Design and Engineering

Architects, engineers, and designers combine CAD and BIM workflows with location intelligence to get a complete understanding of the surrounding environment and inform design and civil engineering decisions. Adding context and combining above- and below-ground information help construction project teams develop better solutions. Roads, bridges, and building project details can easily be shared and communicated with owners, builders, and stakeholders to achieve project deliverables and outcomes.


Permitting and preliminary design

Organize information to make those first big design decisions. Get through permitting more easily with information organized for analysis and decision-making.

As-built workflows

Collect data on existing conditions of the site, building, or remediation work. Mobile technology, connected to a GIS platform, allows for productivity in as-built workflows.

Collaborative design reviews

With the team or with the client or larger groups, GIS is a great tool for sharing, collaborating, and informing stakeholders on design progress. 

Jobsite and mobile workflows

Simplified collection and analysis of data on conditions throughout the project inform the engineers making critical decisions, which will have an impact for years.
