Benchmark Surveys has a strong background in Machine Control and provides comprehensive surveying solutions across a board range of sectors including mining, construction and residential. We can assist with site setup, machine build files for all brand Topcon, Leica and Trimble. We also have several base stations and Total Station for hire for LPS and TPS machine control.
Machine Control is the safest method of earthworks. By using Machine Control, you are removing the requirement of Surveyors walking the site and marking design grades. The main benefit of using machine control data is to manage and deliver an increasing amount of spatial data in a streamlined process. The tech allows operators to use their machinery in unison with digital plans ensuring that construction tasks are performed and delivered on time and accurately.
Machinery that the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) can be installed on include Dozers, Grader and Excavators. By implementing a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) survey network with a data management system on your site, can make sure machinery has the correct data model files, whilst maintaining the integrity of the local positioning system. This will ensure all machines are working together off the same single data source.
Machine Control deliverables:
- Site audits
- Provide site GNSS base-stations
- Provide training for operators onsite or prior to getting onto site. This will help with the transition to a new site and allow machines to go straight to work when mobilized to site.
- Can work with existing conditions ‘as-built’ surveys
