Keep construction safe

Employers and workers need to create a safe work environment and take an active role in mitigating dangers. The right equipment and methods contribute significantly to this.

From non-contact measurement technology to collision avoidance systems, Leica Geosystems provides the right solutions to keep your project safe. In addition, Leica Geosystems supplies the most advanced real-time and campaign monitoring products to report on the stability of the construction environment and its surroundings.

Keep projects on target

When building roads, issues must be avoided or identified before they become time-consuming and costly. To track project progress and make timely decisions, up-to-date data must flow efficiently between the right stakeholders at the right time in the correct format.

We help you identify issues early. Leica Geosystems solutions allow all stakeholders - surveyors, engineers, foremen, machine operators and even site workers to identify, share and collaborate in good time. Our solutions comply with BIM/IFC standards at every stage of the works.

Avoid waste and rework

Leica Geosystems solutions make engineering challenges more transparent, break complicated sequences into simple step-by-step procedures and provide as-positioned, as-built reporting as you go. All of this is helping make waste and rework a thing of the past on your digital construction project.

Our solutions give you the confidence to accurately stake out the design and provide the checks directly onsite to identify deviations from the design that cause costly rework and complete the final as-built survey in the safest, fastest and most efficient way. We support you with the equipment to deliver the most accurate as-built surveys to ensure construction is according to design and document progress is compliant.

Stake faster, safer and more accurate than ever before


Boost onsite productivity with digital survey workflow

With the easy-to-use Leica Captivate field software, and the road app, alignments can be easily selected and staked out. Staking out highway and road alignments is significantly faster with the Leica TS16 combined with the Leica AP20 AutoPole or the Leica GS18 T. With immersive graphics in the field, progress and quality checks are simple, and productivity is maximised. Surveyors can check the flatness of road surfaces with the Leica Captivate Inspect Surface app included in the MS60 MultiStation. The app compares scanned surfaces with the design using a heat map directly on-site. The latest design data can be directly sent to the field using Leica Infinity and Leica Exchange. GNSS accuracy and quality are ensured using the HxGN SmartNet correction service.

Empower many onsite to conduct stake out and check tasks

For non-surveyors, Leica iCON construction software and sensors provide an intuitive solution to maximise quality and efficiency. Supporting both Leica iCON total stations and Leica iCON Smart Antennas for construction, the field software Leica iCON site offers an easy-to-use solution for staking road alignments and associated features. Ensure the most up-to-date design files are used by sending them directly to users on site with Leica Infinity and Leica ConX. For the highest productivity, Leica iCON total stations can be combined with the Leica AP20 AutoPole for stake out tasks.

Powerful two-person operation in road and highway construction

For construction projects that benefit from enough personnel to allow two-person operation, Leica FlexLine and Leica iCON manual total stations can be deployed. Stake out and checking can be performed with the powerful Leica Captivate software, and the road app, the familiar FlexField software, and the intuitive Leica iCON site software for non-surveyors. With the unique AutoHeight functionality time can be saved and errors eliminated when measuring instrument height.

Boost productivity and safety onsite with Leica Geosystems custom built solutions


Machine control solutions to increase productivity

Implementing machine control technology enables construction efficiencies. Leica Geosystems offers a complete portfolio of machine control solutions. With a single control unit, the Leica MCP80, and a common software platform, Leica MC1, and Leica ConX, accuracy and speed is increased even for inexperienced machine operators. The single software and panel solution allows complete flexibility for deployment across a wide range of machine types and brands. Consistency in software design throughout all heavy machine control applications reduces training efforts and optimises new employee onboarding.

Change the way you collect and report data onsite with Leica Laser Scanning solutions

3D laser scanning improves how site information is collected and changes are reported. It reduces operational costs with less crew and downtime on the site. Create a highly-accurate digital twin of the construction site with Leica Geosystems 3D laser scanners and Cyclone FIELD 360 app. Quickly post-process and analyse the point cloud data with Cyclone REGISTER 360, Cyclone 3DR, or Leica Infinity for auto-extracting ground to create TIN, volume calculations, or creating cross-section reports. Easily share digital reality data directly with stakeholders using Leica TruView Cloud.

Raise worker awareness and help prevent accidents onsite

Leica Geosystems real-time Safety Awareness Solutions increase worker safety awareness and visibility between workers and machine operators to prevent machine-to-people, machine-to-machine, and machine-to-objects collisions.

Manage project risks for better safety with scalable monitoring solutions


Increase safety onsite and keep investments low with campaign monitoring

Construction can be dangerous, and keeping people and assets safe is critical. Through Leica Geosystems monitoring solutions, movements on and around a site can be detected, and precautionary actions can be initiated. When risks are low, campaign monitoring will suffice, with measurements conducted with existing equipment ensuring small investments.

Improve efficiency and minimise errors with semi-automated monitoring

When higher risk is expected in construction, people and assets can be kept safe with semi-automated monitoring. Using a total station, Leica TPS monitoring onboard app and Leica GeoMoS monitoring service, measurements and analysis are conducted automatically. Results can be visualised and reported online to speed up the process to ensure any movements are quickly identified and actions are taken to keep all safe.

Enhance safety with real-time monitoring

For complete peace of mind, deploy Leica Geosystems real-time monitoring solutions. For projects where the likelihood of structural movements is high, real-time monitoring is the right choice. Many points can be identified and automatically measured in cycles 24/7 and instantly checked to ascertain if movements have occurred. Real-time notifications are issued, and experts can immediately decide to evacuate areas at risk. Keep your construction site and surroundings safe with Leica Geosystems monitoring solutions.

Innovate and advance as-built verification


Boost productivity and decide onsite

All phases of highway and road construction need to be checked before proceeding because any undetected deviations from design become increasingly expensive as the project proceeds. With the easy-to-use Leica Captivate field software, and the road app, alignments can be easily selected and checked. With immersive graphics in the field, progress and quality checks are simple, and productivity is maximised. Performing checks with the Leica GS18 T and the Leica TS16 combined with the Leica AP20 AutoPole is significantly faster than traditional techniques. The latest design data can be directly sent to the field using Leica Infinity and Leica Exchange. GNSS accuracy and quality are ensured using the HxGN SmartNet correction service.
