CCS has always been an early investor in technologies that enhance project outcomes, such as production (cost and schedule), quality, safety, and control.
In fact, Carter’s Chief Surveyor, Dale McDuffie, and Sam Carter first undertook the utilization of total station survey equipment in combination with computerized coordinate geometry on the Crescent Center project in 1985. The technology has come a long way in the last three decades. The combination of Topcon Total Station, AutoCAD Version 2.1, and a Gateway 2000 Computer was way out in front of the pack at the time and we strive to maintain that position. Now we rely upon Leica robotic total stations for much of the survey control work, but we keep a Wild T-1 theodolite, and a K&E transit handy for old school methods when required.
