ESTA joins over 42 local authorities and agencies across three states of Australia, including the Western Australian Local Government Authority (WALGA) in supporting this initiative. The system, which is called A-Spec, also can help Councils maintain and manage these assets in  existing built-up areas.  ESTA’s contribution has been the inclusion of the Emergency marker requirements within the OSpec module. A Melbourne company, GISSA International, is coordinating the push to have the standardised
approach adopted nationally. “When a subdivision is finished, Councils become responsible for underground assets such as drain pipes and telecommunication conduits,” George Havakis, managing director of GISSA International said.

“It’s a major and costly task to manage and maintain this underground network of public assets. “So it makes good sense to have a standardized industry-wide approach which requires land  developers to provide the ‘as constructed’ data in a digital format which can be incorporated directly into each Council’s Geospatial Information system (GIS) and Asset Management systems (AMS).

“At present, at the end of the subdivision work, councils are handed a hard copy of the asconstructed infrastructure plans, together with a digital copy of the plans in a variety of file formats. “In addition, what often happens in practice is that the as-constructed works on the ground deviate  from the approved engineering plans for various reasons.
