CONSTRUCTION STAKING

WHEN YOUR PROJECT DEMANDS EXCELLENCE, CONSTRUCTION SURVEYORS NCW DELIVERS.

Construction Surveyors NCW provides staking for all facets of civil construction and site layout, including underground utilities, site grading, and structures, including buildings, bridges, and vaults. Field staking is written in concise, legible text formats that are easily understood by grade checkers, operators, and supervisors. We also realize construction projects are fluid and sometimes do not go as planned, so we ensure that all field personnel are equipped with the necessary tools to calculate staking for unexpected or changed work directives as the need arises. 

Detailed electronic cut-sheets are also available in the field for most types of staking. All field personnel are experienced and equipped to work safely in demanding environments, and we are proud to offer industry-approved PPE, on-site record of task specific safety plans, and a company-wide drug free safety policy.


TOPOGRAPHIC MAPPING

IF YOUR PROJECT REQUIRES MAPPING, CONSTRUCTION SURVEYORS NCW PROVIDES ACCURATE RESULTS ON TIME AND WITHIN BUDGET.

Construction Surveyors NCW provides site mapping for design, take-off, stockpile quantities, and many other applications. Utilizing the latest and most efficient methods of mapping, we have deep experience surveying many types of sites and structures. We offer expertise in the following:

  • Topographic mapping of original ground for design or prior to excavation for verification of material volumes
  • Mapping of large stockpiles for quantity calculations on dirt work and mining operations
  • As-Built surveys for in-progress or completed construction projects

MONITORING

WHEN MONITORING MATTERS, CONSTRUCTION SURVEYORS NCW DELIVERS.

For projects requiring monitoring, Construction Surveyors NCW provides accurate, detailed results designed to exceed expectations.  These services include:

  • Deep excavation sidewall monitoring for underground parking garages, retaining walls, deep utilities, etc.
  • Structure monitoring for settling and lateral movement of new or existing structures such as buildings and bridges
  • Track monitoring for excavation projects in close proximity to active train rail systems or under rail boring operations

ELECTRONIC SItE MODELS (GPS MODELS)

WHEN YOU NEED SIMPLE, EASY-TO-UNDERSTAND, ACCURATE ELECTRONIC SITE MODELS, LET CONSTRUCTION SURVEYORS NCW BE YOUR SOLUTION.

For contractors utilizing their own in-house survey equipment, we offer several services to ensure you get the most from this investment, including detailed, survey-grade, accurate, easy-to-use electronic site models. Thanks to our years of hands-on field experience, we understand what elements are important to grade checkers and operators when using site models, and we deliver simple and easy-to-understand layering, 3D linework for effortless layout, flawless surfaces for accurate grade checking, and smooth machine control equipment operation to keep your project moving forward.

With this service, we can also establish or extend the control networks necessary for the contractor to calibrate/localize their own GPS systems. Proper control placement and site calibration/localization is just as important as the accuracy of the model itself. Improper control establishment or site calibration/localization can shift the entire coordinate system of the site and result in vertical error throughout the project. Even without a thorough understanding of surveying, most contractors realize the importance of properly matching the project’s datum horizontally and vertically.


GRADE CHECKING

CONSTRUCTION SURVEYORS NCW OFFERS PROFESSIONAL GRADE CHECKING SERVICES AND TRAINING TO MOVE YOUR PROJECT FORWARD.

Construction Surveyors NCW provides full-service grade checking for construction projects of all sizes and durations.  Utilizing electronic 3D site models, our grade checkers are capable of covering entire job sites in short order. Once established, the grade checker can switch from structure excavation to roadway excavation to mass excavation, etc. as quickly as they can walk from one operation to the next. We know that this is a vital service for contractors that are temporarily short-handed. We realize qualified grade checkers are of high value, and proper training can be just as hard to find. We offer both full-service grade checkers and professional training for the contractor that wants to invest beyond the standard rag tape and pea gun methods.
