Frequently Asked Questions
What is “Data”?
Isn’t data available from the engineer who designed the project?
Engineers are paid to produce a set of plans in 2 dimensions and print them on paper. Currently there are some engineering firms attempting to produce data. We find the extra set of eyes, (your or ours), reduces the chance for error and yields better results.
What does Data cost?
Subdivisions; Pads, streets, and related retentions:
Up to 100 Lots, $40.00 per lot
100-200 Lots, $30.00 per lot
200-300 Lots, $20.00 per lots
Regular customers always pay $20.00 per Lot!!
Commercial and Retail pads and parking:
$800.00 to $1,200.00. Additional retail shops $200-500 more. This is for a 20-30 acre site.
Driving lanes for grader, $500.00 per lane mile.
Daylight to daylight for grader and rover $750.00 per lane mile.
Excessive ramps and intersections additional.
How long does it take to have TOPS process my data?
What if the data is wrong?
What about changes?
What brand of system is the best?
How long will it take me to learn to process data?
Can I use my takeoff as data?
What else can I do with the data?
The data is not just for the machine control system; once the model is prepared it can easily be exported to your grade-checker or surveyors data collector. Whether it’s Survey Controller, Survey Pro, Pocket 3D, SurvCE, SCS900 or others, we can provide you with data.
Take a topo of the site, send it to us, and we will provide you with accurate reports of the amount of dirt moved to date, and what else is left. Take as-built shots, send them to us, we will process them and print them on plan size paper for submittal.
Our process of making 3D site models is quick and efficient
