4. Drafting & Design
Here at Turning Point Surveys Ltd., we specialize in the 3d modelling, quantity control, progress tracking, construction layout, machine control data exports as well as a full range of survey and construction design needs.
3D Modelling: From existing grades to final grade designs, we can develop accurate and reliable models of your site. Whether you are working on roads, mass excavation, concrete structures, or underground piping, we can take the information you have and generate the georeferenced 3d equivalents. These models can not only be used for surveying, planning, tracking, but can also be integrated into Building Infrastructure models to help you coordinate on different aspects of a project.
Layout Design: The data used in surveying is perhaps the single most important aspect of being accurate. Our calculators can take IFC drawings of any type and develop accurate and simple layout drawings for use in the field. Our experience ranges from oil gas, road construction, water & sewer, building construction, as well as others.
Quantity Tracking: Whether it be in the estimating stage, construction progress, or final turnover, we can manage and track quantities for any type of job. Recently, we completed the data tracking for a mass excavation project that included 14 million cubic meters of excavation over a 6 month period. In the estimating stage, we can take tender packages and use the provided grade information to generate 3d models and provide you with estimated quantities for bidding or quantity varication.
Machine Control Design: We have an experienced and efficient team of drafters that can assist you with any part of the machine control design and export process. We can take any type of design and generate 3d models that can be exported and used for machine control for both Trimble and Topcon Systems.
