High-Rise Vertical Control

Do you require accurate Survey Control to successfully deliver your High-Rise Construction/Engineering Project ?

At Chanton Survey delivering accurate & reliable Survey Data & Survey Control is the foundation of what we do.

Our Clients can be assured that highly accurate & reliable Survey Data is provided at critical stages of their Projects, ensuring complex designs can be constructed with confidence.

We establish & maintain highly accurate Control Networks & Grid Systems to successfully deliver both small & large-scale Construction & Engineering Projects.

How we do it ?

We us integrated GNSS, Robotic Total Stations, Laser Plummets & Precise Levelling techniques to establish & maintain all Horizontal & Vertical Control Networks.

GeoFennel FLP-100 Laser Plummet is used to Transfer Control Vertically through High-Rise Buildings/Structures ensuring very high accuracy Vertical Control is delivered to millimetre tolerance as the structure rises.

Our “Specialist Teams” of experienced Engineering Surveyors are highly trained to Establish & Verify Control Networks, with Field Observations sent to our Head Office for Post-Processing & Analysis. Observations are processed through the latest Survey Software to calculate Adjustments & produce final Control Network Coordinates & Site Grid Systems.

We provide our Site based Staff with Engineering Technical Support & Guidance, to ensure all works are carried out correctly according to current ‘Best Practice’ methods to meet our Quality Assurance standards.
