See how Octavius Infrastructure used drone data to accurately monitor progress along the A46 remotely, reducing turnaround time by 5 weeks

Highway

The project

As part of the government’s £15.2bn road investment strategy, National Highways are developing a scheme which will require Octavius Infrastructure to improve the junctions along the A46 in Coventry. To support the project, Octavius Infrastructure needs a highly accurate digital model of the site as a way of remotely monitoring progress and capturing data. The model needs to be supplemented with monthly drone scan updates.

The solution

Utilising fixed-wing drones, Sensat safely captured the required data in 2 hours without implementing traffic management systems or road closures. The collected data is hosted on Sensat’s cloud-based visualisation platform. Stakeholders are now able to access the site remotely, from anywhere in the world on any device. Through Sensat, teams can now also visually combine different data sets in their real-world environment to accurately track and monitor progress.

Sensat are a real game-changer. It has aided our visual clash detection and planning, significantly reducing the time taken in the process. It has also made tying our survey and design data together a breeze
-Ian Holden, Head of Construction at Octavius Infrastructure
