Digitalisation enables efficient port, canal and marine infrastructure project planning, construction and maintenance. Explore Hexagon’s easy-to-use machine control and accurate positioning solutions for waterway 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.

Hexagon’s solutions for the buildings ecosystem ensure port and canal 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 data from design, plan and build phases to optimize operations, maintenance, safety, and resilience.

Cities and nations
Hexagon’s solutions for cities and nations enable governments, industry and citizens to work together to build safe and vibrant communities that promise the highest quality of life and sustainable economic vitality.

Industrial and commercial resiliency
