Our depth of staff affords us broad levels of experience in nearly every type of survey, and our historical records provide us with a depth of knowledge throughout the county. Our project approach is as follows.
Communication: Meet with the client to understand the scope of the work needed. Offer insights into our experience within the area to be surveyed. Develop the scope of work as a cooperative effort. Johnston’s Surveying, Inc. (JSI) team has daily contact with the client to communicate project objectives from the development of the scope to the delivery of the final surveys. Our goal is to be a seamless extension of your staff.
Data Gathering: Research our files, public records, utility company inquiries and compile a field data manual with all data to include property maps, right-of-way maps, benchmark control and aerial maps. JSI has compiled a comprehensive collection of reference maps covering Osceola County that cannot be matched by any other firm.
Site Inspection: Review available data, including aerial maps, and visit survey project area. Inspect for recovery of horizontal and vertical control. Discuss with JSI staff for input of information they have regarding the site specifics and site conditions.
Scheduling: Establish a schedule to meet client’s requirements. Focus on work to be completed ahead of schedule to provide for unscheduled delays during project. Timesheets are monitored daily, a crew debriefing takes place every afternoon and final instructions are reiterated every morning.
Field Data: Commence gathering information during field survey, coordinating with project surveyor’s needs and utilizing sound survey practices.
Map Projection: Review and process field data as gathered. Compile base maps first. Identify and obtain additional field or research data information when necessary.
Project Review: Update project managers and review progress drawings with field crew and peer review surveyors. Deliver progress maps to client, if required.
Quality Assurance/Quality Control: Our QA/QC process begins at the project communication stage and continues throughout the project. Having a clear understanding of the objective and creating a methodology throughout the project is key to delivering a quality product in a timely manner. Data files are reviewed, and closure reports are generated and cross checked. An independent review of the final product is done by a licensed surveyor.
Project Closeout: Coordinate with field crew on placement of additional control monuments. Deliver the finish maps and digital product, to client. Backup any data and close out file.
