Trimble R8s GNSS System

Capture Measurements Fast with GNSS Technology for Construction

Request a Free Demo


Whether your team is performing initial concrete layout, QA/QC on completed work, or a range of other field positioning tasks, GNSS technology is a viable option in many situations. On busy construction sites, contractors find that work can be interrupted when an obstruction lies between the point of measurement and the total station, requiring a new station setup and lost time. With GNSS technology, there is no need to maintain line of sight with the total station. Instead, the contractor only needs a clear view of the sky to capture measurements fast.

​Built for Building Construction

GPS and other Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technologies have played a role in construction for years. Originally developed for land surveyors, workflows were often complex and overwhelming for non-specialists in the building industry. So when Trimble set out to design a GNSS system specifically for general contractors, it had to be simple. The system is controlled by the same software that controls our total stations, Trimble Field Link. So even novice users can be up and running in minutes with guided-workflows designed for building construction.

One Field Software for all Layout and Data Collection

Many contractors already rely on the powerful simplicity of Trimble Field Link software. With task-based workflows that guide field workers step-by-step through common field tasks, Trimble Field Link flattens the learning curve to get your teams up and running fast.

Today, Trimble Field Link is the one field software to use no matter what layout equipment your team needs to use for any situation. Whether it’s a robotic total station, Trimble’s innovative Rapid Positioning System or GNSS, your team can trust Trimble Field Link.
