Geoff is a Partner based in our Birmingham office and manages the measured survey capability across the UK. Geoff has almost 20 years of experience delivering measured survey projects in the property and infrastructure sectors. Geoff can advise on all aspects of measured survey including topographical surveys, boundary determination, structural monitoring and utility mapping.

The Measured Survey team has a range of experience producing topographical surveys for strategic planning and new town development.

In January 2020, the team was asked to undertake a survey of over 240 hectares of agricultural land earmarked for a proposed garden village development. The site presented us with a number of challenges, and data was required quickly to meet project deadlines.

Using experience gained from similar projects, we employed a variety of data collection techniques. The site included two main roads, and these were surveyed using a vehicle mounted mapping system which removed the need for traffic management. To accelerate data collection, open areas of the site were surveyed using an unmanned drone. This allowed almost 80% of data to be collected on site in just three days. A control network was installed by the team to ensure that all data was surveyed to a consistent coordinate grid and guarantee that the client received one continuous 3D model as a final deliverable.

We can supplement our survey deliverables with additional services such as utility mapping, geophysical surveys, habitat mapping and environmental monitoring and present this data in a variety of formats to provide a complete solution for our clients.
