As infrastructure ages, comprehensive asset management of roads, bridges, waterways, dams, levees, and the energy grid grows importance. The American Society of Civil Engineers’ 2021 National Infrastructure Report Card rates the nation’s infrastructure as a C-, and 8% of the bridges are considered structurally deficient.
Geospatial solutions are important to the review of critical infrastructure that supports safe travel on roads and bridges, reliable air transportation, uninterrupted energy from electric grid, integrity of dams and levies, and moving raw water to treatment plants.
Our work addresses critical up-front needs in the planning and design of infrastructure and helps inform our clients, allowing them to be proactive in repair and maintenance.
Applications of geospatial technology to support infrastructure are constantly advancing, and NV5 is at the forefront of technologies such as thermal infrared technology to identify failing bridge decks and combining multiple acquisition platforms to provide improved data accuracy to support our clients and the civil engineering profession.
