How we work
Each survey project is different, with many different variable. So it is easy to either under-scope or over-specify the project when requesting a quote or proposal. At NPM Geomatics you get the assurance of working with a team of professionals who will provide both scope clarification and suggested specification adjustment, prior to quoting. You will then obtain a comprehensive quote which details what will be done (scope), the accuracy to which the work will be done (specification) and how it will be presented to you (deliverables). In addition you will have a clear indication of when you can expect the deliverables and when each milestone payment will fall due.
Project Programming and Implementation:
Once a quote has been accepted in writing, the project is added to our project and resource planner. We watch the weather carefully to ensure that our resources are used efficiently and get the work done as quickly as possible. All our surveyors are registered with the SAGC. NPM Geomatics carries valid and current PI Insurance, and requires all our teams to adhere to safe working practices and internal safety guidelines. For projects which require levels and heights, NPM Geomatics always provides a minimum of 2 benchmarks which are 12mm iron pegs encased in a substantial block of concrete, or alternatively a stud in concrete paving / kerbing.
Processing and Delivery:
Once the field work is completed, the data is processed in the office and final data deliverables are prepared. The processing of the field measurements is checked at multiple stages for accuracy and consistency. Plans are prepared according to the project requirements, supported with additional sensor data such as images, videos or annotation. Deliverables always include a project report, co-ordinate list and code schedule, and all data are supplied by email or by cloud based file transfer server.
What Client Saying
Our Farmers Union consists of 11 Farmer Associations which fall within the Enoch Mgijima Local municipal area. Our members have had interaction with NPM Geomatics from May this year whilst they were working on the R67/5 road for SANRAL between Queenstown and Whittlesea. Since establishing contact with me (the secretary) regarding ownership and access to properties, they have had a very good professional working relationship with me in accessing the necessary details. Furthermore, I have not had any complaints from the land/property owners of our Union, who they have worked with. We as a Union therefore do not hesitate in recommending them as professional land surveyors when working with farmers.
