Construction Surveying - High-rise surveying

High-rise surveying within construction involves specialized surveying techniques tailored for tall structures, ensuring precise measurements, layout, and positioning of elements in skyscrapers or tall buildings. This type of surveying guarantees vertical accuracy, alignment, and compliance with design specifications critical for the safe and successful construction of towering edifices

"There is one person who is a surveyor’s worst enemy when you need correct vertical alignment in building surveying. It’s called the architect."

Of course, this is a joke.

As technology is moving forward, architects are inventing new ways of the morphology of design

This makes it harder for the surveyor to provide correct vertical alignment in building surveying, which is essential when constructing an object.

That’s why modern GNSS surveying techniques are crucial. 

Of course, sometimes buildings can be aligned with optical systems if there are adequate and clear lines of sight. But buildings are often constructed inside urban areas, and lines of view are blocked by other objects.

What do you get with better vertical alignment systems in building surveying?

  • Speed: your projects can keep up more accessible with the deadlines, and you will save time 
  • Real-time information: large high-rise surveying projects are always challenging, so having correct data at the right time will help you stay stress-free 
  • Good onsite communication: well-designed site software will help you to adjust and transform different coordinate systems and automate them
