Site Surveys at Military and Other Facilities
For many years SMC has provided detailed topographic and property surveys for many industry segments. The firm has provided services for numerous school development and expansion projects, municipal parks and recreation facilities, improvements at military bases and water treatment plants and for the development of cogeneration plants.
Typically, these surveys are performed using conventional on-the-ground survey methods using robotic total stations. The use of robotic surveying instrumentation with multiple 1-person survey crews allows SMC to be very responsive to our clients’ needs. The field surveys include the location of property monuments, wetland flags, borings, buildings, pavement, recreational facilities and utility structures. Invert elevations are determined by direct measurement for sewer and drainage structures. Digital terrain models are developed from the field data and contours are developed at 1-foot intervals. For recreation facilities and sports fields, contours are typically developed at ½ - foot intervals. Final plans are typically delivered to clients in AutoCAD® format.
