HBH Land Surveying is proud to announce the opening of our Prince George office and branch manager Darren Kent, BCLS. We look forward to servicing the survey needs of Prince George and surrounding area.
To accompany our ventures into scanning the deeps, we've gone to new heights as well! HBH has acquired a UAV photography platform and all the processing goodies for us to create high resolution aerial photos and intensely detailed phtotogrammetry based topographic surveys. This allows us to deploy and gather information for certain projects at (excuse the pun) a whole new level by quickly gathering data for very short term site interruption compared to traditional surveying.
High quality orthometric photos can be produced for site monitoring and presentation purposes, or for your project that satellite imagery may have forsaken and your data suffers from poor quality or age. The photogrammetry options give you highly detailed 3d models for projects allowing for short interval volume calculations or site plans to be produced more efficiently and accurately.
Our equipment is project scalable as well, meaning if your project is a photomosaic for a land development presentation or an active gravel pit spanning square kilometers and needing multiple volumes and monitoring, our equipment and crew can (excuse the pun again) rise to the occasion.
Transport Canada's regulations are in a constant state of flux for UAV's and are currently very strict for commercial UAV's. We've adhered to those guidelines with a well trained crew, insured equipment, and the appropriate processes and certifications in place prior to our flights. Making us one of the few local companies able to deploy in the northwest.
Give us a call or head to the Contact Page at the top, and we'll answer your questions about how we can complete or augment your projects.
Over the past several months, HBH has been testing and streamlining an exciting expansion to our surveying capabilities and we're pleased to roll out our new bathymetric survey equipment. Attached to a small boat this specialized depth sounding equipment in conjunction with our survey grade GPS instruments allow us to accurately chart the underwater topology of bodies of water.
This expansion in capability will allow us to take on basic depth charting and other challenging work that demands an integration of land and water topology.
If you're interested in acquiring a water based survey or have questions related to the technology, please head over to the Contact Us page and drop us a line.
HBH has always taken safety seriously. Two years ago we began revise our already rigorous safety program to fit better with the industries we worked alongside. The fruits of our labors were realized this past August when HBH's safety program was reviewed and awarded the BCCSA's Certificate of Recognition (COR).
An excerpt from the BCCSA's Website:
"The Certificate of Recognition (COR) is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes companies who develop and implement health and safety and injury management systems that meet an industry standard. The program rewards employers who take a strategic approach to workplace safety and are committed to reducing both the human and financial costs of workplace injuries."
HBH is delighted that our safety program is now formally recognized and excited to maintain this certification with annual audits into the future.
We have openings for our upcoming busy season! We are looking for experienced survey field and office technologists to work camp-based shift work in northern BC. Schedule is two weeks in, two weeks out. We are accepting resumes by email until May 2016.
