GEOMATIX formerly Lexarksurveys was established in 2002 by Mr. Mark Bugeja after years of experience with one of the major Land Surveying companies in Malta. We pride ourselves on doing the job right the first time! We utilize an extensive error checking routine and internal quality control program on every relevant project.
Our clients include developers, building contractors, corporations, government departments and the house buying public. Our work includes:
Geomatix makes use of modern technology such as electronic measuring equipment and computer aided drafting. Our product can be provided in computer format (*.dwg) as well as the traditional hard copy plans in colour and black and white.
Construction projects are becoming more innovative in nature, building tolerances are tighter and there is increasing use of pre-fabrication techniques. This means that there is a greater requirement for the surveyor/engineer to be able to control construction projects in order to ensure correct and efficient works are carried out.
The surveyor has always appreciated the need for good survey control and there is increasing recognition throughout the construction industry of its importance. Modern contracts split up works into packages and it is vital that all disciplines interface smoothly for projects to be completed on time and within budget.
Experience and Methods
There are two fundamental requirements of survey control. Firstly it has to be of sufficient accuracy to ensure construction tolerances can be met. Secondly it has to be practical and useful for the duration of the project.
Geomatix have an extensive background in providing control for major construction projects. Our experienced staff is able to work closely with clients to gain an understanding of specific requirements and formulate a scheme to provide quality control.
We believe in installing monuments that will last for the duration of the project. Our experience has led us to develop many in house solutions to complex problems in providing quality control that fulfils these requirements.
Field observations are carried out using the appropriate equipment to achieve the required accuracy. We have high specification total stations capable of millimetric accuracy over several kilometers. Our systems support on board data logging for quick and error free transfer of information to computer. All equipment is regularly checked and calibrated.
To ensure reliability, sufficient checks and redundancy are built into control schemes. All observations are entered into a least squares solution to produce final station co-ordinate values. This provides a statistical analysis on the quality of data and gives the surveyor total confidence in work carried out.
Our experience gives us a good understanding of control requirements for many different types of project. By working closely with our clients to identify specific needs, we are able to provide quality control that is appropriate to the project.
