The mitigation of pre-construction risk is becoming increasingly important to diligent engineering companies. Knowing what buried services lie beneath a site can avoid delays, costs and even serious injury.
Utility mapping surveys provide critical information on below ground services and structures. It clearly
presents all manner of obstacles (utilities, voids, foundations etc), their depth, position and type. So, this can be achieved without breaking ground and with minimal disruption to the public or other site workers.
A service called upon by Architects, Builders, Highway Engineers, Rail contractors and Utility companies. Using state of art Total Station, GPS and Drone technology. PLS delivers high spec topographic surveys to help clients at the design stage of development.
Data is captured using a variety of methods and technology, dependant on the environment and accuracy level required. High accuracy Survey Control Networks are installed and measured using 0.5” Total Stations, observing multiple rounds of angles and distances. The data is uploaded into market leading traverse computation software and a Least Squares calculated control network is producedRead More
