Preparation is key for any new project. Get that right and you are much less likely to run into problems later. Surveying for a new project is a key part of that preparation.
Surveying for a New Project
A good place to start is with a general overview and then move onto a more detailed survey later. Drones are a great way to start the process off and can be used throughout the progress of a project. A drone like mavic has the ability to the ability to shoot photos and videos in HDR (High Dynamic Range).
Picking the right tools and machinery
Laser marking is a process that marks or labels the surface of a item using a low powered laser beam. The technique is commonly used to apply barcodes, logos, QR codes, and other types of identification into materials like stainless steel and titanium. Using a laser marking system is ideal for producing high precision markings on a wide range of materials. Even for the most intricate and complex graphics need not pose an issue for laser marking. As laser marking systems can typically handle small-scale shapes and one-point fonts, there’s unlikely to be a problem.
Getting your site set up
Is the area hard to access? Are you working in an area with severe weather conditions? Do you want to preserve the surrounding environment? Are you working close to residences? Is there wildlife nearby? All these issues need to be considered when you are getting your site set up. If the answer to these questions is yes, it’s worth considering getting in rig mats from a supplier like Northernmat.ca.
Rig matting is a portable structure that provides support for your project. As a result rig mats are important for many different heavy duty jobs. In many construction sectors, rig mats are most commonly used for temporary roads and facilities. With power lines, rig matting is also a useful tool to utilise, to help with the creation and infrastructure of standing lines and poles.
Setting up procedures
Give some thought to how you are going to organise your site on a day to day basis as well as its physical structure. Some of your procedures will be dictated by health and safety protocols and your company or main contractor may already have these in place, for instance. Obviously no two sites are identical, so there may need to be some variation to suit terrain, customer requirements, etc. Looking after your people is key because if they feel cared for they are much more likely to be conscientious employees. It’s worth making sure that your staff facilities are up to scratch and it’s as comfortable a work place as is possible for those involved with the project.
