Construction Staking and As-Built Surveys: Acklam personnel perform the construction staking as needed for a client’s construction contractor to prepare the pipeline right of way for the installation of single or multiple pipelines. Acklam will also support the project by reacting to unforeseen needs and or re-staking the pipeline centerline(s) as necessary to prevent problems or down-time. Acklam is also skilled in the collection of all pipeline related installations and or fixtures constructed during this phase of the project. Acklam’s collection of the as-built data is an important part of the client’s own pipeline database which can be delivered in a variety of formats as needed to support the record location of the pipeline, unit tracking for pay items to the contractor, operations and maintenance records, anomaly locations and integrity management. Acklam understands the importance of the accuracy of all record information and performs regular office and field checks which are incorporated for additional quality control during construction and record survey process.
Acklam personnel perform the following steps when working with tunnel surveys. A preliminary surface survey which allows the alignment of the tunnel to be transferred underground. Next, in order to level the surface, the levels would be transferred underground at the ends of the tunnel from the nearest benchmark.
