Survey Equipment

Many construction jobsites are now taking advantage of grade control systems, a technology that makes the grading process both simpler and more accurate. 

Overview On Grade Control

Jobsite grading is a crucial first step in preparing land for development, as it plays a critical role in laying out a mapped overview of the site that can be used throughout a project. 

When grading a jobsite, grade control systems utilize a field computer and antenna to read GPS data on the site, like elevations, contours, and positioning information. This system reduces margin for error and can boost the speed at which a site grade is completed.
