Case study overview

"We halved the time it normally takes to hand plans back to the client for approval—what took us 6 weeks using Sensat typically has taken 3 months to complete."

Sean Coleman Innovation & Quality Manager at Octavius Infrastructure.

Challenges faced

An embankment slippage, caused by the natural movement of earth, risked infringing on the UK’s busiest orbital motorway. To correct the issue, Octavius was given a standard unfinished design by the contractor. The team needed to complete these designs and make a swift start to the programme works due to the imminent bird nesting season. Which limited the timeframe to cut down vegetation. Missing this window would cause several months of delay.

  • Accurate earthworks measurement
  • Minimised night shifts and disruption
  • Faster stakeholder approvals
  • Identifying traffic management sharing opportunities
