“According to recent HP data, construction employees said almost a fifth of their projects have major layout errors leading to significant reworks, with delays of over 15 days, on average. The cost of these reworks amounts to a significant proportion of a project’s profit margin,” said Xavi Juarez, director, HP Construction Services. “There is clear demand in the industry for new productivity-boosting technology, with 66% of the workers we surveyed wanting layout tasks automated. HP’s collaboration with Topcon will help deliver our autonomous SitePrint solution throughout the U.S., allowing firms to achieve up to ten times the productivity of manual layout techniques, reducing the occurrence of costly reworks.”
The LN-150 has a one-button, self-leveling setup, Wi-Fi and long-range Bluetooth communication options, and works with nearly all popular cloud-based workflows. Offering contractors precise 3D layout capabilities, it is designed to help increase productivity, accuracy, and provide a substantial return on investment (ROI) over traditional, manual methods, which is of growing importance with labor shortages.
“HP SitePrint, paired with the unique simplicity and ease-of-use of the LN-150, makes this an ideal combination for MEP contractors and other professionals working in the building construction trades,” said Mark Contino, vice president of North American retail distribution, Topcon. “We are excited to work with HP to help bring it to the U.S. market. This is the type of forward-thinking integration — the pairing of the Layout Navigator with the new SitePrint tool — that we welcome in our pursuit of providing state-of-the-art, advanced solutions to our customers. The combination allows a contractor to progress from paper plans and measuring tape to a completely digital workflow in no time at all.”
