Peak Surveying Services can produce topographic survey plans, operational phase drawings, geological cross-sections and full geotechnical apparaisals and assessments, tip design, slope modelling, screening design etc.

Planning related services available include the use of satellite aerial photographs and 3-dimensional digital data to provide accurate visualisations of proposed developments enabling potential impacts to be assessed and appropriate mitigating screening works to be designed in.

Zones of visual influence (ZVIs) and line of sight sections are readily produced enabling appropriate screening works, operational limits, impacts and mitigation designs to be accurately defined.

For surface operations using LSS software and our in-house geological, geotechnical and operational planning expertise PSS can provide accurate phasing models for minerals extraction proposals from initial void formation to final restoration.

With reflectorless laser scanning techniques PSS can provide accurate excavation face detail for geological and geotechnical slope stability assessment and modeling purposes.

For underground operations PSS has the capabilities to produce 3D underground mine layout plans – actual and proposed, with superimposed geology.


Quarry Development and Geological Cross Section

Extension to a quarry in Derbyshire showing the future development and a geological cross section.

The cross section data is derived from borehole data, an up to date topographic survey and our excavation design.

Quarry Phasing Cross Sections

Phased long term quarry development.

The plan shows the development stages for the next 45 years with a final restoration landform.

Quarry Development Model

3D model for a total excavation design of a quarry in Derbyshire.

Profiles are in compliance with the requirements of the Quarries Regulations 1999.

Once the design is complete we can supply a 3D fly round of the model, volume calculations and cross sections to name just a few.
