Accelerating Highway Analysis, Bidding and Building
DOT's are now providing a wealth of 3D data to contractors. Making it easier than ever to plan and construct projects effectively while reducing risk with significant savings of time and money.
This project spotlight is the upcoming 13.2 mile - 101 Bainville-South project in Roosevelt, MT with bids closing on the 9th of August 2018. Using Gradework4D contractors are able to read in the data in a matter of minutes to visualize and understand what challenges lie ahead well before construction starts.
Exporting to Google Earth you can easily visualize the plan sheets along with the cut and fill required to clearly communicate hauls and balance points. There are 3 significant areas of cut with the greatest being 180 vertical feet from final road surface to the top of where it daylights.
The plan and cross section view shows the scale of the cut for additional planning equipment and scheduling.
With the bid won, use the same data for production planning and send it to your machine control systems to kick-start grading. Give the field crews better on-project insight by putting the geo-located plans in the palm of their hands. Figure volumes in the field by leveraging the same 3D CAD data readily available from the DOT, designers, model builders and surveyors. Capture field progress, measure as-built changes via drone/UAV flights and track machine movements and hauls to monitor progress and efficiency.
AGTEK's dirt simple solutions take the DOT published information and easily make use of it through every phase of construction. And you can depend on our experienced support and training to help get the best results.
