We have worked on the UK's busiest motorways and trunk roads in Cornwall, throughout the South West conducting surveys and setting out works for consultants, contractors and local authorities.
In recent years we have carried out both topographical and utility surveys for the Highways Agency through management agent Enterprise Mouchel. This has included work on projects such as the A30 Bodmin-Indian Queens bypass, the M5 Exeter, the M26 in Kent and the A303 in Hampshire.
Our experience in setting out for road surfacing means that we are more than aware of the problems that poor level control (established by GPS or EDM) can cause during the construction phase.
The survey outputs for highway schemes are always 3D, with MX being the output of choice for highway engineers. 2D CAD compliments the MX data for presentation and plotting, and the scale factor is always set to 1 so that the ambiguities of scale present in the National Grid are negated.
