DATA PREP THAT YIELDS HIGH RETURNS
At ESS, surveying begins in the office. Our Data Prep Technicians use Trimble Business Center and Auto-CAD to covert the engineer’s plans into 3D models. This allows our team to proactively find any discrepancies within the construction documents before it reaches the field, reducing the potential for costly delays. This process gives us the opportunity to identify spot elevations that don’t match up, utility tie-in or drainage errors, to double-check difficult grades, and develop customized VE options.
BIG DATA. BIG RESULTS.
Using plans and digital models, our Survey team collects additional information from the project site. Beyond standard construction staking and site measurements, we deploy aerial drones operated by our in-house licensed pilots. The data collected allows our team to track and analyze equipment utilization, man power, and productivity, ensuring our team is minimizing inefficiencies and maximizing the project budget.
POSITIONED FOR FIELD-TO-FINISH PRECISION
GPS is an integral part of our project approach. We use this technology to stream critical data to the field, directly to each piece of equipment. This data feeds automatic controls eliminating any guesswork. We also use total stations equipped with lasers to create geometric profiles, or digital road maps, to keep our equipment on track every step of the way.
Ultimately, our GPS and Survey teams ensure that what your designer put on paper, we’re building in the field.
