Expertly Delivered Engineering Land Surveyor Services

Once a scheme has been designed, it is the responsibility of the land surveyor services provider to transfer the design data on to the ground at site through an engineering survey.

The scope of work may vary from simply marking proposed pile locations to assisting with the installation of a complex structure such as a bridge or part of an offshore facility. Modern building survey instrumentation may assist greatly in the surveying by providing rapid, accurate GIS data – however, there remains a great responsibility on the surveyor to ensure absolute best practice through all stages of an engineering survey or setting-out project.

Often, design of a scheme will occur many months or years prior to installation or construction – and inevitably the level and accuracy of GIS data will change significantly as the process evolves. In an ideal world, a high quality and detailed land/topographical survey would form the basis of all engineering and design work so as to reduce ambiguity when transferring this data to the ground. However, this is not always the case and often, additional building surveyor services and checks need to be made prior to any setting-out activity. This may involve, for example, the reconciling of vertical data or the dimensional checks of existing buildings or even the integration of multiple existing drawings – whatever the case, it is essential that very strong and open lines of communication are maintained with the customer.

Bearing Tree Land Surveying will assign only the most senior and experienced personnel to deliver surveying services and setting-out works. Our survey equipment pool and our GIS data management systems have been designed to ensure that all software is fully conversant with the field instrumentation.

As a result, plans, coordinate listings and layouts can be digitally uploaded and downloaded to and from the field respectively. This saves time and, more importantly, avoids expensive ‘keying in’ errors and increases the ability to field check more rigorously.
