Our People Drive Innovation
A new application of an old tool improves quality control.
Using this tool, we can get up to 400 sleeves and embeds set in a single day! That tool is the Robotic Total Station, manufactured by Sokkia. Ten years ago we adopted the tool to help overcome challenges with aggressive schedules; improve our layout accuracy; and to take advantage of utilizing embeds to eliminate drilling and setting drop-in anchors for hanging pipe.
Most recently we used the tool to provide an additional level of quality control for our underground piping system; proving that innovation doesn't have to rely on a new tool or software system. It can be a new application of an old tool.
