A recent OCI project which exemplified the benefits of the firm’s survey technology was the construction of a 1.1 million square foot warehouse. Located in the Chrin Commerce Center, Palmer Township OCI was responsible for base map survey, construction stakeout and quality control. Utilizing GPS, robotic and drone equipment we prepared base mapping for this 50 acre development within one week and under budget.
