This report examines the economic and social benefits of augmented positioning services in the construction sector. It forms part of a suite of reports that include an overview report and eleven sector reports. The construction sector has a need for accurate and reliable positioning data for use in the planning, design, implementation and management of built assets including buildings, bridges, dams, roads and other infrastructure.
The construction industry has been an early adopter of augmented GNSS and the levels of adoption are high compared with other sectors. Precision positioning plays a critical role in the construction sector. It facilitates the efficient flow of data across construction and engineering activities.
Output from the construction sector is estimated to have been between AUD 440 million and AUD 710 million higher in 2012 as a result of the use and application of augmented GNSS in activities such as site surveying and machine guidance. This could rise to between AUD 1,401 million and AUD 2,469 million by 2020 with further adoption of augmented GNSS supported applications and expansion of GNSS services.
