A-SPEC

A-SPEC is a common specification for the supply of digital data relating to ‘As Constructed’ infrastructure assets in a GIS ready format and has been developed within a consortium of local and state government agencies, utility organisations and software manufacturers to ensure that the data captured is the correct data.

RM Surveys is a qualified provider of A-SPEC deliverables and can capture information, and output deliverables addressing the collection of different infrastructure types. These include:

  • B-Spec for building assets
  • D-Spec drainage infrastructure
  • O-Spec public open space and recreational assets
  • R-Spec assets within the road reserve
  • S-Spec sewerage/wastewater infrastructure
  • T-Spec optical fibre/telecommunications assets
  • W-Spec water supply infrastructure

Key benefits of A-SPEC include:

  • Enables the client to make better decisions when dealing with their assets through streamlining the processes, collection, receiving and storing asset information. The key benefits of A-SPEC include:
  • Eliminate duplication of effort. Significant duplication of effort exists in the digitising of as constructed information. This duplication exists between the private sector (who capture as constructed information), and council staff (who may digitise that information from paper plans).
  • Improve process efficiency, in the process of accepting and processing lodgements,
  • and in checking existing data against design criteria and/or design plans;
  • Improve customer service to both internal and external customers of asset information.
  • Improve the quality of information held in council systems for audit and financial
  • requirements, as well as operational and business requirements.
  • Increase the efficiency of information access and result in greater customer satisfaction when dealing with inquiries from consultants, developers and prospective residents.
  • Manage assets better to reduce the need for capital works and/or to
  • reduce ongoing maintenance costs.

B-Spec

The B-Spec standard specification (Buildings) was created to enable Local Government, Utilities and Water Authorities around Australia and New Zealand to participate in the use of a single specification when dealing with the creation of new Councils, Utilities and Water Authorities’ assets.

This enables Councils, Utilities and Water Authorities to deal more efficiently with Land Development and Industry Consultants in relation to subdivision developments and capital works programs within their local jurisdiction.

The B-Spec standard specification was developed to streamline the processes undertaken to display all new Building assets within each A-SPEC member’s geographic information systems (GIS) and asset management information systems (AMIS).

A common specification for the supply of digital data for buildings was identified as a major opportunity for the members to achieve efficiency and cost savings in the process of maintaining their corporate GIS and AMIS. Moreover, a common specification shared between Councils, Utilities and Water Authorities would also provide efficiencies to the Land Development and Industry consultants by removing the need to maintain separate processes, standards and software tools for numerous Councils, Utilities and Water Authorities.

The B-Spec standard specification will enable consultants to provide “Survey Enhanced As – Constructed” data with the specific characteristics required as GIS ready data to comply with B-Spec. The framework will consist of specifications for data content enabling data exchange. B-Spec will enable data to be collected and available in a harmonised, interoperable and quality assured way.
