Many leaders in the oil and gas development space are looking to do everything they can to keep their costs as low as possible. In many ways, the surveying portion of a large oil and gas project provides many of the best opportunities for cost savings. In addition to requiring a significant amount of manpower […]
A 3D model for your oil and gas construction project can provide a variety of benefits. By allowing you to see an exact representation of the terrain where you’ll be building or the existing structure that you’ll be renovating, a 3D model can help you make informed decisions based on complete visibility. The most common […]
Everywhere you look, there’s more evidence of the fact that we are living in the era of the drone. While these machines have traditionally been used for military purposes—and come with a multimillion dollar price tag as a result—a new generation of more affordable drones is now revolutionizing a variety of industries. One of the […]
For companies operating in the oil and gas industry, the potential benefits of 3D modeling are clear: when these organizations are able to look at clear, accurate and detailed representations of a piece of land or a facility, it can become much easier for them to make plans, while also feeling confident that any assumptions […]
Like many other areas of the construction industry, the as-built survey has been revolutionized by the advent of new technologies, and companies that adopt these technologies early on have the opportunity to get the edge on their competition. One technology in particular, 3D laser scanning has had a huge impact on as-built surveys in recent […]
If you’re planning a pipeline construction project, and you’ve heard about the benefits that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can offer during the land surveying process, then you’re certainly not alone. As UAVs become more affordable, they are becoming a popular tool for land surveying. Project managers are flocking to UAVs as a means to lower […]
Like just about every other aspect of the development project experience, the technology and techniques behind land surveying services tend to change very quickly these days. If you don’t make a concerted effort to keep up with the latest happenings, then you may find yourself left behind and overpaying for work that doesn’t actually support […]
In the construction industry, getting the best results depends heavily on using the best techniques and technology available to you. One example of a new technology that many construction projects managers are beginning to take full advantage of is building information modeling (BIM). BIM in construction uses advanced surveying technologies such as 3D laser scanning […]
