We support the build process in its entirety, from adoption of land to the handover of the last property

The movement of earth on site can be hard to manage as most of your sites are so fast moving. Better use of technology and mass data will only bring better efficiencies on site resulting in better decisions, smarter working and significant cost savings.

House builders are now starting to use this type of technology with great success. If all teams started use this type of data in their day-to-day work, smarter working, group collaboration

Transform finished floor level files into a comprehensive 3D surface encompassing the entire site design. By incorporating construction design depths for various elements such as plots, driveways, footpaths, and drainage, an exhaustive earthworks model is created that can be used to calculate cut and fill for the entire site or individual plots. Drones equipped with surveying technologies, such as LiDAR or photogrammetry, are used to gather the necessary data for cut and fill calculations.

Our skilled technicians overlay your site drawings in CAD or PDF format into our accurate drone survey data.

We convert topographical surveys from 2D to 3D and overlay these as a 3D surface. In addition, earthworks models can be overlayed for comparison against our 3D drone data.

The CAD overlay helps compare the design against the as-built which will assist in highlighting errors in construction such as fence boundary discrepancies, the incorrect installation of driveways and footpaths and plot and road positioning.

Each stockpile is accurately measured to a baseline calculation giving the cubic volume. This fully supports the Material Management Plan for the site. Earthworks movements can be tracked by comparing an area against a previous survey to quantify the amount of earth moved.
