London-based mobile construction technology developer BaseStone won the award for Best Application of Technology at the Digital Construction Awards 2018 – part of the Digital Construction Week event in London last week – for its work on the Bakerloo Line link at Paddington Station.
The “Best Application of Technology” category provides recognition for companies and projects that effectively utilise specific technology to improve processes and deliver measurable improvements. BaseStone’s nomination for this category cited a 60% productivity gain achieved by BaseStone and long-standing customer, the Costain Skanska Joint Venture (CSJV), for their work on the London Underground Bakerloo Line Link (BLL) project at Paddington Station.
Rivals in the category included a Kier project using Clearbox (post), and an entry by VolkerFitzpatrick and GenieBelt. Familiar technology names in other categories included 3DRepo (post) in the R&D category, and GroupBC for its Sainsbury’s Digital Estate project with retailer Sainsbury’s (discussed at GroupBC’s 2017 user conference), in the digital innovation category.
