A simple example of the cost and time savings that our technologies provide was demonstrated by a recent request to change a lease description for the Timken Museum located in the world-famous Balboa Park. Utilizing our scanner, H&A field crews surveyed not only the museum but the sidewalks, walls, and stairs adjacent to the museum. These hardscape features were the basis of the legal description request.
Project Challenge and Solution
After our team performed the survey, the museum director requested that we change the description by altering which specific hardscape features were to be used. Using more traditional surveying equipment, this request would have necessitated a return of crews to the site to re-survey the new constraints, incurring additional costs to the client.
The vast amounts of point cloud data acquired by the survey team allowed for the new legal description, thereby enabling our office staff to recreate the description in a matter of hours versus days. This ability to “mine data” is being effectively used by H&A wherever practical. This empirical use of technological advances is another example of H&A’s ongoing efforts to recognize and employ faster, safer, and less expensive means of providing quality products to our clients.
