O’Dell Engineering has been contracted to survey and map existing utilities at Facebook’s Silicon Valley Campus using a “technology-first” approach involving a combination of our traditional survey, 3D LiDAR scanning, UAV aerial orthophotos and GPR utility locating services for the General Contractor. O’Dell Engineering was also selected to provide detailed 3D modeling and coordination between existing and proposed backbone underground utilities for the site utility contractor. Working very closely with the Engineer-of-Record, O’Dell Engineering was also able to suggest design solutions to achieve better constructability for the construction team. There has been significant value realized from migrating our high-precision survey and measurements into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) environment. The combination of various cutting-edge survey technologies have identified issues prior to the start of heavy construction when issues and resolution are most costly and most difficult to address.
