Find out how we are shaping the future at GEO Business 2019

We’re busy gearing up for GEO Business in London on 21-22 May – our industry’s number one event for everyone involved in the gathering, storing, processing and delivery of geospatial information.


The theme of this year’s show is “shaping the future” and we are excited to be able to share our plans and vision through two free to attend seminars and a workshop. Our Murphy Surveys UK team will also be on Stand G5 at the Business Design Centre to demonstrate how we are putting our ideas and innovation into action, from BIM and digital engineering to monitoring, laser scanning, subsurface mapping and much more.


Murphy Surveys Development Director Colin Murphy comments:

“Our vision is to deliver geospatial certainty to our clients across the project lifecycle, from planning and strategy through to design, construction and in-use. Innovation is an important element of the work we do, and so we welcome the emergence of disruptive technologies which are pushing the boundaries of what can be developed as we see the concept of smart cities, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles and photorealistic animation become reality. We look forward to showcasing our work at the show and catching up with our industry friends and colleagues.”


Here’s what the Murphy Surveys representatives have in store during the event:


Seminar: Implementing BIM into existing infrastructure for an autonomous vehicle future

Enzo Labrosciano, Head of BIM
Day 1: 09:55 – Room A


This presentation will look at creating a model of existing infrastructure using Uniclass 2015 naming to develop a digital twin for test bedding how existing roads, signage, power and services can be utilised, and adapted to facilitate autonomous vehicles.


With emphasis on developing a model accurate to 10mm for all existing service, Enzo will look at the software and capture challenges from a survey point of view and how this could be developed in a larger scale digital twin and survey guidance.


Workshop: Tackling complex urban regeneration and uncovering a lost network of underground waterways

Matthieu Marsault, Laser Scanning Manager
Day 2: 10:15 – Theatre 1


When working with complex multifaced sites featuring demolition, new construction, refurbishment of listed buildings and a working canal side in a prime city centre location, geospatial certainty is critical. Find out how the Murphy Surveys team tackled all the survey components of a large urban regeneration project in central Manchester, Kampus, that resulted in finding a lost underground network of 18th Century waterways.


Seminar: Taking the pulse of the UK bridge network

Matthias Gropp, Head of Monitoring
Day 2: 14:25 – Theatre 1


Road, rail and foot bridges form a critical part of our public infrastructure, but how much do we know about what’s underneath the surface and how do we identify strains and their impact? Increasing traffic loads, construction work, environmental conditions and general wear and tear all play their part in altering the structural performance of a bridge. This session will support bridge engineers with the capture and analysis of data for bridge inspections, structural monitoring and concrete and enforcement mapping.
