Why are fixed Control Networks crucial to any construction project ? The fast paced environment of Construction Engineering & Setting Out regularly leaves Engineer’s little time for the finer details, which often includes checking and verifying the existing Topographical Survey of your site is of a high standard of accuracy for position and level. This is key to ensure your project does not encounter level / positional issues further down the line, often leading to further unexpected costs pre completion.
At Encompass Surveys, we can provide your project & sub-contract Engineers & Surveyors with an extensive site wide Control Network, much like the below example. For this Network we initially performed extensive checks on existing features and level’s, and finding no errors we installed a number of Retro Targets ( 60+ ! ) surrounding the job allowing engineers to be able to quickly get going on site.
Backup station’s are set off site & all Easting’s, Northing’s and Z Values are issued in multiple format’s, DWG ( 3D ), PDF, CSV and we also place all information available within a QR code in the site office / canteen. This allows any visiting engineer’s to utilise the very latest verified control station’s to allow the best accuracies. Please get in touch with any of the Encompass team if you had any similar requirements.
