IKM Surveying offer a range of land surveying services to suit our clients needs. Land surveying is a broad term and many services we have on offer fall into this category. For simplicity, our main land surveying services are listed below.
We’ll collect data about the above ground features and local ground topography in the area prior to any development design/works being carried out. 2D and 3D As Built surveys provide a detailed record of a project at a specific stage in time to ensure construction is as planned or to highlight any improvements or alterations that have been made. This information is used to prepare a record drawing which includes topographical survey information as well as a photographic view. This is effectively creating a referable timeline for a project.
A hydrographic survey is similar to a topographic survey but is focussed on surveying waterways. Hydrographic surveys are used for a variety of different purposes, including checking pipelines where they cross rivers for erosion and minimum cover. We utilise a small inflatable boat, outboard motor, drysuits, lifejackets and safety throwlines when carrying out hydrographic surveys. Each river is assessed prior to the survey in order to determine access, health and safety requirements and survey technique. On large rivers, an inflatable rib is used along with an echo sounder to determine bed levels. All survey data is processed using LSS modelling software and exported to an AutoCAD drawing showing a topographical survey of the area and cross-sectional data showing river bed and pipeline details.
ENGINEERING SETTING OUT
Setting Out is marking out a series of coordinated points into a site. Using the latest robotic total stations our surveyors can set out large amounts of data efficiently and rapidly. We extract the data from drawings and plans provided then accurately mark out features on the ground surface.
