Prevost: a family business and trusted partner of large enterprises




« After a demonstration of the RTS 773 Total Robotic Station, I saw the seamless compatibility with TEKLA software that I had not seen elsewhere. The Trimble Robotic Total Station met our business needs and more than exceeded our expectations.”

Why did Prévost choose Trimble?

Prévost decided to invest in order to grow the business and increase its revenue.

The strategy was to find a way to secure and guarantee the correct transcription of plans and projects in the field in order to work on larger buildings. For example, the port of La Cotinière on the island of Oléron, as a subcontractor of VINCI. The project involved a metal building of 10,340m²; the building as a whole is 20,000m² on a 40,000m² platform.  But also to be able to facilitate and make the measurements more reliable.   

Prévost was looking for an easy-to-use robotic station that would be compatible with their modeling software, TEKLA, to facilitate work between the site and the office.
He added, "I use this device every day! It is very practical, the tablet is large, the reading of the layout is of very good quality. The data transmission to the design office flows seamlessly. Measuring with the station is a double time-saver - on the job site and in the office.

What about the future for Prévost?

"This product provides assurance for our clients and guaranteed quality control. After all, we are using the same equipment as our customers. This imposes respect! It adds to the overall quality of our work. "  

"We use the Trimble RTS 773 to run and present our projects easily to our clients. As a family business, we can collaborate well with large companies as a trusted partner. "
