Building construction positioning solutions that take productivity to a new level - Layout Pro construction positioning solutions give contractors more control of job sites, allowing significant improvements in construction accuracy and productivity. Layout Pro Field software lets you carry, manage, work with, and lay out your site using total station for positions and distance measurements. Layout Pro Office software is designed for the contractor using Layout Pro Field software for layout applications, and is the ideal companion for anyone working with large or complex drawings.

Layout Pro provides the tools needed to complete your layout work faster and with more accuracy than ever before. Combined with a Spectra Geospatial or Nikon mechanical total station, you can layout an entire site from one setup in a fraction of the time as it would take with string lines and tape measures. Layout Pro with the FOCUS 35 robotic total station will do the job even faster and only requires one person.

Key features of Layout Pro Field:

  • Simple methods for quickly and easily entering a building plan straight from the blueprint

  • Check designs with built-in tools such as area computations and distance checks

  • Setup using just two known points on the site and start laying out points

  • Clear, usable map screens

  • Simple calculation tools

  • Works onboard or with a data collector​

Key features of Layout Pro Office:

  • Graphical user interface provides direct access to common functions for a shorter learning curve and minimal self-training

  • Standard view controls offer a common user interface designed for anyone with limited understanding of CAD for fast, easy operation

  • Multiple point selection in Individual, Window, and Current view point selection techniques give you maximum control to select points

  • Enter Plan and information in the office. Check the work with COGO (coordinate geometry) functionality before going to the field

  • Supports importing AutoCAD DWG and DXF files for creating layout points. Do the entire file at once, select a single layer, or select individual lines to create points

  • Import and export text files that contain a list of points and coordinates for use in other programs

  • Take CAD designs and data into the field.

  • Lay out complex concrete forms or anchor bolts from any location by referencing any two known points.

  • Lay out control points and offset hubs faster and more cost-effectively work on your schedule.

  • Lay out all lines from one reference location with no string lines, transits or theodolites.

  • Make minor adjustments to the building position as needed without waiting or paying subcontractor fees.

  • Check the work of others and create documentation for change orders when necessary. Reflectorless measurement capabilities make as-built checks a one-person job.

  • Lay out control lines for subcontractors faster and more accurately than with tapes and theodolites.

  • Easily collect topographical data and import it into third-party software for elevation and cut and fill analysis
