ABNA has supported large and small projects alike by providing survey technicians to perform a number of survey activities such as route surveys, topographic surveys, cross-sections and profiles and establishing existing and proposed centerline alignments, record research, boundary surveys and adjustments, 3D LiDAR scanning and remote sensing, establishing 1st and 2nd order controls, right-of-way monuments, land use determination, complex construction staking, layout and as-builts. ABNA’s Survey Department consists of five survey crews and five office support staff, including multiple project managers, two FAA 107 licensed UAV pilots, and three Professional Licensed Surveyors.
ABNA employs a wide array of survey equipment, which enables the safe, timely, and accurate completion of projects. These instruments include three Trimble GPS units, four Trimble Robotic Total Station Units, a variety of LiDAR and photogrammetric scanners, digital levels and a variety of other conventional survey equipment. In addition to convention methods, ABNA employs a variety of 3D scanning techniques, including static, mobile, and aerial LiDAR, employing both drones and fixed wing vehicles, as well as sonar deployed to boats for bathymetric information. Additionally, ABNA’s survey staff have extensive experience in the use of state of the art software such as Microstation, Autocad, Geopak, TopoDOT, Trimble Business Center and Trimble Realworks.
