Site Surveys: Why Are They So Important?

A comprehensive site survey is essential to the success of any installation project, big or small. It enables you to assess the condition of the land and accurately map and measure the terrain.

At Trackway Solutions, we perform a thorough survey at the start of every project. By carrying out a detailed inspection of the site, we can work out exactly what you require and recommend the safest, most suitable solution for your project.

What is a site survey?

In simple terms, a site survey is a fact-finding mission. It enables our expert team to visit the location and physically ‘walk the job’. By getting boots on the ground, we can properly evaluate the landscape and check for any potential issues.

Once we have a better understanding of the local topography, we can plan the best route and determine the number and type of panels required for the project.

Why are site surveys so important?

Whether it’s for a film set, scientific dig or an outdoor concert, every site and every project is different. When you’re choosing a trackway, you need to consider exactly what you’re going to be using it for – temporary roadways, temporary walkways or car parks – how much space you have to work with and what vehicles are going to be running on it.

By performing an extensive survey, our experts can see for themselves precisely what is needed for the job and make accurate, informed decisions. We’ll ask questions, walk the site with you and take a deep dive into exactly what it is you’re looking for.

Temporary trackway is often deployed in remote or hard-to-reach areas, and each project poses its own unique set of challenges. A thorough inspection of the site allows us to assess any potential issues with the landscape itself, such as gradient and terrain, as well as any man-made obstacles, like gateways, power lines and fences.

With a proper review of the environment, we can plan the safest, most efficient route and ensure you get the best possible temporary roadway solution.
