With a surveying background in the quarrying industry Benchmark Surveys has a wealth of experience carrying out quarry and landfill surveys. Many old workings have been turned into a landfill in the past. We have the knowledge of the requirements of all aspects of land survey in quarrying from updating scaled plans and tip sections to carrying out reserve surveys locating drilled boreholes and trial pits to establish mineral depths over vast areas.
We also carry out stockpile surveys in quarries and depots for auditing purposes.
Landfill surveys are carried out for our clients to establish volumes of fill and remaining void. We also carry out engineering surveying work for capping and restoration. Closed landfills are surveyed on an annual basis to monitor settlement.
We can now also survey dangerous areas with state of the art drone technology, which not only reduces the risks involved with surveying a site but in some cases is even more accurate because drone-generated point clouds gather millions of points compared to the hundreds gathered in a ground-based survey.
3D Volumetric Measurement of Quarries & Stockpiles
Use accurate geo-referenced DSM’s to instantly measure stockpile volumes so you can make on-the-spot decisions about your materials needs.
Safety improvements: Identify safety concerns in real time, Reduce the time employees and contractors spend on site and in dangerous areas.
In some cases, this information is even more accurate because drone-generated point clouds gather millions of points compared to the hundreds gathered in a ground-based survey.
