McKenzie Geospatial Surveys first utilised Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology for mapping purposes in 2012. By 2013 we were conducting an aerial survey to assist the Boka Group with their golf course construction planning and visualisation needs for the Montenegrin royal family on the Balkan peninsula. An area of 270 hectares comprising of challenging terrain was mapped in the valley between Tivat international airport and a mountainous ridge adjacent to the picturesque resort of Kotor.
UAV data collection methods were successfully deployed to create 3D colour rendered point cloud data, covering a large area of quarry and landfill construction for Veolia UK. The 3D cloud data was simplified to produce accurate contour and DTM model production to enable our client to confirm void space volumes.
McKenzie Geospatial Surveys utilised 3D CAD design software, GPS/GNSS, Total Station and UAV technologies to provide everything from, surveys, setting out and machine control data preparation. Working alongside PGA Master Pro. designer Alan Walker, this enabled the transformation of vision into reality on this vast 27 hole championship links golf course for our client Ingrebourne Valley Ltd. Works are currently ongoing at the time of this blog. For more information about the existing and future facilities follow the link www.ingrebournelinks.com/
There has been a rise in reservoir construction demand due to drier conditions and agricultural requirements.McKenzie Geospatial Surveys conducted the surveying, re-design, planning drawings production, volumetric calculations and site engineering for a brand new 31 million gallon reservoir construction for Langmead Farms Ltd, Bilsham, West Sussex.
Following its success McKenzie Geospatial Surveys has since surveyed six additional potential sites, with the production of balanced earthwork design drawings and sections for planning purposes.
Our balanced earthwork re-design, surveying and engineering services were deployed at Tuesley Farm, for Hall Hunter Partnership, for the construction of a 33 million gallon reservoir near Guildford, Surrey.
McKenzie Geospatial Surveys have successfully completed the surveying, setting out engineering, volumetric analysis and design elements for one of the largest new parks in London for 100 years.
The Landscape Institute award-winning Northala Park, in Ealing (off the A40 London) required our engineering services for:
- 3D setting out of over 600,000 cubic metres of inert recycled material
- Interim surveys for quantity management and production
- Re-design of elements including the 850m spiral pathway and retaining wall structures
- Engineering of 6 fishing lakes, flood compensation zones, and swales
- Car parks, paths and Gabion wall engineering
- As built surveys and final volume calculation.
McKenzie Geospatial Surveys were proud to provide the foundation setting out engineering, for Lindum Sturgeon Ltd, on the construction of a DeBoer Portal Frame structure to house and exhibit Vintage Buses at the landmark Brooklands Museum.The museum in Weybridge, Surrey is also the home of historic aviation (including Concorde), and British motor racing.
Special care was taken to achieve and exceed the accuracies required for the prefabricated framed sections.
