With Tri-Tech, you can expect not only precision and efficiency but also a forward-looking approach that optimises your project’s long-term success.
A frequently posed and pivotal question, both prior to and during monitoring campaigns, revolves around the enquiry, “Is there any movement?” This question is at the heart of our dedication to monitoring, as it constitutes the primary objective of our efforts on your site.
Our monitoring campaign surveys are conducted using well-established and repeatable measurement techniques. These techniques encompass a range of tools, including fully automated systems seamlessly integrated with central databases, digital levels, vibration monitors, precision total stations, and scanners. The selection of the most suitable technique is contingent upon the specific type of movement being investigated on-site.
Tri-Tech Surveying boasts a wealth of experience in executing monitoring projects, spanning from large-scale initiatives such as housing developments and roads to more modest endeavors like factories and residential houses.
At Tri-Tech, we perceive surveying as more than just the act of taking measurements and collecting data; it encompasses the entire process from start to finish. Our in-house 3D Laser Scanners possess the capability to capture millions of points per second, resulting in highly detailed point clouds that provide a comprehensive representation of the physical site. This allows for remote viewing from your office, eliminating the necessity for on-site visits.
The gathered data sets seamlessly integrate with BIM, Revit, and CAD software, enabling versatile data manipulation. This includes the creation of BIM Models, Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), Cross Sections, Elevations, Internal Floor Plans, and various other applications.
BIM Model Creation
In the realm of surveying, the process of creating a Building Information Modelling (BIM) model entails the use of specialised software to craft a comprehensive 3D digital representation of a building or infrastructure project. This model incorporates crucial details regarding the project’s design, construction, and ongoing maintenance. These BIM models serve as invaluable assets in surveying, providing an abundance of information that proves essential throughout the entire project lifecycle, from initial planning and design to construction and continuous upkeep.
Within these models, users can access intricate insights into various aspects of the building, including its structure, systems, components, material specifications, energy consumption patterns, and other vital metrics.
Throughout the course of your project, we provide volumetric analysis services at multiple stages, including during the tender phase, pre-start, weekly updates, monthly assessments, and final evaluations. Our state-of-the-art software allows us to apply construction depths, delineating precise ‘earthworks outlines.’ We also have the capability to segment areas based on different points of interest or material types.
Drawing upon our extensive field experience in data capture and measurement requirements, we confidently assert our superiority in this surveying domain, outperforming any competition. Moreover, we offer flexibility in presenting our data, accommodating your preferences and needs by providing formats that range from CAD to PDF and spreadsheets.
3D Machine Control
Machine control systems have been a presence in the industry for many years, and Tri-Tech has been a trailblazer in adopting these technologies since their inception.
Our expertise in translating designs into precise 3D models for installation on earthmoving equipment naturally evolved from our longstanding practice of generating setting-out data in both 2D and 3D formats. We have cultivated close partnerships with major machine control manufacturers like Trimble, Topcon, and Leica, which has allowed us to maintain our status as pioneers in cutting-edge technology. This commitment ensures that we continue to deliver top-tier services to our valued clients.
Setting Out & Site Engineering
With a deep-rooted history in the industry, Tri-Tech has cultivated robust partnerships with a multitude of civil engineering firms throughout the years. This collaboration has led to the creation of an exceptionally skilled team of Site Engineers and Engineering Surveyors. Our collective team boasts extensive experience across a spectrum of disciplines, allowing us to strategically deploy personnel with the precise skill sets and expertise required to meet your engineering needs on-site.
Whether it involves laying out a house extension or strategising for a substantial housing development encompassing 200 houses, our team possesses the essential experience to guarantee the smooth and efficient execution of your project.
Control Network Installation
During this initial phase, our utmost priorities revolve around precision and accuracy, as they form the fundamental building blocks for all subsequent surveying efforts and their ultimate outcomes. Drawing upon our extensive expertise, we cater to a diverse range of projects, encompassing extensive highway schemes and intimate residential developments alike, all while recognizing the unique demands of each endeavour.
Our seasoned professionals are fully equipped to provide expert guidance concerning the required levels of accuracy, taking into careful consideration project tolerances and the nature of the work at hand. Whether you’re embarking on a new project, expanding an existing one, or verifying an established network, our capabilities empower us to tailor a control scheme perfectly aligned with your specific needs.
Aerial & Drone Survey
For many years Tri-Tech have been actively conducting UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) operations, operating in strict compliance with regulations set forth by the Civil Aviation Authority. Our primary focus is on safety, and we ensure the necessary insurance coverage for a wide spectrum of tasks, including site mapping, progress monitoring, and inspections.
Our team comprises multiple fully qualified UAV pilots who meticulously adhere to CAA regulations during all flights. Additionally, we maintain rigorous in-house standards for thorough mission preparation. By harnessing UAV technology, we are able to efficiently cover extensive land areas, capturing an exceptional level of detail that would present challenges for conventional survey methods.
For instance, when confronted with buildings featuring pitched roofs that are inaccessible from the ground, our fleet of drones excels at collecting this additional aerial information.
Full Measured Building Surveys
Our specialty lies in conducting measured building surveys, which encompass a broad spectrum of projects. We handle everything from private residences and historic structures to prisons, expansive commercial or industrial facilities, and even sports stadiums. Irrespective of the project’s scale, we employ state-of-the-art 3D laser scanning technology to provide precise internal floor plans, elevations, and internal area calculations directly at the site.
Our site operatives, who are trained in confined space entry, are well-equipped to explore even the most compact spaces and assess the tiniest areas. They ensure comprehensive coverage from floor to ceiling, top to bottom, in various lighting conditions, whether well-lit or low-light settings. Our standard measured building surveys encompass crucial details such as ceiling heights, window specifications, door heights, and sanitary locations. Moreover, we offer the flexibility to enhance drawing details to meet your specific requirements.
By harnessing state-of-the-art surveying technology, we prioritize the secure and efficient evaluation of watercourses, ensuring reliable services for our clients. Our capabilities extend to the production of long sections and cross sections that align with the standards set by the Environment Agency (EA). Furthermore, we offer export options in various formats, including HEC, RAS, ISIS, and EACSD, facilitating comprehensive river modeling and enabling visual representation of channel profiles.
The survey data we furnish holds significant value, particularly in scenarios involving planning objections related to flood risk.
