  • Site Survey Control
  • Calculations and Survey Layout
  • Construction Inspection
  • As-built Site Condition Surveys
  • Progress and Month End Quantities Reporting
  • 3D Models and Machine Control

Existing Site Conditions Surveys

Topographic surveys of pre-construction conditions, data pickup of elevations, above ground and underground utilities, above ground improvements, legal boundaries and survey bars. We may also survey locations for boreholes, monitoring wells, materials or density testing, and settlement monitoring. Digitize historical as-built utilities data and relate to construction site boundaries.
