Barnes & Duncan has partnered with Procom Data, the developers of TownSuite® Municipal Software, to deliver a fully integrated suite of municipal software applications to Manitoba. The suite of applications, including Mapping, Planning, TCA, Financial and Fire Hall, are designed to work together but can be purchased separately.
Our Geographical Information Systems (GIS) department specializes in municipal GIS services in particular, GIS implementation for municipal offices. This includes the mapping of assessment parcels and municipal infrastructure and assets into a central location for easy access to information.
Barnes & Duncan continues to provide surveying services for various contruction projects in Manitoba including: CentrePort Canada Way, East Side Road, Lake Manitoba Flooding, and various land development projects.
Control surveys establish a common, consistent network of physical points that are the basis for controlling the horizontal and vertical positions of improvement projects and facilities. Horizontal and vertical control points are used to establish a framework around which other surveys can be completed and referenced. These control surveys are used for various construction projects such as: roadway, utility lines, underground utilities, tunnels, bridges, and buildings.
3D Laser Scanning provides photo realistic, accurate measurements of objects and buildings. It records architectural façades, complex structures, production and supply facilities, accident sites, interior measurements of buildings and construction progress.
A deformation survey is a survey to determine if a structure or object is changing shape or moving. The three-dimensional positions of specific points on an object are determined, a period of time is allowed to pass, these positions are then re-measured and calculated, and a comparison between the two sets of positions is made.
Flood Mitigation Surveys
We are available to provide flood mitigation surveys or emergency response surveys for flooding situations. Previous work has included emergency surveying for numerous municipalities affected by historic flooding in Manitoba.
Bathymetric surveys are used to determine bottom elevations and profiles of water bodies. Sediment often builds up in certain areas requiring dredging operations and this type of survey can determine how much material may need to be removed. These surveys can also be used for remediation work. The surveys record the sediment surface prior to remediation to assist in the remediation process. Surveys taken over time assist project managers in determining the transience of bottom sediments.
One of the tools in our arsenal is GPS technology. Our firm has state of the art GPS equipment, which facilitates cost effective delivery of surveying and mapping services in urban as well as remote locations. Our firm is capable of dealing with harsh climates, remote locations, long distances or rugged terrain to deliver the necessary information. GPS technology is commonly used to provide control for photogrammetric mapping projects, as well as pipeline and well site surveys.
