Featuring task-based workflows, customizable views and a touch screen interface designed to optimize workflow, Trimble Field Link extends field layout capabilities while simplifying tasks for crews in the field. In addition to the advancements made in performing layout, as built assessment and QA/QC tasks, Trimble Field link adds reporting routines to record and track productivity as well as the ability to document existing site conditions.
A key construct of BIM and VDC is in maintaining a direct link between design intent and construction reality. Trimble Field Link provides users with the latest tools for increasing both productivity and accuracy during the construction layout process to reduce rework and lost time. No matter whether designs are delivered via 3D models or 2D drawings, Trimble Field Link takes control to direct robotic total stations on site and identify the precise location of each point in your project. With proven performance gains of 200% over traditional workflows, Trimble Field Link is transforming the work of construction layout.
Designed to simplify layout for construction professionals, Trimble Field Link makes short-work of layout projects for fast results with the your Robotic Total Station, Rapid Positioning System or GNSS solution.
Whether you need to create points and a plan on the job, or work directly from a 3D model or 2D drawing, Trimble Field Link fits your business and layout style. The software was designed specifically to reduce complexity, so you can feel confident entrusting crews with varying skills to perform automated layout successfully. With proven performance gains of 200% over traditional workflows, Trimble Field Link is transforming the work of construction layout.
Quality assurance routines and as-built data collection is as fast as it is precise. With Trimble Field Link you can produce Layout Deviations, Daily Layout Summaries, and Field Reports. Document daily production as well as existing conditions for RFIs and job reporting. With Trimble VISION available in the Trimble RTS Series total stations, you can control the instrument from the tablet and provide photos directly from the tripod.
Once the points are laid out or collected on the job site, you and your teams can round trip the as-built point data back to the office to compare completed work with the intended design when adjustments are needed.
By using CAD based field point creation solutions as part of your detailing process, you can easily export a design file to import into the Trimble Field Link software. This allows your field crews the ability to easily stake-out points, reducing error and maximizing productivity.
Simplify your field data preparation and review of results. Trimble Field Link Office provides you with a simple tool to create data from a plan, or import 2D and 3D models to then prepare data for field layout. An easy layer management tool helps you manage and visualize the information that is important to you. Once you have prepared data for you field crews you can easily share the common Field Link file either by direct transfer or upload to Trimble Connect for easy access from the job site. After the field crew has laid out or captured data on the jobsite they can then easily share this information with you to the review against the original information. The simplified, common interface between the office and field versions of Trimble Field Link will help you increase both productivity and accuracy of information prepared and captured on your projects.
Easily visualize and then stake-out field points such as wall penetrations, hanger locations, cable tray attachments and stub-up locations within a 3D environment.
Within the Model Viewer feature, easily toggle layer and background controls for increased visibility into problem areas.
By importing a design file into the Trimble Field Link software, field crews can create points on-top of the design file for stakeout.
Trimble Field Link version 4.0 is now available! This exciting new release for our field layout software provides you with a fresh approach both in appearance and updates to the way construction layout is done.
Everyone knows that Building Construction is a tough business. At Trimble, we've been focused on making substantive improvements to workflows with improved collaboration. Effective implementation of round trip workflows (Office to Field to Office) requires connected solutions, coordinated teams, and anytime access. For layout tasks, as-built assessments and structural components, Trimble is streamlining workflows with seamless, real time updates to reduce rework and improve overall team efficiency.
Today Trimble Connect, combined with Trimble office and field solutions, is simplifying the process of connecting teams, coordinating efforts and improving timely access to important project data.
In this edition of Building With Trimble, we'll show that reducing or eliminating manual data transfer is not only feasible today, it's a mandate for many progressive construction firms today. Watch the webinar to see how your round trip workflow might be transformed in the near future.

With the addition of the Trimble R8s to our building construction lineup, contractors can now tap into the convenience of satellite positioning while still using the same proven workflows of Trimble Field Link. When vertical accuracy does not require sub-centimeter tolerance, GNSS technology is the smart way to expedite layout and QA/QC tasks. Unlike existing total station workflows with GNSS, all you need is a clear view of the sky to get the positions you need on site. Eliminate dozens of trips back to the tripod and repeated set-ups and break-downs.
Watch the recorded webinar where we introduce the Trimble R8s and Trimble Field Link software to see if GNSS technology has a place on your job site.
