TranSystems has announced a new partnership with Seattle-based software company Pavia Systems to use HeadLight, a project inspection system that will be available to regional construction projects nationwide.


The national transportation consultant has also added Tim Rock back to its staff as regional vice president for TranSystems’ Southeast region, which includes 10 offices in five states.

Rock previously held several roles at TranSystems for 16 years, including rail team leader, director of operations and regional vice president for the company’s Midwest region. Representatives say his strongest assets include in-depth rail expertise and robust knowledge of operations and business development.

“We are pleased to have Tim rejoin the company, bringing his expertise to the Southeast region,” President and Chief Operating Officer Paul Malir said. “TranSystems chooses its leaders based on their demonstrated ability to bring solutions to our clients, on their deep underlying technical understanding and on their talent for building and leading teams. Tim excels in all three.”

TranSystems says its partnership with Pavia Systems will enable its clients to conduct more efficient inspections and uphold higher quality risk management solutions when using HeadLight. The software system allows construction project inspectors to gather real-time data, including photo and video, while tracking field crews and equipment in the field. Project inspectors will now be able to upload reference files using the software and flag dangerous areas on-site in real-time.

“We are proud to partner with Pavia Systems, and we believe this integration is a perfect fit for clients seeking a streamlined approach to construction,” said Principal and Senior Vice President Tony Albert. “With our projects spanning across the nation and across the entire transportation spectrum, efficient construction inspection technology is important, and we are at the forefront providing project owners the best solution possible.”

Si Katara, president and co-founder of Pavia Systems, says the company is “thrilled” to work with TranSystems.

“We believe embracing technology adoption will transform the capabilities of the transportation industry, and we commend TranSystems for being one of the leaders amongst their peers to do so,” Katara said.
