Growth Drives Aquamain to Upgrade Technology
Aquamain are based in Shepton Mallet in Somerset and provide water mains installs, water maintenance (including pipe servicing and lead replacement) and commissioning works including swabbing pressure testing and certification.
Covering areas from Birmingham to Wales to the South East and everywhere in between, Aquamain has been a loyal customer to MGISS for over 4 years. Due to recent growth and success, business drivers have invested in upgraded technology to pinpoint water assets including pipe line surveys and manhole covers.
Aquamain required a fully integrated end to end solution to capture field-based data quickly and accurately whilst been able to send data back to the office for geo-reference and management of assets and location.
Working with MGISS, Aquamain looked at various options to upgrade to deciding on the Spectra Precision SP60 GNSSreceiver to ascertain 1cm accuracy, running GeoGrafi-M software on a MobileMapper 50 rugged handheld device.
MGISS has developed a bespoke solution fitting the requirements of the Aquamain. This consisted of creating different form types fitting the specifications for different utility companies and local authorities.
MGISS delivered the hardware and software training to the Aquamain commissions team ensuring the end to end work flow was fully operational and straightforward to use, whilst maximising efficiencies in saving time and guaranteeing location accuracy back to the water companies, developers and local authorities.
