In October 2022, Sean Smith, Richard Clarke, Craig Robinson and Jack Ratcliffe from ZS Surveys attended the site.
Because of the location of this site and the high footfall within the area, the team had to work out of hours to make sure the survey was safe and efficient.
Sean began by setting Trimble S5 control stations in exact locations on the ground. From these, he was able to measure distances and angles between points of detail and the control stations, allowing Sean to gather data on the shape of the ground.
Richard began by scanning each face of the building on site with the Trimble X7, and then scanned the internals to create a 3D model. The data from this model was then skimmed and used to create a vertical plan.
Craig and Jack first carried out a site walk, to see any points which connected overhead features to those underground. These were then used to direct the team to use ground penetrating radar and cable locators.
Once our team had gathered their necessary measures and data, these were all inputted into specialist software and used to draw a complete map and survey.
