Recon's surveyors are trained and experienced in construction and civil surveying. This means Recon can be your surveying partner from a project’s conception right through to set out and as-built. Our surveyors utilise the latest Topcon GNSS and robotic total station equipment.
Highly accurate, portable and robust 3D laser scanning technology is an efficient alternative to traditional survey work where a large amount of detail is required. The technology can be used to complete photorealistic scans of buildings, structures, open spaces and other natural or engineered environments with exceptional speed and precision.
Scan technology has progressed hugely in the last few years. Now simple-to-use, highly portable, robust 3D laser scanners complete scans of a wide variety of environments with exceptional speed, rendering detail with millimetre precision. FARO laser scanning systems provide a photorealistic 3D colour scan of the given terrain or structure thanks to the integrated digital cameras.
Recon is at the forefront of UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), or drone, technology. The team have aerial surveyed a wide variety of landforms, offering hundreds of hours of experience utilising this fast, cost-effective data capture technology.
Our comprehensive UAV mapping service provides a full consultative service for clients; assessing survey requirements, planning flight missions, operating our fleet of UAVs and obtaining and delivering data to clients quickly and efficiently. The survey can be undertaken without the need for any personnel to set foot in potentially hazardous environments. This is especially useful when measuring stockpile volumes on active sites, surveying steep or inaccessible terrain, or mapping watercourses and coastlines.
Recon’s machine level systems provide survey accurate, variable depth, asphalt paving and milling level control. Used on a range of high profile projects throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific region the system can be fitted to any asphalt paver or milling machine to control levels to survey accurate, millimetre tolerances. This ensures compliance with the most stringent contractual specifications whilst allowing for the effects of differential asphalt compaction.
New Zealand Steel has been utilising Recon’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) mapping technology to accurately measure stockpile volumes on a regular basis at its Waikato North Head mine site. The technology has resulted in faster data acquisition turn-around times, as well as the elimination of survey staff from within potentially hazardous environments at the mines.
