SCCANZ member company Veris and their client SEQ Water have won the Asia Pacific Spatial Excellence Qld Award for Technical Excellence for the Mt Crosby Pumping Station Digital Twin.
The Mt Crosby digital twin showcases a multi-skilled approach from surveyors, engineers and laser scanning specialists within the context of a broader project.
The project utilised multiple capture technologies to overcome a number of physical limitations including tight underground spaces and poor air quality, seamlessly integrated with drone surveys and sub-surface radar to capture a comprehensive digital twin of the Mt Crosby Pumping Station; an important utility for Brisbane’s potable water that required significant refurbishment following the 2011 floods.
The twin has since seen widespread use through renovation, safety training, community engagement, and was pivotal in monitoring the site throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
