These types of surveys involve a variety of survey techniques such as developing complete topographic surveys for structural and drainage analysis, monitoring specific buildings for vertical movement and identifying defects. They are often ordered as a result of litigation. These services require a higher degree of accuracy and precision. Our staff has many years of experience in providing this type of service. We have worked with several law firms and structural and civil firms that specialize in this field of services.
Du Pont Louviers Remediation project:
This project involves monitoring soil contamination and proper disposal of materials on a 5 square mile site. We took over the project in 1999 to coordinate all previous surveys into one coordinate system for compliance and reporting to County, State and Federal agencies and to develop site control for engineering design. Services provided were on an as needed basis and required a scope and fee prior to approval and were all completed on schedule and within budget.
Level 3 Communications Campus:
This project involved developing a complete topographic survey for structural and drainage analysis and monitoring specific buildings for vertical movement. We developed a complete three dimensional model of the site for civil analysis of site drainage. In coordination with the civil, structural and soils engineers we developed and stable on site control system to monitor building movement and monitored the site at regular intervals for vertical movement of structures. We developed all AutoCAD drawings and spreadsheets for analysis of building movement.
Southlands Development Aurora Colorado:
This project involved setting up a control network to monitor movement caused by settling soils. Several cracks were observed in buildings throughout the site. We established a stable control network and monitored piers and control joints on 11 buildings. After establishing a base line on all buildings we continued to monitor them using high accuracy levels at regular intervals to detect any movement down to 1/16th of an inch.
