Fugro has signed an agreement with TRL (Transport Research Laboratory) to merge data collection and asset management expertise for highways clients worldwide.

In teaming up, Fugro and TRL will be well placed to deliver an enhanced range of specialist services, efficiently integrated to maximise value for the asset management programmes of government departments and highways authorities. Clients will have access to asset management proficiency and surveying capabilities tailored for medium to large projects anywhere in the world, regardless of project complexity and logistical challenges.

Fugro is a global leader in the acquisition, interpretation and processing of data on highway condition and construction, with a well-established international network of personnel and resources. The company operates a comprehensive fleet of ground and aerial survey systems for scanning, mapping and investigating highways assets.

TRL is a world-renowned authority on the monitoring, testing and performance of pavement materials and on maintenance solutions for wide-ranging types of road construction. As a centre of road research excellence, its knowledge has helped establish standards in road performance and assessment for UK and national transport networks around the world.

Although not exclusive, the agreement will allow the two specialists to deliver dynamic and efficient asset management solutions tailored to highway networks throughout the asset life-cycle and with different technical challenges.

Mark Thomas, business development manager for infrastructure at Fugro Aperio, said: “We are excited about the ability to offer clients a more complete range of services through this agreement with TRL. With a unique combination of survey know-how and consulting expertise delivered through a network of offices in 50 countries, it’s a partnership that I believe enables us to offer something special to highway managers wherever they are in the world.”

Steve Isaacs, associate director at TRL, added: “As individual companies we have a strong presence in the market; as a team we are second to none. Our constant research and delivery of innovation will keep us at the forefront of developments in our field and provide a service that clients can be confident is informed best practice.”

Fugro’s pavement services also include field and laboratory resources for geotechnical investigations and construction materials testing and monitoring. TRL is an acknowledged expert in management methods and tools for monitoring assets, assessing their performance and achieving best value for clients.
