Overview
Industrial facilities
From expansions and modernisation to new construction, Hexagon solutions ensure that airport projects are strategically aligned to goals and are delivered on budget and on schedule. Certainly, nobody likes delays at the airport!

Plan phase

Capture an exact digital twin of a site’s existing conditions, features and precise location to facilitate digital design concepts that drive efficiencies and reduce waste throughout the asset lifecycle.

Infrastructure
With accurate positioning and paving control solutions, runways are made to withstand extreme weight and enable smooth takeoffs and landings. Explore Hexagon’s solutions for aviation-related construction projects.

Plan phase

Visualise the site above and below ground, digitally mapping out every detail for the construction phase, including time, materials, estimating, scheduling and cost.

Design phase

Digitally capture all the right distances and volumes that are key to construction performance, with accurate positioning and measurements integrated into the 3D model.

Prepare phase

Ensure that your infrastructure project is set up for success through careful site preparation. Our solutions can help with everything from site evaluation to preparing the machines — from underground utility detection to setting up GNSS corrections — and the effective mobilisation of your team and resources.

Construct phase

Maintain a data-driven approach to orchestrate the entire construction phase, creating a 3D model of productivity and efficiency — with higher quality, fewer reworks and less waste — while layering 4D cost and 5D BIM scheduling data throughout the project.

Operate and maintain phase

Empower asset owners and operators with solutions that go beyond smart infrastructure and provide 24/7 visibility into the operational twin to optimise safety and efficiency throughout all operations and maintenance while extending the life of the infrastructure asset.

Buildings
Hexagon’s solutions for the buildings ecosystem ensure airport-related projects are optimised to reduce rework and meet time and budget plans while protecting human and material resources throughout the life of the asset.

Design phase

Capture an accurate digital reality of a building site’s existing conditions, features and positioning to help digitally design initial concepts that minimise inputs and reduce waste during the project.

Plan phase

Transform your vision and design into a plan of action, digitally mapping out every detail for the construction phase including materials, scheduling and cost.

Operate and maintain phase

Leverage all data from design, plan and build phases, to create a Smart Digital Reality that delivers full transparency to every element of the completed building to optimise operations, maintenance, safety and resiliency.
