August 24, 2023

London, UK - August 24, 2023: Sensat, the leading visualisation and collaboration software company for civil infrastructure, is delighted to announce its double shortlisting for the upcoming TechFest Awards. The company's innovative collaborations with esteemed partners Octavius and Connect Plus for the M25 project, as well as the Mace Dragados joint venture for the HS2 Euston project, have earned finalist positions in two prominent categories: "Best Use of Technology: Smart Data Collection for Asset Management" and "Best Use of Technology: Smart Data Collection in Construction" respectively.

The partnerships have been instrumental in developing and managing some of the UK's most significant infrastructure projects. Leveraging Sensat's cutting-edge platform, teams on the M25 and HS2 Euston Station projects have created site visualisations that transform decision-making in the industry.

James Dean, Sensat CEO, expressed his enthusiasm for the recognition, stating, "Our partnerships with Octavius, Connect Plus, and Mace Dragados joint venture are pushing the boundaries of technological innovation in the infrastructure sector. The ability to capture, visualise, and make decisions from vast amounts of data has empowered project teams to make informed decisions and drive efficiencies. It's gratifying to witness the impact of our technology across these monumental projects."

Together the partnerships in both the M25 and HS2 Euston Station projects have exemplified an exceptional commitment to innovation and efficiency, setting new standards for the industry. By harnessing the power of the Sensat platform, teams have been able to minimise risks, reduce site visits, and optimise asset management strategies. This not only enhances safety but also elevates project performance.

The TechFest Awards organised by NCE and sister publication Construction News, celebrate achievements in effective use of technology in engineering and infrastructure. Sensat's dual shortlisting is a testament to its dedication to shaping the future of infrastructure through smart data collection and analysis.

Sensat looks forward to the TechFest Awards ceremony in November where winners will be unveiled in London.
