“The orthophoto survey undertaken by Murphy Surveys has proven to be a highly valuable asset to both the design team and the client. The design team have an accurate and detailed base map of a large area to inform the design process, while the client has the long-term benefit of an up-to-date background for their numerous GIS databases and for future planning and design.
The surveys were carried out in an efficient and professional manner and the outputs were delivered on time and to our specification. I would not hesitate to recommend Murphy Surveys to anybody seeking high quality surveys.”
Brian Burke, Senior Engineer, Arup

Due to the proximity of the Luas lines to the double basement excavation, a detailed methodology and monitoring proposal was required. Shane and his team developed a methodology and carried out AMS track monitoring, precise level surveying, inclinometer readings and vibration monitoring during the course of our works. Murphy Surveys completed this work to a high standard from start to finish and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”

“Murphy Surveys joined The Greater West when ABC identified the need to provide accurate delivery of as-built foundation data to designers. Murphy’s were initially brought in to overcome staff shortages, though after receipt of initial data, ABC recognised the quality of their work. Working together, ABC and Murphy’s established quality assurance standards and processes for Murphy’s to complete prior to data delivery.
To support the increasing levels of as-built data that were being received, a system was developed to verify the information with on the fly quality assurance. Thanks to Murphy’s early engagement and technical input in the development of this system, it was very successful.
Murphy’s surpassed ABC’s expectations with their attention to detail and comprehensive approach in their quality assurance document, which they developed to support their quality checks. This gave ABC great confidence in their delivery.
Murphy’s exemplary service did not stop at engineering delivery, their operations management was superior to other survey contractors on the project. Murphy’s proactive approach to sharing progress and their initiatives for planning works influenced wider communications across the project team and meant all parties were always in sync.”
Philip Pitman, Data Acquisition Manager, ABC Electrification

“I used Murphy Surveys to map a recent farm purchase (77 acres) in advance of closing the transaction in November 2014. My previous experience was that land purchases frequently threw up issues in subsequent years. Their resolution typically cost both time and legal fees and that was where resolutions were amicable!
The Murphy survey (carried out in the field, digitally, as opposed to in an office) identified a number of anomalies which needed to be resolved, including where the right of way was on the map (as opposed to its physical location). While the difference may appear small to the casual observer, in reality, it could become an issue at any stage through the generations. I believe all parties (seller, buyer and other stakeholders on the roadway) are better off for having had the work carried out. Post mapping, there is a greater level of certainty over where the boundaries exist.”
Kieran Mahon, Davy
