Our Survey staff includes multiple survey field crews and office technicians led by our experienced professional land surveyors. Our staff has the experience necessary to provide the innovative thinking and technical skills required to meet our clients' needs and challenges. With survey operations at multiple offices, our survey managers can provide personal services to our clients and still draw upon the technical and physical resources of our entire firm.

King Engineering uses state-of-the-art surveying equipment, including real-time (RT) global positioning systems (GPS) equipment using Virtual Reference Station (VRS) networks which eliminates the need to set up a conventional GPS base station, wireless robotic total stations with data collectors and digital levels. These tools enable rapid collection of data and, with our advanced technologies in data transfer, King can wirelessly transmit information to and from the office, download files, collect and report work status and upload completed job files before the survey crews ever leave the field.

We are also very proud of being able to offer high definition 3D LASER scanning as one of our many surveying services. This type of surveying is a safer means of rapidly collecting data, mitigating risk to our field crews by not having to physically stand in potentially hazardous environments, such as busy roadway intersections. This technology has proven to be extremely accurate and provide more detailed information than conventional optical plane surveying by mapping aerial and vertical surface features also. By using advanced 3D digital scanners, we can bring the project from the field to our desktops as a total 3D model. Utilizing VRS with laser scanning the project 3D model can be accurately placed in any required horizontal and vertical datum. This technology saves our clients more money by allowing our surveyors to escalate their speed of collection while increasing the number of surveyed points gathered, improving the overall efficiency of their workflow thus reducing the amount of field crew days necessary to complete a project. 3D Scanning is a proven way to make a positive impact on a project’s bottom line.

Every project is considered unique and King Engineering’s experienced staff plans which technology or combination of technologies will be best suited to deliver the client’s product on time and on budget in advance of any field work. This type of planning provides the client a premium product at an affordable cost.
