Asset Management


PILLAR provides advanced technological solutions combined with centuries of practical expertise to minimize risk and maximize the life of infrastructure assets.

We accomplish this by utilizing various methods to locate inventory and evaluate the condition of assets resulting in a global view of conditions based on granular details.

Our experience allows us to mitigate risk by developing custom work plans, budgeting dollars and maintaining the infrastructure to the standards of your rating program.

PILLAR collected inventory and condition assessed all the drainage pipe and structures located along the I-95 corridor (mainline and ramps) in Caroline, Spotsylvania, and Stafford Counties for Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Fredericksburg District Office. PILLAR’s office personnel geo-referenced design plan sheets to obtain the initial GPS position of the structures into a GIS database.

VDOT District 2 Inventory Collection

VDOT District 2 Inventory Collection

PILLAR utilized decades-old plan sheets, LiDAR scanning technology, and crews on the ground with an iPad and InfraTrak to conduct inventory and assess more than 40 asset types on interstates and U.S. highways in the Salem District. Assets inventoried included 4,700 signs, 1,198 guardrail terminals, 1,088 drop inlet catch basins, 828 light poles, 408 pavement messages, and 205 miles of longitudinal guardrail. The Virginia Department of Transportation took this information and used it for the development of its work plans and budgets.

VDOT District 4 Guardrail Scan

VDOT District 4 Guardrail Scan

PILLAR performed mobile LiDAR scan approximately 50 miles of I-95 mainline and corresponding ramps for VDOT in the Richmond District in order to obtain guardrail types and locations for their inventory database. The point cloud was processed using our automatic feature extraction tool creating shape files and data for migration into VDOT’s HMMS system.

VDOT District 8 Mowing Acreage Scan

VDOT District 8 Mowing Acreage Scan

Using mobile LiDAR and our automatic feature extraction tools, we determined Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) Staunton District’s Interstate mowing acreage for all of their mowing scenarios. From paritial to full width and tractor to slope to hand mowing, we calculated the acreages from the post-processed and extracted LiDAR point cloud. We also produced shape files and corresponding GIS attributes identifying each mowing area for VDOT’s database.
