MOBA and Highway Data Systems (HDS) have joined forces to offer a complete technology and materials testing service for road builders.
The partnership between MOBA and HDS marks the start of an ongoing research and development programme that will deliver robust systems that will give greater oversight of the paving process. According to the companies, this means that comprehensive data can be automatically gathered during paving operations which can then be incorporated into PMS and BIM systems. UKAS accredited reports can also be generated. The net result is that the client has a greater insight into the construction process whilst also significantly reducing the need for on-site quality control personnel.
MOBA UK’s Managing Director Ian Lewis said: “Our partnership with HDS/MATtest represents a tremendous opportunity for road constructors to benefit from the combination of best-in-class sensing technology and proven reporting and materials testing. What they will also appreciate is that there is no capital expenditure required as the MOBA sensing equipment will be rented out for the duration of the project and thus treated as a service charge.”
Joe Charlesworth, director of Highway Data Systems, added: “The constant feedback we receive from the road building agencies and contractors tells us that by bundling together hardware, software and reporting will now uniquely position MOBA and MATtest as the go-to companies for expert, and cost-efficient, analysis of the entire paving process.”
