Digital layout cuts project time in half for concrete contractor

For Sobcon Concrete, Inc., a fullservice concrete contractor with clients all over Alabama, typical commercial projects once started with strings, tape measures, chalk lines and batter boards. "Our main work is forming and pouring concrete for foundations, retaining walls, columns and elevated slabs," said Head Project Engineer at Sobcon, Josh Hollingshead. "Our crews do all of their own layout." These layouts – most of which are for major commercial projects - can take days to measure and process and are subject to human error and inaccuracies that can potentially cause expensive rework and delays. A Leica Geosystems representative loaned Hollingshead a Leica iCON robot 50 robotic total station and iCON build software to try.
