Digital techniques enable us to design the best blast patterns in quarries for maximum efficiency without risk to our people. Intelligent drill rigs reduce the carbon footprint of our drilling operations. Digital data capture ensures right first time, validated site investigation results are provided to our customers quicker than ever before. 4D Digital models enable ratification of geotechnical designs, clash detection and methodology certainty.
