Geomatics, surveying technology and building surveys

Canton of Tessin, Switzerland

Monitoring and surveying activities, design of 3D models and mapping of existing structures to support design and construction companies.


The geomatics and surveying activities - often done at night - which are usually coordinated directly with the contractors and designers, enable a progressive recording of all relevant data on site for the construction and controlling of the projects.

If necessary, our teams of engineers work at several project locations simultaneously. Our surveying specialists guarantee maximum efficiency and streamlined processes for the main project manager.

Various mandates include a wide range of monitoring and surveying activities in the execution phase, but also supplementary assignments such as the design of 3-D models and mapping of existing structures to support design and construction companies in projects of SBB, ASTRA and in building construction.
