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.
