Volumetric Surveys

Volumetric Surveys

Volumetric surveying is a particularly useful type of land survey for construction projects. Architects and engineers can use volumetric surveys to calculate the volume and value of earthworks, stockpiles and other materials.

A volumetric survey is similar to a surface-level topographical survey. However, the surveying and modelling procedures pay close attention to levels and break lines. This gives you a fuller picture of the volumes of land and materials on your premises, including surface and subsurface strata.

With this information on hand before and during a project, a construction company can:

  • Compare earthworks quantities and plans to accurately calculate project costs at the design stage. You can, therefore, make changes to your plans before construction begins.
  • Calculate the volume of stockpiles, backfilled areas, and open excavations to analyse and balance cut or fill quantities.
  • Evaluate what resources and skills you need for the successful and cost-effective import or removal of materials from the site.
  • Work out the airspace remaining in a landfill; calculate the water capacity of a dam; determine the amount of material you have removed from a quarry.

Volumetric surveys are regularly used by quarry operators, contractors, and waste disposal facilities to calculate quantities for a variety of practical and financial applications.

Volumetric Survey Capabilities

Cloud-Conversion can use aerial survey drones in conjunction with ground-level 3D laser scanning to produce holistic and accurate volumetric data for modelling stockpile or earthworks volumes. Our volumetric surveying work is rapid and noninvasive, saving you money as well as time on equipment hire or purchase.

Aerial Terrain Surveys

Aerial volumetric surveys are particularly useful for construction work concerning numerous stockpiles or earthworks. A drone can provide an instant snapshot of an entire area. On the other hand, ground surveying produces results more quickly, can be conducted in any weather conditions, and is more accurate.
