Topcon Positioning Systems and SOCOTEC have announced an agreement for Topcon to provide its specialized monitoring technology to SOCOTEC within Europe, for the infrastructure projects applying in France, the Netherlands, Spain, and in the UK.
SOCOTEC is globally recognized as a testing, inspection and certification (TIC) leading company with more than 200,000 clients across 26 countries. The organization will employ Topcon robotic total stations from the MS Measuring Station series and several additional geopositioning portfolio resources.
“SOCOTEC has an impressive reputation as a trusted expert across the building, real estate, infrastructure, and industrial sectors. An ongoing commitment to the integrity, sustainability, and performance of built assets enables the group to support private and public sector clients to strengthen their environmental credentials throughout the lifecycle of their buildings, infrastructure and equipment,” said Ian Stilgoe, vice president of Emerging Business at Topcon.
Topcon monitoring technology will be used on high-profile European projects to survey construction sites and infrastructure for stability and risk. The integrated products comprise total stations, GNSS, and third-party geotechnical sensors, which are powered via Delta Link hardware and monitored, managed, and evaluated via Delta Link software.
“The turnkey solution Topcon provides will offer SOCOTEC complete control and reliability when it comes to surveying projects,” Stilgoe said.
“Being familiar with Topcon technology on the major Grand Paris Express project, for example, the teams know they can trust Topcon to deliver the complete precision and accuracy required on future work. Like Topcon, SOCOTEC is dedicated to excellence to clients, and we’re proud to work with such a reliable and reputed organisation. I have no doubt the agreement signals the start of a future of successful project deliveries,” said Arnaud de Pracomtal, managing director of SOCOTEC Monitoring and SOCOTEC Infrastructure in France.
He added, “For 70 years, SOCOTEC has been dedicated to work for the sustainability of built assets. As a trusted third party, the company relies on 6,000 engineers whom are all engaged to accompany the green and energy transitions, so that the built environment becomes more performant and sustainable in time. With Topcon solutions we are building trust for a safer world.”
