Geospatial Information Management for the Chickamauga Lock Chamber Replacement
« All Publications

The Chickamauga Lock, located on the Tennessee river upstream of Chattanooga, Tennessee, is downstream of 318 miles of navigable waterway used to transport materials to and from industries and government facilities.

The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has contracted Shimmick Construction Co. (Shimmick) to construct a new lock on the site consisting of over 50 monoliths to heights of over 100 feet.

The USACE project specifications require the contractor to develop and maintain an information management system (IMS) for the duration of the project. The IMS serves the project with a three-dimensional geospatial model updated nightly containing current concrete placement data; interactive web tools (including interactive planimetric and profile map viewers), reports (including concrete control and QC charts, and automated weekly progress drawings), and centralized data repositories. A secure dashboard is used by the contractors and owners to access this information.
