GroupBC, Ordnance Survey and PCSG are delighted to announce that their unique BIM / GIS solution, GeoConnect+, has been shortlisted for the Technological Innovation of the Year category.
The LCA’s recognise achievements, developments and innovation within London’s booming construction industry and feature a wide range of categories for solution providers, contractors, architects, developers and local authorities.
Developed over 2 years of research and development in partnership with leading BIM consultants PCSG, and geospatial experts Ordnance Survey, GeoConnect+ bridges the gap between the built asset and its surrounding environment.
Built on GroupBC’s market-leading Common Data Environment which enables BIM Level 2 compliance, and utilising the latest UK maps from Ordnance Survey, projects and assets can be viewed on the map interface, and layered with open datasets showing how they could be affected by flood plains, sites of special scientific interest, archeological sites, local authorities’ boundaries, and many more.
This data has always been available, but only after expensive surveys and site reports, or locked behind corporate firewalls. GeoConnect+ saves organisations valuable time and money by unlocking this data and making it available to any team member with web browser, enabling them to make quicker and more informed decisions.
