Over the past three years we have invested a lot of time and resources into AutoCAD technical drawing skills and the use of Satellite GPS Surveying Equipment as a tool for site surveys and setting out.
We use Satellite GPS equipment in conjunction with AutoCAD drawings (see below), and can accurately position structures such as a stage in the middle of a field without having to take physical measurements from a datum point, which is extremely time consuming. Using the GPS Equipment we have found it has reduced our site setting out time by a third, considerably reducing site build periods and saving costs.
GPS site surveys are carried out recording the topography and highlighting uneven unusable ground. Ordnance Survey maps are not always accurate and the GPS survey identifies the correct locations of tracks, gates, fences, streams, trees and woods. The electronically recorded data is uploaded into our AutoCAD computer programme, updating the Ordinance Survey map, creating an accurate representation of the site, from which a workable layout can be designed and introduced on the ground.
Using this has improved our ability to effectively design sites with greater accuracy and efficiency, giving clients peace of mind and trust in the layout and design.
We draw site plans, and design layouts using the industry’s leader in 2D and 3D computer assisted design, Autodesk’s AutoCAD. This enables us to accurately draw detailed site layouts and produce scale drawings that can be distributed electronically via our Secure Client Area to all persons authorised by the client.
