Trimble’s Field Link for structures

Trimble’s Field Link for Structures software is able to utilise a CAD or BIM file to provide site set out information. For instance corners, columns, anchor bolts and other important set out information can be transferred from the BIM to site. The technology utilises state of the art surveying equipment plus and PC style tablet that shows the layout of the building onscreen, and then when moving around onsite, it shows when you are on a given point including level of set out accuracy and other related data.

Benefits

Very useful technology as timber construction moves from mainly dealing with small scale residential construction, to larger scale buildings.

Limitations

The cost and internal setup requirements of such technology requires regular usage to repay itself.
