    Like all industries, the construction industry is constantly evolving. 

    Digital Construction Sites

    Many construction companies realise the need for greater productivity on work sites when excavating, grading, dredging and piling. Introducing machine control to construction sites can not only save costs but can massively improve Health and Safety on the jobsite.

    High Precision Grading

    The high-precision saves time, over digging and backfill material costs.

    Operators are able to work faster for longer with a greatly improved accuracy meaning operators and machines are needed on site for less time.

    Machine Control Hire

    We provide guidance systems for any make and model of heavy construction equipment

    As well as providing factory fitted intelligent control machines, we also offer the latest guidance systems from Leica Geosystems and Topcon. Construction machines include:

    • Excavators
    • Bulldozers
    • Graders
    • Compactors
    • Backhoes

    The guidance systems can be supplied and fitted to our machines or your own.

    GNSS Equipment

    Base stations and survey rovers are a key requirement on digital job sites.

    We can supply the latest GNSS equipment technology from leading names in this field including Leica Geosystems & Topcon to work alongside your own equipment and suit your business requirements. 

    We provide:

    • Base Station Rental
    • Rover Rental
    • VRS Subscriptions

    We also offer a technical support desk to offer remote connectivity support as standard. 

    Jobsite Setup

    Before any machine control project starts, the appropriate GNSS base equipment must be installed and set up precisely.

    Mistakes are easy to make, hard to detect and compromise efficiencies throughout the entire project.

    We can set up your entire job site or support with specific jobs such as:

    • Setup of base station
    • Site Localisation
    • Establishing Site Reference Points

    We provide state of the art equipment installed by trained engineers.


    3D Data

    For the machine control system to have accurate information to work with, the site plans must first be prepared in a format that the machine’s computer can understand.

    In order for the bucket or blade to respond accurately, sensors on the machinery communicate with the onboard computer, which is loaded with a 3D model of the project.

    We offer a comprehensive 3D data design service to ensure the correct data is used to and from all the machines involved throughout your project.

    Terrain Mapping

    Drones are fast becoming an essential tool for digital surveying of construction site terrain.

    Aerial insights can drastically improve progress tracking and help spot problems early – before they become very costly or add many weeks or months to a project’s timeline.

    We can arrange complete drone surveys. These can be done throughout the project lifecycle, supporting any requirements for volumetric data.

    Machine Control Training

    We can provide training courses for both beginners or professionals wanting a refresh.

    Courses can be structured modules or tailored to your specific requirements and instructors are available by appointment to train groups or individuals at a location of your choice.

    Courses provided in:

    • Machine Control
    • Surveying
    • Software
