Volume Surveys & Reporting

Volumetric measurements of quarries, landfill and construction sites

Skye Survey has a wealth of experience in volumetric analysis, having worked for some of England & Scotland’s leading earthworks contractors. Using accurately georeferenced digital surface models (DSMs), we can instantly measure stockpile volumes so our clients can make on-the-spot decisions regarding material quantities and ongoing construction management. Sites can be measured quickly and accurately primarily using drones, or with a combination of ground-based methods.


Through the analysis of our DSMs, we can also provide cut and fill volumes of a given site at any stage of development. In the past we have saved our clients hundreds of thousands by forecasting cut and fill measures and by suggesting alternative site levels that will ‘balance’ earthworks quantities by eliminating the costly need to import or export material. In addition, we can also support our clients with evaluations at a given snapshot of a sites development; providing the cast-iron survey evidence to support applications for payment.
