Topographic. adj ‘’the accurate representation of the physical features of an area’’ Assignments vary in size from individual domestic plots to large commercial and residential developments. Generally aligned to O.S. National Grid the resulting survey can be provided in a variety of CAD formats compatible with 3D modelling packages (i.e. LSS, REVIT, Civil 3D and PDS).
Measured Building Surveys
Supplied as floor plans, elevations and cross sections a measured building survey provides a digital representation of the structural and architectural elements of a property. Laser scanning technology is now an integral part of the survey delivering high density point cloud information to enable the creation of complex 3D models esp for BIM purposes.
We have extensive experience of engineering setting out particularly bulk earthworks and remediation schemes as well as highways, drainage and structures. Following a topographic survey, the resulting digital terrain model (DTM) can be used in extensive volumetric calculations (void usage, cut/fill, stockpile analysis) and a base for landform designs such as screening mounds/sports pitches/golf courses/fishing & boating lakes etc
Utility & CCTV Drainage Surveys
JPP can provide utility drainage surveys using a combination of the latest electromagnetic detection and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment. The resulting information will be presented in a CAD format consistent with project requirements. We are also able to carry out desk top utility surveys which will identify all Statutory Undertaker’s apparatus that is present on site collated into a single report.
We are also able to undertake CCTV drainage surveys to determine sewer locations, depths, pipe sizes and condition. The data can also be incorporated into the topographical survey to provide a comprehensive representation of above & below ground features.
