Summit has a complete and fully functional survey department which specializes in survey verification, ready to assist on all projects. Summit can staff office and field technicians to verify all contractor-performed construction survey stakeout, including but not limited to wet utilities, drainage structures and pipe culverts, bridge, culvert and wall structures, roadway staking( i.e. slope stakes, fine grades, blue tops, curb and gutter) and sign S-dimensions (Types A and B). Digital Terrain Models that are provided by the contractor will be checked, verified and or used for cross checks. Currently, we are performing this same type of hourly service on a project in Division 7 (I-73 Greensboro Outer Loop).
Summit's survey verification staff uses Trimble Business Center software to process field data from GPS and robotic survey equipment. CADD is used to overlay field data of the electronic construction plans to verify location and elevation for bridges, culverts and drainage. As contractors continue to increase the utilization of stakeless grading throughout the state, Summit continues to be a leader at bridging this gap of technology like no other CEI firm. We are equipped with the latest software, survey equipment and 3D modeling knowledge to protect the interests of the Department.
