  • Switching from Traditional to Digital Asset Management

    Leica ZRover – Faster, more accurate asset management

    Switch from manual tools to digital processes to improve the accuracy and efficiency of collecting asset management information.

    The construction industry is transforming to adopt digital ways of working. Traditional ways are often manual, time consuming and subject to human error.

    Switching to digital asset management, by using the Leica ZRover solution, enables users to digitally locate, record and measure assets on a construction site with the highest accuracy, saving time and reducing errors.

    Get in touch with our expert team to download the overview and learn more about digital asset management.

  • Leica iXE CoPilot - Simplifying the use of tilt rotators with iXE CoPilot

    The excavator operator only needs to concentrate on controlling the digging movement (boom, arm, bucket and slew of the machine) while the tilt and rotation function of the tilt rotator is adjusted automatically based on the reference model surface under the bucket.

    The operator maintains control of the bucket rotation as they dig, allowing them to manage material in the bucket properly but eliminating the need to constantly adjust the tilt of the bucket. This decreases operator fatigue, increases the accuracy of the iXE2/iXE3 excavator solutions and saves time and cost.

  • Leica MS60 MultiStation Use on the Ordsall Chord Network Rail Project in Manchester

    The Ordsall Chord is a flagship Network Rail project in Manchester City Centre and involves the construction of 7 new spans, 300m of new track and the widening of existing Victorian viaducts.  At the centre of the project sits the iconic network arch bridge, the first of its kind in the UK, spanning 90m.  The new link will allow trains to run between Manchester’s Victoria and Piccadilly stations for the first time.

    SCCS – The Survey Equipment Company operates as a preferred supplier to Skanska and have worked in partnership on the Ordsall Chord to successfully deliver equipment, technical support and training. Since the preliminary stages of the project the team have provided assistance with commendable performance, regularly going the extra mile to meet the projects requirements at short notice.

    The use of the Leica MS60 MultiStation has added significant value to engineering and surveying procedures as well as delivering significant time savings on the Ordsall Chord project. Much of the design of the Ordsall Chord project adopts complex geometry to deliver architectural features such as fanned pier extensions. These complex structures meant traditional checking throughout the construction process which would have been challenging. The adoption of the Leica MS60 allowed us to develop an innovative process of scanning and verification/clash detection to reduce risk and streamline the QA process. The Leica MS60 even delivered time savings over modern dedicated laser scan systems, this is where there is a requirement for small amounts point cloud data regularly when captured in conjunction with traditional site engineering and surveying duties.

    On a rail project such as the Ordsall Chord, limited access to track means time on track is precious.  Having the ability to complete a quick scan with our multi station has delivered unforeseen benefits through as built point cloud information as previously additional track visits would have likely been required.
