“Steve is reliable efficient and offers a professional service” – Brian Doogue
“Steve worked with me on a number of high profile earthworks projects during my time at O’Keefe, and produced excellent volumetric data that was key to managing the remediation and offsite disposal. The quality of data was very impressive and we’re now continuing to work together in our respective new roles, where Steve’s volumetric work is instrumental in offering value engineered solutions to my clients”- Ricky Hemmings

PRE-TENDER CUT AND FILL – IDENTIFYING COMMERCIAL RISK
Detailed cut and fill information complete with a desktop study, helps to create accurate tenders, provide certainty and reduce
commercial exposure. The information Grid Point generates will also provide assistance with the proactive programming and sequencing of works.
Grid Point are able to validate the existing design provided to our customers. Grid Point recently prevented a client from being commercially exposed to a £500,000 error due to a design discrepancy, the error was identified and the earthworks value engineered by re designing the projects levels.
IDENTIFYING AND CALCULATING VOLUMES OF DIFFERENT MATERIAL STRATAS PRE-TENDER
Using the bore hole log data from the site investigation reports, Grid Point can determine the volumes for the various stratas. By substantiating the volume of each material, accurate costings can be identified at the tender stage allowing for these costs to be highlighted upfront and eliminating unknown expenditure once the project has commenced i.e. contaminated or hazardous material.
VALUE ENGINEERING – BALANCING CUT AND FILL
Grid Point have assisted clients at the pre-construction stage by balancing the cut and fill on many projects. Optimising the volume of cut and fill eliminates the requirement to import or export material, this exercise can significantly enhance cost savings. Grid Point are available to attend design team meetings in order to facilitate the above.
INTERIM MEASUREMENTS – WEEKLY/MONTHLY UPDATES
Grid Point assists clients with interim updates on their projects earthwork activity. By combining our in-house site engineers with
the latest survey technology we can monitor progress on site and provide a “countdown” volume of material movement. Substantiating the volume of material moved on site helps to ensure payments are easily agreed with the client.
Interim measurements also assist quantity surveyors with cost valuation reports at progress meetings.
DIGITAL TERRAIN MODELLING AND MACHINE CONTROL
Digital Terrain Models provide 3D data that can be combined with the use of machine control. DTM’s and machine control eliminate the need for additional labour, profile boards and rotating lasers resulting in a significant increase in productivity.
