McIntosh & Associates utilizes Trimble G.P.S. Total Station Receivers for G.P.S. surveys.
With the Trimble G.P.S. Total Station, McIntosh & Associates can generate precise coordinates while surveying a point – without requiring line of site, without having to point an instrument and in any weather condition.
This is made possible by using Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) surveying, which includes dual frequency receivers with a radio communication line. By utilizing this technology, surveying productivity of over 100% have been common compared to optical surveying techniques on larger scaled surveys.
Two-Person Survey Crew
All survey crews include supervision and coordination by a Party Chief with at least ten (10) years of experience and a Surveyor with at least three (3) to five (5) years of experience as a chainman. A two-person survey crew increases the speed at which a one-person crew can perform the work. All survey crews are trained to perform various construction staking, types of surveys including oil field construction, A.L.T.A., topographic and boundary surveys. The use of the Trimble with a two-person crew is equivalent to a three-person crew.
The Trimble Equipment has been proven to improve the speed of a two-man crew by 50% while maintaining the required accuracy in surveying.
