RPS was engaged by AECOM to complete detail surveys for design of the Replacement Aviation Fire Truck Facilities at various RAAF bases throughout Queensland, Northern Territory and New South Wales. The surveys included comprehensive detail surveys for design and upgrade of the facilities, and associated infrastructure.
The surveys included establishment of a comprehensive survey control network by GPS. Survey areas included greenfield sites, details of existing buildings and facilities, the surface location of relevant services, as well as the location of underground detail of services by conventional methods.
These surveys were coordinated from Brisbane and used staff from various Queensland and New South Wales offices, trained in the correct use of GFIS coding, and deliverables to Department of Defence specifications. Despite the logistical issues, RPS was able to coordinate all of these surveys to be completed concurrently, and delivered within tight timeframes.
