Mott MacDonald has launched Moata Land Management, a digital solution that enhances the management of surveys, stakeholder relationships and land access on infrastructure projects.
Developed in response to the increasingly disparate processes and sources that can undermine good stakeholder engagement and intelligence, Moata Land Management acts as a single source of truth, helping clients improve their land referencing, customer relationships, survey management and land access instantly.
It allows data to be visualised through both geographic information system (GIS) or tabular views, creating efficiencies and reducing risks by building a comprehensive single repository of intelligence for all engagements in a secure, intuitive and easily assessable digital solution.
Moata Land Management provides full control over land stakeholder management duties, where landowner records can be analysed and managed, with notices, drawings and visualisations generated in real-time. Parcels of land can be selected and interrogated, to schedule or action any land access, referencing or surveying activities. It is currently in use on major projects including HS2 where the successful production and serving of high volumes of statutory notices has drastically accelerated programme completion and reduced risks to future stages of the project.
All land referencing data is captured in a clear and transparent audit trail, allowing the history of a piece of land to be understood, from initial title capture, through landowner contact and consultation, to the final acquisition of the land.
The benefits of Moata Land Management include up to an 80% saving of overhead costs associated with land interest questionnaires, automated production including GIS plans, and improved site visit planning and prioritisation capabilities. It can reduce by 30% the cost associated with land management, and increase accuracy of surveys by up to 50%, driving significant cost and programme efficiencies on projects.
Brian Heller, head of Moata Land Management said: “We are able to reduce repetitive work to speed up delivery, reducing the number of abortive surveys by up to 20%, with less project waste and better results. It also delivers a better customer experience by improving stakeholder relationships throughout a project’s lifecycle, which is increasingly important to clients such as Highways England and Anglian Water. Through clever data management we can improve data accuracy and reduce the time it takes to complete results from months to weeks, speeding up project delivery.”
