Trimble Robotic Total Stations – Construction Layout Tips

Save time and effort on your construction layouts with the leading solutions from Trimble.

Setting Up a Trimble Robotic Total Station

Ensure accuracy of your construction layout with your Total Station. Setting up on a known point from Survey Control provides the maximum level of accuracy.  However, Survey Control is not always close to your work area, so for points that do not need hyper accuracy you may create local control by setting up off of three known points on the project.

Using Trimble Robotic Stations for General Contractors

Suitable for general contracting, field layout technology gives superintendents the ability to quickly and easily verify concrete slabs pre- and post-pour, verify slab reference points and penetrations and electronically mark various features such as water, electrical and sewer positions with digital As-Built positions.

Understanding Trimble Field Points

Project Managers or BIM Managers can create points in either 2D or 3D from the office. These points then can be transmitted to the field engineer via the web, an FTP site or as a data file for fast and accurate layout, providing an increased level of project control.

Benefits of Using Trimble Robotic Total Stations

You don’t need a surveying background to guarantee the precision and accuracy of your construction layout. A Trimble Robotic Total Station is designed for straightforward-yet-exact construction layout with simple office-to-field communication, coupled with the functionality of a surveyor’s tool.
