GeoMax assist Pell Frischmann engineering to monitor Midland Metro tram network extension project

The Wednesbury to Brierley Hill extension to the Midland Metro tram network will play a significant role in the regeneration and economic growth for the West Midlands, and GeoMax’s Zoom90 robotic total station with X-PAD monitoring software is playing a role.

Pell Frischmann, an international, multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy with over 90 years of experience in the built environment, has been using our equipment to monitor the track during the installation of piling at Delta Junction – a project that has been running since July 2021.

“Having been introduced to GeoMax software a few months before, I knew that the user-friendly software would provide all that I needed,” says James Bedingfield, principal surveyor at Pell Frischmann.

“The X-PAD software is simple to use and gives multiple avenues to output the data,” he continues. “By using a few simple in-house routines, we created bespoke automated daily reports which met the client’s needs. The Zoom90 has also been very reliable.”

Working with GeoMax

Pell Frischmann is now planning to purchase a further Zoom90 and GNSS receiver, adding to their fleet of kit to be used on future monitoring jobs.

“The outstanding performance and reliability, along with its easy-to-use software, has proven that GeoMax’s Zoom90 with monitoring package is an excellent choice,” says James.

“We have also been impressed by the excellent support service that Survey Hire UK team have provided throughout the time the instrument has been on site.”

Substantially minimising the time of any survey task, the GeoMax Zoom90 is the ultimate one-man system with significantly increased automation performance and seamless sensor fusion.

Pell Frischmann chose to complement their Zoom90 for the Delta Junction project with X-PAD Ultimate Survey software, which combines data collection from all GeoMax instruments and provides complete features, data integration, scalability and the latest technology – covering all surveying needs in the field.
