SURVEY

Surveying has always been an important service provided by Brockenbrough. From bitter cold climates in Iceland to hot, muggy environments like Panama, our surveyors perform to meet our clients’ needs. With today’s survey instruments, we are capable of accessing information more quickly and accurately than ever before. Brockenbrough’s surveying capabilities help ensure seamless transition and continuity throughout the design and construction process.

Brockenbrough has been providing topographic surveying since our founding over 50 years ago. Today we use Total Station and Electronic Field Books, Aerial Mapping and Global Positioning System (GPS) applications to accomplish our tasks. We have mapped many types of facilities from small cell phone tower sites to large residential communities and commercial and industrial complexes.

Brockenbrough is accustomed to providing surveys that meet the requirements of the American Land Title Association/American Congress on Surveying and Mapping (ALTA/ACSM) as well as other specifications as required for each individual project. Whether it is for a small city lot or a large site development project, we have the experience to meet our clients’ requirements.

Boundary surveys are important to every property owner. Lending institutions and title companies often have specific requirements that must be strictly followed in order to meet their stringent demands. Brockenbrough can provide boundary surveys tailored to your needs.

Brockenbrough uses GPS applications to augment our conventional surveying methods. We have the GPS equipment and the staff experience to meet all of our clients’ needs. Our knowledge and up-to-date technological equipment have enabled us to achieve the experience necessary to establish horizontal and vertical controls on almost any project quickly and accurately. As technology continues to improve, we will continue to grow and maintain our superior service in the survey profession.

Brockenbrough provides a wide range of hydrographic surveying services, including those for bridges and bridge support structures. We have also provided clients with topographic information to establish base elevations for monitoring erosion and sediment buildup in the bottoms of lakes and ponds. Through the use of sounding equipment, we can determine subsurface topography for use in the design and construction of bridges and other structures.

Our clients and contractors often request our services to stake out our designs during construction. We encourage this to reduce coordination problems while the construction is under way. Brockenbrough offers construction staking for any type of project. Conventional methods, as well as the use of electronic field books combined with an understanding of the final product, ensure the job gets done right the first time.
