Design surveying consists of survey the existing conditions of a future work site. This includes topography, existing buildings and infrastructure - which includes underground infrastructure whenever possible. By hiring EDGE at this phase of your project, you ensure accuracy and consistency from start to finish.
At EDGE we understand the challenges of construction in Alaska. Remote locations, inclement weather, narrow project windows or tight budgets we have seen it all. With over 50 years of combined Construction surveying experience, we are ready to take on any job. Our crews intergrate cutting-edge survey technology with practical construction experience.
EDGE uses a combination of GPS and Echo Sounding technology to survey the bottom of rivers, lakes coastlines and ocean depths. Once hydrographic data has been collected, digital subsurface terrain models are created. Construction and expansion of seawalls, runways, ports and harbors are just a few examples of projects that require hydrographic survey data for volume calculations and mapping.
EDGE offers a full range of land surveying services, including but not limited to: Subdivisions, Right of Way and Easement Plats, Boundary Surveys, Topographical Elevation and Flood Certificates, Legal Descriptions, Control for Aerial Photogrammetry, Wetland Location Surveys, Utility Mapping, CAD Based and GIS Mapping.
At EDGE, we have years of experience working with these systems; from excavators used for under water construction to cold planers that produce highly accurate milled asphalt surfaces. When working on machine controlled projects, our crew are highly trained at establishing controls, and verifying the surface model accurately matches existing structures and on-site conditions. Project managers and crews can be provided to keep the project on track and to identify and resolve any problem encountered. Correct implementation of this technology, and the right management, will lead to significant time and cost savings in the future.
