Adelaide is a beautiful city!  Our surveyors have enjoyed working around the Festival Centre, just off King William St, Adelaide.  The first image is a photo, the next two are images produced from the point cloud produced from our 3D Laser Scanner. 

This information will be used for the Adelaide Festival to design their show piece venue for the 2021 Festival.

What a privilege to be in involved with the setout for construction of the Vietnamese Monument, situated on Memorial Drive, Adelaide.

An apt and strong reminder of the struggles the Vietnamese Community had to begin their new lives in Australia and their optimism looking to the future.

North Terrace, State Government $70m Tram Extension and Up Grade.  Michael Grear Surveys completed the initial Engineering Survey.

The project involved a full and extensive Engineering Survey of the 2300m Road Corridor, boundary to boundary in an extremely complex urban environment.  This included working around extreme traffic and public transport movements, night work requirements, major Adelaide Community events and strict timelines from the client.

We took advantage of using our 3D Terrestrial Scanning with two main advantages; being an incredibly effective tool in acquiring data, and also improved safety by reducing the amount of time one of our surveyors had to spend on the road corridor.  With the combination of the 3D Scanner and traditional theodolite technology gave us point and model accuracy perfect for this survey.

Some key statistics-

Over 66 kilometres of survey strings

Over 39 kilometres of Underground service strings

35000 survey points in addition to the 24 gigabyte of point cloud data and 3d CART data underground services.

This project was run by highly experienced, motivated Surveyors, who ensured a successful and timely project.

Congratulations to all of the Michael Grear Surveys Team. An efficient job completed and the prestigious award of Technical Excellence won.

We spent a day in the Adelaide Town Hall bell tower recently; scanning the inside of the interior of the tower to gain information to enable the bell tower to be refurbished to improve the acoustics.  As you can see from the pictures, the bells are large and space is tight.  But look at the view! 

Surveyor, Sir Colonel William Light earmarked the one acre site for use by Council for the Adelaide Town Hall, in his original plan for the city of  Adelaide. It was initially used as a produce market selling hay, corn, butter, poultry, eggs, fish and vegetables.  

On May 4, 1863 the foundation stone for the Adelaide Town Hall was laid and was cut from the Tea Tree Gully quarry. The Albert Tower was constructed over this stone, in which the bell tower, and later the clock were positioned. This structure was significant as it was the only civic building outside of England to house a full peal of eight bells. 

The Adelaide Town Hall, Albert Tower Bells have marked significant occasions throughout the history of the city; including for the pop band, ‘The Beatles’, as they were cheered by a crowd of thousands while they were standing on the balcony above.
