Accurate surveying is the foundation of our work at Manhard Consulting. Our surveying specialists use the latest technologies in the collection, integration and management of data specific to a site. With good baseline data, our teams are able to view, understand, question, interpret and visualize data in various ways.

With the data collected and shared with our in-house teams, we can assist you in visualizing change, understanding obstacles and managing conditions for the success of your projects.  Our surveying and geospatial teams have been helping clients solve problems and put a solid foundation under their projects for decades.

manhard consulting clinker surveyOur surveying team was approached to measure the storage for volumes so that a client could more accurately track the amount of clinker they are moving. Clinker is what is created after quarried rock is heated and before it is crushed to become concrete mix. Their most current method of measurement was with a tape and level which could take up to 2 days to complete. Because this plant operates 24-7-365, standard survey methods would not work in this environment.

Our team scanned the site and came up with a solution that was quicker and provided highly accurate, usable data.



Our teams have embraced the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, commonly known as drones, to help provide real time, highly detailed data for a site and surrounding areas in a matter of minutes rather than days. This detailed data in combination with our in-house software tools helps us create surveys, 3D scans and imaging more quickly and efficiently.


high definition scanning manhard

High-Definition Scanning, paired with aerial drones, brings survey data to life. This advanced technology collects spatial imaging with millions of point coordinates accurately and efficiently. By detailing the existing conditions of any site, engineers, architects and designers can make informed decisions and avoid unforeseen circumstances, while adding value and a level of safety to projects.
