Topographic design surveys are performed for a variety of project types from planning and engineering design, to identifying encroachments and post construction as-built surveys. Guida performs design surveys for both public and private clients, supporting the design and construction of their improvement projects daily.

Data Collection

Guida understands the importance of proper communication and collaboration with the project team to understand what is required and expected for the project. With any design survey, too little or too much data can be collected. Understanding what needs to be surveyed is just as important as performing the survey.

Innovative Solutions

Guida utilizes a variety of methods, or a combination of them, to develop the design surveys required for any project. Design surveys data can be developed from conventional survey methods, such as total stations, GPS/GNSS methods, and by terrestrial and mobile LiDAR methods.

CAD Experience

Guida will directly produce deliverables in either platform to support our clients’ projects. All topographic survey deliverables can be done in various versions of AutoCAD Civil3D and MicroStation and InRoads; or it can be done in both.
