Construction and Engineering Surveys South Africa

Construction and Engineering Surveys anywhere in South Africa call 0810432004.

Engineering Surveys refer to the various surveying tasks that are done on a construction site in support of engineering needs. As construction surveyors, we gather data to enable planning of construction activities. These various stages of building and construction require some survey measurements and output.

We assist in activities such as design of a projects, collecting data enabling sewer line designs, storm water designs and the design of the physical dimension of buildings and civil structures.

Our expert skills also help in the design of elevations and levels of structures in building and construction projects.

Professional engineering surveying in the construction phase means accurate setting out of design elements. This refers to the actual placing of structures on the ground, placing correct levels on structures and marking out positions of each civil structure or building. Therefore we ensure accurate positioning, making sure the design shape and size is achievable.

Typical Projects For Construction and Engineering Surveys

Our services offer excellent solutions to dimensional aspects of engineering projects of various forms

Construction of Roads and railways – topographical surveys for design, as well as setting out of road curves and routes. We survey through-out the project directing levels for different layers and ensuring compliance with project specifications

Construction of Bridges and Civil Structures

Redshadow Engineering Surveyors provide accurate surveying services for the construction of bridges and other civil projects such as tunnels and pipeline projects

On site surveys for power station activities – the setting out of steel structures, civil structures and other buildings in the power station construction projects

Dam surveys – setting out and monitoring surveys

Similarly, we perform surveys for recreational facilities. Such surveys enable the planning and design of recreational facilities and well as game reserves

Alignment surveys for such equipment like overhead cranes. We therefore make use of specialized equipment to ensure the crane rails are accurately erected

Surveyor Companies Service – Design Stage

Consulting surveyor firms service the civil and construction industry, property developers as well as mapping agencies. In the design phase of developments and construction and civil projects, specific data relating to the land in question needs to be collected. This is where engineering surveying firms get in. Collation of important data relating to size and shape of land, air space and water areas of a land parcel.

The data includes altitudes, angles and dimensions, which surveyors further process to produce maps showing aspects like contours, rivers and so forth.

Such information, measured with high accuracy, allows design engineers to place and determine how their design proposal should look like. Engineers may use the information to determine the costs of excavation and how slopes will look like and any other dimensional aspect of the project

Similarly, mapping agencies rely on data from surveying measurements. The shape and size of the earth or portions of it, require field measurements from surveyors.

Survey Consultancy Companies Responsibility During Project Implementation

The surveyor consultancy firm will be very much involved during project implementation. All the design elements of a project needs accurate transfer from paper to ground. Therefore, surveyors work on site to ensure that design elevations, positions, sizes and angles are as they appear on the drawings.

There are very specific accuracy requirements for each and every structure as may be determined by the design engineers. These are limits of tolerances permissible or the amount of “error’ allowance on a structure.

Surveying firms can either major in control surveys, whereby they offer accurate reference points for large projects. These reference points will be in use by construction surveyors

Surveyors can also work in the cadastral industry, specializing in property boundaries for purposes of title. This includes land surveying sub division of property into smaller title portions. Such surveys will be sent for approval by the department of the surveyor general, and records kept at the deeds registry.

Surveying Companies in South Africa – Best Survey Firm

Top of surveying companies in South Africa, we do topo surveys, construction surveys, mining surveys, setting out surveys & more – book online. We beat any land surveying company in the land in terms of pricing, quality and client satisfaction. Let us know how our survey consultancy can assist you.

We support land information management by providing detail surveys to help with plans and designs.

If you need help in guiding contractors on site, we can station a construction surveyor to lead with markings and to obtain quality in positions. Our land survey firm works all over South Africa. Therefore, we are present for surveying firms in Gauteng as much as survey companies in Durban for instance.

Our company assists in mine surveys as well. We do surveys for your volume audits.

Book our surveying organisation for reliable services in route planning and construction, such as pipelines, roads and railwyas.

Products of Our Surveying Companies

Engineering Surveying Companies work hand in hand with civil engineers and other engineers in the construction phase of civil projects. Engineering surveyors obtain and process data for the design of earth works projects and others such as roads, bridges, railway, shopping malls and land development.

Our land surveying consulting firm uses top instruments and software to produce maps.

These maps show ground shape and size. Our products include diagrams, plans, land outlines, contours, man-made as well as natural features of an area with accurate relative positions.

Full time engineering surveyors use equipment such as Total Station, GPS, automatic and dumpy Levels in their day to day measures. Our equipment and tools undergo regular calibration checks to re align for top results.

Skills

Surveyors also go by the name topographic surveyors, if they are surveying for land for detail maps.

They are also known as Geomatics surveyors. Therefore we are a Geomatics company in as much as we are topographic company.

Our team has the following skill set-

Maths calculation skills such as trig maths.

The ability to understand drawings and make conclusions.

Logical reasoning

IT skills and ability to learn software

Problem solving

Attention to detail

Topographic Surveyor Consultancy

Topographic Surveyor Consultancy, for all engineering, construction and civil site surveys all over South Africa, call 0810432004

A Topographic surveyor, also known as an engineering surveyor, is responsible for precise ground terrain measurements. Apart from demarcation of property boundaries and identifying them physically, surveyors help design engineers with relevant data such as contours and position of natural man made features of a site or portion of land

After taking accurate ground measurements, surveyors produce unique contour maps of the surfaces of sites which is useful for various functions

  • Engineers use contour maps to design civil structures such as drainage systems like storm water drainage or sewer drainage
  • Design of any platform such as a football pitch, sport tracking field where slopes may be required
  • Generally, design of any slope related project
  • Town maps and regional maps
  • Routes such as roads and railway design
  • Civil and Construction design projects

Operations of a Topographic Surveyor Consultancy Firm/ Engineering Surveyor Consultancy

The most important aspect of topographic surveyor work is to accurately determine the points and their respective distances and angles. Traditionally, such information will appear in a field book, the surveyor’s field book which have to be recorded in the form of field notes.

To achieve this, the site surveying processes will include, among other things

Setting up accurately measured bench marks for reference

These bench marks will have positions in the horizontal and vertical dimensions

Every other detail measured on site, will be referenced to these bench marks

Common detail that surveyors pick include

Streams, buildings, milestones, streets and any other natural or man-made features present in the
