“The current acceleration of BIM implementation combined with the necessity for easy-to-use precise positioning solutions that the LN-100 offers, made the Topcon choice a clear winner,” said Ian Stilgoe, director of geomatics for Topcon. “The unique features such as self-leveling, seamless data workflow from design to the field and simplicity of operation were obvious user benefits.
“By removing the unnecessary and to some ‘intimidating’ features of a robotic total station, the LN-100 delivers an ideal dedicated instrument reducing the learning curve for layout and quality control measurement tasks,” said Stilgoe.
This is the third year the Wichmann Innovation Award has been bestowed. “I look forward to next year’s competition where we will once again demonstrate how Topcon innovative solutions improve productivity and quality of its customers projects,” said Stilgoe.
