It is tight for parking in Douglas. Precision 3D scanning, a concrete basement, lift core, stair core and steel frame. Starting with the basics I levelled the top of baseplates then marked the column centres at 1 metre above the plate, I checked these to grid. We were then able to compare the as-built structural scanned surfaces with the design 3D Revit model. We prepared wall and steel column vertical face analysis checks. Followed by beam soffit horizontal checks. It was interesting to see that naturally the beams followed the baseplates.
Setting out house plots with old school profiles with brick lines and pins on the foundation centre lines. If you are paying for setting out, you might as well have everything.
Surveying around a cottage for extension works. Yarlside in the background on a great for surveying day.
Setting out piles and ground beams within a retained facade in Lancaster. Eventually, the new steel frame will tie back the facade securely.
Sunderland Point on a fine day, measuring a plot for small development works and to prepare an accurate Land Registry title plan.
Land surveying, a green field in Kelbrook for a proposed housing development. Local resistance is already mounting.
Fixing monitoring prisms to a church gable for a long term study in Millom. I’ll first measure the prisms several times to establish the baseline position. Periodically I’ll return to the site and remeasure, reporting the deviation results to the structural engineers.
Land surveying with timid but inquisitive helpers. Mapping a farm complex for the redevelopment of dilapidated agricultural buildings.
Land survey, including the highway for road improvement works. Lambrigg Wind Farm in the distance.
Just to add to my wildlife montage, a Red Squirrel. Topographical and measured building survey of a property for renovation and extension works.
