Engineering Surveys have recently taken delivery of a 2nd Generation NavVis VLX Mobile Scanning System and have put it to work on two current projects.
The results to date are extremely impressive both in terms of the absolute point cloud accuracy and the resolution achievable in a short observation period. The “richness” of the point cloud and lack of noise makes the output extremely easy to use for Scan to CAD or Scan to BIM applications…… More to follow.
Congratulations to Mike Au who has recently been elected as a member of the RICS.
ESL Director Gordon Ferrier has been added to the list of CIC Certified BIM Managers.
This will assist in projects where the BIM component requires a Certified Manager. CIC are currently the certifying body in HK.
Paul, Jaden and Matthew recently hosted the Polytechnic University survey camp in Sai Kung on board “ESL Survey 2”. Despite the untimely Virus the camp went ahead as scheduled and was enjoyed by all.
After 18 months Design and Construction in Guangzhou “ESL Survey 2” has been delivered.
With a 40 square meter back deck, multiple sensor mounts and launch/recovery systems this vessel allows ESL to deploy a wider range of survey systems than could be accommodated on ESL Survey 1. Our first boat shall still be used for shallow water surveys while “Survey 2” shall be utilised where multiple sensor options such a Multi-Beam, UAV Photogrametry and Laser Scanning are required.

Edward and Mike carried out the SCB Tower Top GNSS configuration survey on 30th Oct 2018. It was a beautiful night with little pollution as can be seen from the photo below.
ESL have recently completed the data capture for the Green Island Heritage Site. This involved the integration of UAV photogrammetry and Laser Scanning.
Following receipt of CAD flying permit data capture for both Aerial and Terrestrial was completed in 4 days. Production of BIM Model is now ongoing.
Our new Faro S150 Laser Scanner has arrived and has been put to work.
It’s small size and mobility complements our Leica P20 scanner which together with our Faro Freestyle gives us great flexibility in choosing the right tool for the job.
Laser Scanning and scan to BIM is currently a growing market sector for ESL.
ESL have been awarded Contract 3117 “Independent Geophysical Seabed Survey Services” by HK Airport Authority.
Dr Rosemary Quinn shall lead the team on this Project.
Paul Chan was appointed as our first “Partner” earlier this year (apologies for the late post).
Our intention is to use the “Partner” model (common with other professional service companies) to encourage a dynamic, go ahead culture within the business.
