3D machine control

Land and Engineering Surveyors

“The future” is a term we hear all the time in this field of work!  As much as it carries some truth it is actually “The present”.

Machine control systems have been around for years now and Site Surveying Services has embraced machine control systems since their inception. Working with esteemed earthworks contractors like CA Blackwells, Priors, and leading Slipform Paving systems at major airports like Heathrow, Gatwick, and Stansted, we recognised the early benefits of these systems.

Our expertise in transforming designs into 3D models for precise installation on earthmoving equipment was a natural progression from our longstanding practice of producing setting-out data in both 2D and 3D formats.

With close partnerships with major machine control manufacturers such as Trimble, Topcon, and Leica, we remain at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, ensuring top-notch services for our clients.

We are able to offer the following services;

  • Base Station Hire
  • Site Calibration – it pays to get people such as us who understand coordinate systems to do this! Get it wrong and your whole site is wrong
  • Model creation from design data be that 3D or 2D formats
  • UTS systems – Hire and Setup – for schemes that require the most accurate results
  • Laser Systems – Hire of Dual Grade lasers and the setup and checking of machines

If you require any machine control services, contact us today to discuss your requirements.

What we do

our services

Land and Engineering Surveyors


topographical surveys

Site Surveying Services work with a variety of different clients on different projects, and we pride ourselves on delivering accurate, efficient, cost effective surveys ensuring our clients receive the best possible product.


utility mapping

Using the latest equipment, we can provide the location of underground services in either 2D or 3D. We use state of the art Ground Penetrating Radar and Electromagnetic Location to assist your project when service avoidance may be a potential issue on site.



Is there any movement? That is the question that is asked before and during any monitoring scheme.  That is the reason we undertake monitoring, to check for movement.

Setting Out

laser scanning

For mass collection of accurate survey data then nothing beats scanning.  Using 3D laser Scanners the surveyors can capture millions of points per second with the creation of a PointCloud. 

Utility Mapping

volumetric analysis

We specialise in the analysis of a scheme’s volumetrics at any point in time.  Be it Tender, Prestart, Monthly, Weekly, or Final.
