Latest Equipment & Proven Techniques

We manage high-accuracy placement of infrastructure and buildings using Leica Total Stations, Global Positioning Systems (GPS), proven processes, and stringent checking procedures.

We generate XYZ data from the client’s design, which is then loaded into the Total Station or GPS. Our surveyors then place points to the specified accuracy using pegs, flags or nails, as appropriate. We use Real Time Kinematic (RTK), GPS and Robotic Total Stations when placing points to ensure optimal results.

We use in-house QA procedures check and verify work carried out by surveyors in line with ISO standards.

Ensure positional accuracy as the elements of design and build come together in a construction project.
