  • Coaching & mentoring less experienced Survey Engineers.
  • Ensuring equipment is serviced and calibrated
  • Ensuring that project set-out is performed accurately and in accordance with the design and spec.
  • Ensuring each project survey design data is obtained before the project starts and checking geometry and dimensions of designs to make sure that any potential design faults are identified and resolved.
  • Assisting with improving processes/systems in the survey department

 Key Skills & Experience
