Transportation construction has come a long way since Barnhill built the state’s first farm-to-market road in1952. Today, agencies are expected to do more with less. We believe that embracing technology gives us an advantage in today’s market. Combining 3D modeling with GPS machine control allows us to complete projects faster with improved quality and safety. Gone are the days of pulling stringline. Using 3D model data, GPS-enabled equipment achieves accurate grades on the first pass, reducing waste and eliminating the need for costly rework.
It’s all about efficiency. We estimate that 3D modeling and GPS machine control can increase productivity by up to 50% for some operations and cut survey costs by up to 75%. Reducing downtime of equipment and rework reduces fuel consumption and associated green house gas emissions by some 40%. We’ve run the numbers and we like them.
