"This project had another first for us," Egerickx noted. "We did no staking for earthworks. Our [sub]contractor, Aertssen, used machine control for the earthworks and Trimble equipment, which mainly uses GNSS. Around buildings where there's not much sky, the small excavators are controlled by total stations. In past projects, when there were small earthworks or rework during construction, we would set stakes, but now Aertssen only wants a digital model. Everything happens so much faster." Johan Egerickx, BAM Contractor Surveyor THE DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT A goal for BAM Contactors, says Balens and Egerickx is to achieve a complete digital environment for their projects. The adoption of the SX10 provides a key link in this desired workflow, complimented by Trimble solutions already in use: "We started with GNSS survey control using the Belgian VRS network," Egerickx said. We used to set up a base, but now we just use the network. It's great. We even use it on machine control. We also do traverses and digital level loops with our Trimble total stations and DiNi levels." Hardware and software modernization doesn't always yield immediate benefits for enterprises, and sometimes taking a particularly big technological leap or risk comes at a premium in time and labor. But sometimes everything goes smoothly– as did this adoption of the SX10 in mid-project. Contact your Trimble Authorized Distribution Partner for more information. © 2018, Trimble Inc.
