Sensat’s data hosted in their visualisation platform will allow us to create a single source of truth over the next period of time to help us assure the project’s programme when we begin again.

The project

Sensat, on behalf of Morgan Sindall Volker Fitzpatrick JV (MSVF), have been utilising drones to carry out fortnightly site surveys on the Barking Riverside project. The digital model needs to be supplemented with regular progress monitoring and up to date topographical information for assessing earthworks.

The solution

The data has been served to the whole project via Sensat’s software and has been enabling them to take more accurate and regular earthworks quantities (reducing risk and improving cash flow). They have also been using the data to enhance communication both internally with the project teams and externally with their client Transport for London (TfL). They now have 170 users accessing up to date site information remotely, via a browser-based platform.
