The Role of Surveyors in the Evolution of BIM

Building information modelling (BIM) is becoming more commonplace within construction sectors globally, combining technology with improved collaboration to better manage projects and give them the best chance of complying with time and budget constraints. However, the BIM life cycle and efforts to espouse it are almost futile if surveying is taken out of the equation or, more realistically, brought in too late. It can be good to have a structure that is successfully using BIM to be delivered on time and within budget, but if it or any of its components are in the wrong position, the consequences can be...

Trimble TDL 450H Long-range Radio

Trimble has introduced the Trimble TDL 450H radio, a long-range solution in the Trimble TDL 450 radio modem series designed to support high-precision Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) surveying applications. The Trimble TDL 450H is a 2-35 Watt (user programmable) radio transceiver. Its 35W of power maximises range, enabling work in difficult terrain and urban areas. The multi-function user interface streamlines field configuration and troubleshooting so surveyors can maintain maximum productivity. The radio modem allows users to adapt as conditions require: for longer baselines surveyors can dial up the power, and when the work area is smaller, a lower power... (read more)
