Surveying & Construction
Both the surveying and construction services at McGill provide critically needed services to the successful completion of public and private projects. Our surveying and construction teams support all of the other services we provide, ensuring the successful completion of every design and project. Offering these services in-house allows for greater accountability in project management.
Our survey group has FAA-certified pilots with remote small Unmanned Aerial Systems ratings. McGill’s photogrammetry team can provide high-resolution orthophotos, 3D scans, point cloud models, and digital terrain modeling on suitable project sites. Geospatial deliverables are properly registered and georeferenced, produced to meet current ASPRS Positional Accuracy Standards for Geospatial Data, and signed and sealed by a Professional Land Surveyor. We can regularly monitor projects weekly and monthly for site managers, contractors, and investors.
McGill’s surveying department is committed to providing accurate, high-quality data using advanced instrumentation and software technologies. With extensive experience in the Southeast, our surveying division is experienced on a variety of projects, including public infrastructure and mapping, route surveys for utility design, as-built surveys, construction stakeout, right-of-way retracement, FEMA flood elevation certificates, FEMA flood study cross sections, ALTA surveys, GIS mapping, topographic site mapping, and geodetic control surveys for photogrammetry, as well as site survey control.
Mapping & GIS
Our Geographic Information System (GIS)-certified professionals understand the importance of an up-to-date, accurate, and effective system. The McGill team also has a thorough understanding of the complexities of GIS applications. With our full-service surveying department, we can provide GIS features at survey grade.
We understand that construction is one of the most important aspects of any project, which is why the McGill construction department is managed by licensed Professional Engineers who have decades of experience. Emphasizing sound training and supervision, our construction management staff ensures full compliance from contractors with plans and specifications, schedules, and protocols. Our services include bidding and construction document preparation, pre-construction bidding and conference, contract document preparation, construction contract administration, and change order services.
We pride ourselves on being a trusted advisor to our clients, representing them from project initiation through completion to ensure the final outcome meets and exceeds expectations. Our firsthand knowledge of stakeholders’ interests, along with all aspects of the design and permitting issues, allow us to properly evaluate the contractor’s input and properly advise the owner accordingly.
