Dataforensics and Keynetix Forge Partner Alliance to Revolutionize Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Data Management

Dataforensics and Keynetix Announce Major Partnership

Norcross, Georgia, December 2014 – Dataforensics and Keynetix announce a partnership that teams the strengths of each company to revolutionize geotechnical data collection and data management within the United States and Canada. Dataforensics is developing a specialized configuration of HoleBASE SI for the North American market, which when combined with pLog Tablet, provides greater alternatives for managing geotechnical data for users of pLog Tablet, which already integrates with gINT and LogPlot.

The Case for BIM in Geotechnical Data

Incorporating geotechnical data in BIM allows considered design optioneering and refinement at the outset of a project; minimises geotechnical risk in construction and enables cost-effective repairs and maintenance of assets throughout the project’s lifetime. Image courtesy of Mott MacDonald.

Getting the Message Across

Applying Building Information Modelling principles to geotechnical data will reinforce the message that geotechnics is an integral part of every phase of a project – not just site investigation, argues Gary Morin, Technical Director, Keynetix.

[Editor] In this contributed article, Gary describes the justification for using BIM for geotechnical data.  Among those benefits are the ability to perform detailed alternatives analysis and optioneering, reduction of risk during construction, and the ability to perform cost-effective repairs and maintenance during the lifetime of the geotechnical asset.
