflows

As it becomes more and more important for construction companies to be up-to-date with multiple building regulations, including environmental protection and living space optimisation, construction companies must be ready to deal with managing and planning more complicated living spaces along with decreased space and availability for new homes.

Now, it is inevitable that within the building and construction industry companies will move away from the traditional analogue layout methods of managing and planning to digital layout techniques and workflows.


So what's the solution?

The Leica Geosystems iCON range of powerful construction Total Stations is easily the best answer.



The Leica iCON range combines robust hardware and intuitive software to increase performance and decrease costs by streamlining and perfecting construction operation and workflow.

Leica iCON build software works with all iCON products and provides intelligent workflow and applications with innovative software design and the intuitive user interface provides accuracy and flexibility for daily onsite tasks. It's easy to carry out tasks using unique features and graphical interface such as laying out profile boards, control lines, branch arcs, bay windows, point patterns, offsets etc. It all becomes a simplified process.


Which Total station is right for you?

The Leica Geosystems iCON range offers both manual and robotic options.

Leica iCON range

Manual Total Station Options:


The Leica iCON iCB50 Total Station

The Leica iCON iCB50 construction total station makes your first step from conventional analogue layout methods to modern digital techniques which are needed for modern BIM processes extremely simple. Easy-to-use and designed specifically for applications in the building construction industry, the iCB50 is usable with minimal training of the existing workforce, making you ready for the no-tapes and no-strings approach to construction layout.

The Leica iCON iCB50 allows you to:

  • Layout points and lines quickly and accurately
  • Layout complex structures easily
  • Quickly perform verticality checks on formwork and structures
  • Complete fast and accurate as-built measurements
  • Work with digital design data including fully rendered models in IFC format



The Leica iCON iCB70 Total Station

The Leica iCON iCB70 is the more accurate of the two manual total stations allowing you to layout more points per day on your construction project with either prism or reflectorless measurements. Featuring mobile data capability, you can transfer construction data between the office and the instrument directly. Facilitating the move from traditional analogue layout methods to modern digital workflows, the iCB70 helps you to achieve the productivity and accuracies demanded by the building construction industry.

The Leica iCON iCB70 allows you to:

  • Keep tight project tolerances by measuring to a prism
  • Layout points and lines quickly and accurately, even on complex structures
  • Perform verticality checks on formwork and structures
  • Complete fast and accurate as-built measurements
  • Report volume calculations directly on site
  • Work with digital design data including fully rendered models in IFC format
  • Transfer construction data directly to and from the instrument


Robotic Total Station Options:


The Leica iCON iCR70 Total Station

Leica Geosystems iCON iCR70 also facilitates the move from traditional analogue measurement methods to modern digital layout techniques, necessary within modern BIM processes. The iCR70 can be used by the existing construction workforce with minimal training and does not disrupt existing construction processes.

The Leica iCON iCR70 allows users to:

  • Layout lines for footings or chalk line for formwork on foundation
  • Layout points on blinding layer such as pipe insert or cut-outs before pouring concrete
  • MEP layout of hanger locations for HVAC and ductwork, inserts and slits for sheet metal work
  • Fully automatic layout routines of points on floor or ceiling and lines for pipe wall penetrations


The Leica iCON iCR80 Total Station

The Leica iCON iCR80 robotic construction total station keeps its ‘eye’ on only one thing: the user’s target. Layout more points per day thanks to ATRplus, the most robust automated-aiming, lock and re-lock technology in the market. The iCR80 is especially useful in congested sites with many distractions, such as reflections, machines and people moving around. Challenging and changing site conditions should not be an obstacle. In addition to the ICR70...

The Leica iCON iCR80 allows users to:

  • Layout true design objects based on federated and enriched models
  • Control a wide variety of construction machines, such as curb and gutter or milling
  • machines, asphalt or concrete pavers, and graders or dozers


All Leica iCON total stations come with the added security of Leica LOC8 - anit-theft technology for added deterrence and fleet management.
