Fulton Hogan is a major construction partner for Australia's national broadband network. Bottlenecked by a slow dial before your dig process, they approached Spatial Partners to develop a single click solution that greatly accelerated the process.
Prior to any construction work, a dig before you build (DBYD) request must be made for each construction site. However, the DBYD service responds only to queries that are very site-specific whereas Fulton Hogan construction crews are working on large areas equivalent to a whole suburb.
Our solution was to create a micro-integration between Fulton Hogan’s GIS and the DBYD service to generate and submit multiple DBYD requests across the entire construction area.
The result was a “single click” solution, freeing up personnel to work on other pressing tasks and, at the same time, providing clear and comprehensive information on existing utility assets across the construction area. As DBYD requests were often on the critical path for construction completion, the elapsed time of the construction work was also compressed.
