In 2012 and 2014, working as a sub-contractor for Project Consulting Services, Inc in Birmingham, AL, we performed preliminary and as-built surveys on 32 miles of cross country pipeline near Sylacauga, AL for Alabama Power Co. This work was completed with staffing from the Tuscaloosa, AL office.

The project included GPS control network, detailed centerline survey, more than 120 boundary surveys and plats for right-of-way acquisition, road and railroad crossing permits and as-built survey.

RTK was used to collect data during the as-built survey along with a bar code data collection system developed by Project Consulting Services known as C.A.T.S .(Construction Automated Tracking System)  This system provides clients with a complete and usable database of material, design, inspection and testing records through pipeline construction and operation. Our survey data combined with the C.A.T.S. data assured the client that they were getting the most accurate survey possible.

Equipment Utilized:

  • Trimble SPS 880 RTK GP

  • Trimble TSC2 Survey Controllers

  • Leica TC 800 Total Stations   

  • C.A.T.S. Bar Code Data Collectors

Relevance to this Project:

  • Large scale surveying and mapping

  • GPS/RTK Horizontal and Vertical Control
