Our GIS technical department develops transparent, interdisciplinary solutions for complex environmental issues using highly-specialised computers for geostatistics, geotechnical measurement systems and geographic information systems. Our application focus is on simulations, digital land and groundwater modelling and geographic information systems (GIS).
Field of application: environmental informatics
Environmental informatics makes it possible to calculate and present the effects of construction activities, pollution inputs and temperature changes on the subsoil. Precise cost estimates and increased data transparency provide important support in decision-making with regard to official approval procedures and the commercial performance of construction activities.
GIS: OUR SERVICES
Our environmental computing services include the following:
- Geostatistical calculations and geotechnical monitoring in foundations, such as structural analysis around shoring, settling, etc.
- Groundwater models and models of the spread of pollutants in groundwater
- Simulation of geothermal systems, such as soil probes, exchanger fields and well systems, as well as groundwater retention with construction trenches and in sewer construction
- GIS for gathering, managing and assessing a great deal of environmental information for the economic and ecological optimisation of terrain usage and remediation
- Creation of technical drawings and blueprints, as well as the presentation of geotechnical investigations (drilling, dynamic probing, etc.)
Computer models of geological layers or contamination are created using geostatic methods in order to calculate the volumes of structurally separable soil qualities or the spread of pollutants in the soil, for example. This enables the determination of very precise volumes early on and thus determine costs for safety, construction or disposal activities.
Terrain modelling generates a digital picture of morphological and geological conditions using a large amount of three-dimensional point data.
It is used for the presentation of terrain surfaces, trenching, filling and geological layers in order to achieve a vivid visualisation and as exact as possible a volume determination for planning construction trenches, stockpiles and landfills.
In this way, for example, the volumes of soil qualities which can be structurally separated can be determined in a more precise way, ensuring economically optimal disposal.
Groundwater modelling is about forming an idealised image of real hydrogeological phenomena in order to generate forecasts of the groundwater situation.
For all technical areas, the capture, management and analysis of varied spatial and environmental data is carried out on a project-specific basis using a Geographic Information System (GIS).
All relevant data from a location are combined into one system in the form of a “digital library,” and are presented in images with spatial relationships. Consequently they are easy to follow.
Designs are drafted which are produced within the scope of analyses and planning services.
