Surveying and High Definition Scanning

Survey services are an essential element in managing the project lifecycle, from design and construction through maintenance, upgrades and revamps.Wink Engineering has registered Professional Land Surveyors (PLS) licensed in multiple states. Our field crews and crew chiefs is made up primarily of individuals who have worked together for 20 years or more.

Wink’s survey team is well-equipped with instruments and equipment to work field-to-finished projects on land and in inland coastal waters. Our surveying capabilities include:

  • Boundary Surveys / Land Title Surveys
  • Topographic Surveys
  • Hydrographic Surveys
  • Survey and Mapping for the Energy Industry
  • Dimensional Control Survey Services
  • Construction survey, layout and inspection
  • High Definition Scanning Survey

We perform hydrographic surveys and dock condition surveys on an annual or regular basis for a number of industrial plants in the Mississippi River Region. We utilize company-owned vessels, recording fathometer and numerous other location devices to provide accurate, repeatable hydrographic survey information in a cost-effective manner. Our company carries Excess Maritime Liability insurance coverage, for the protection of our personnel and our clients in the performance of marine-related services.

Our high definition scanning survey services help capture as-built data from the field, without disrupting operations.We offer a unique solution that delivers high definition 360-degree by 320-degree photo-realistic panoramic scans to a 3-D CAD surface model.Our high definition digital capture techniques gather a large amount of field information in a very short period of time. The process works by capturing a series of high definition 3D laser scans on site that can be processed for analysis. Wink utilizes high definition scanning services to:

  • Determine “as built” condition and locations within existing unit.
  • Develop demolition drawings, if required.
  • Assist in the development of piping isometrics drawings.
  • Determine piping tie-in locations.
  • Provide a common point of existing data for each discipline.

We offer the distinct advantage of working with a single firm, which integrates onshore survey dimensional control with the laser scanning activity, to achieve the highest degree of accuracy. Benefits of high definition scanning include:

  • Mitigation of risks.
  • Minimizing shutdown periods.
  • Minimizing offshore fabrication activities.
  • Eliminate re-work and reduce costs of retrospective engineering.
  • Reduction of construction/installation manhours.
  • Maximizing field productivity.
  • Minimizing field hot work.
  • Early project completion.
