Complementary Geomatics Services
Our Topographical surveys are carried out in line with the standards set out by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). We pride ourselves on ensuring our survey teams are trained to the highest standards and conduct their work in a professional, time efficient manner.
Ardent’s Geomatics teams are highly proficient in the use of GPS across all of our surveys and are able to use the technology to ensure data is in line with OS National Grid and Ordnance Datum.
Our team have experience in providing our clients with accurate control points to give peace of mind to the project manager that a high level of accuracy will be maintained throughout the lifecycle of the project. We utilise our bespoke Atlas database to provide real time reporting to help highlight any issues at the earliest opportunity, allowing for swift decisive action to be taken.
As Built Surveys:
We have the ability to provide accurate as-built surveys throughout the lifecycle of a project to ensure the client can maintain quality throughout the construction process, ensuring risk of error is mitigated.
Boundary Dispute Surveys:
Using our experience in resolving boundary disputes and land registration we can accurately map the extents of a boundary to provide detailed 2D plans for our clients to use accordingly.
Underground Utility Surveys:
Ardent offer Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Surveys on projects ranging in size and complexity. We take pride in our thorough approach to mapping utilities and appreciate the need for a diligent, contentious approach. Our utility surveys are undertaken in line with the BSI specification PAS 128:2014 standard and is covered by either a Desktop Utility Record Search Report, Site Reconnaissance Survey, Detection Survey or a Verification Survey. Our utility surveys are processed by our dedicated CAD operators who efficiently and accurately produce drawings.
3D Laser Scanning:
Our laser scan surveys allow the rapid creation of detailed 3D models to meet a variety of needs and specifications. Our 3D models allow our clients to monitor progress at various stages of a project and are produced in a BIM compliant manner to ensure our data enhances the wider project picture.
A competent, reliable site engineer can be key to ensuring a complex design is set out in a detailed and timely manner.
Ardent offer a wide range of Site Engineering services across a wide spectrum of projects. Our engineers are responsible for the setting out, measuring, and marking up of key features across projects of various levels of complexity. Our engineers use industry leading technology including total station, GPS and laser scanners, and are trained in line with Ardent standards and all hold CSCS accreditation.
Our engineers offer services including:
- RC Frames
All of our survey work is supported by a team of highly qualified, diligent geospatial specialists utilising industry leading software from AutoCAD and ESRI.
Our CAD technicians are proficient in the full lifecycle of our data from processing survey results, and producing 2D and 3D plans to providing results in an integrated web-based application if required, making use of Ardent’s bespoke Atlas database.
Ardent’s CAD specialists work closely with our survey teams to ensure a complete understanding of the data and the standards set out, this allows a seamless approach to our work from collection, through processing and into plan production.
