Laser Scanning for as-built Renovation and Restoration

Badey & Watson offers scanning services using the newest innovative equipment and technology. Our system provides the ability to capture and process literally millions of precise survey points. Scanning can be conducted indoors, as well as outdoors and under any lighting conditions. The millions of points can be used for making direct measurements from the electronic "point cloud" that the system captures. The data can be processed into very detailed and precise electronic 3-D models and drawings of the subject, while allowing the capture of the survey information without interfering with ongoing processes, operations or construction activities. The products deliverable from the scanning system can be developed into various formats depending upon the client's needs.

Land Acquisition for Conservation

Badey & Watson has had significant experience with land acquisitions and easements for conservation and preservation purposes. While the acquisition of land for these purposes is not unusual, the creation of a conservation easement is often highly technical and unusually complicated. The preparation of descriptions for these easements, with appropriate references to residual rights, parcel boundaries and other related easements, such as might be required for access, is frequently a very involved process. We have prepared many conservation easement surveys and have frequently assisted attorneys in developing appropriate language for this type of acquisition. We often contribute to the proper construction of conservation easements by identifying items relating to physical characteristics of the property that may not be obvious to others involved in the transaction.

Environmental Analysis

The firm has taken an active roll in the environmental analysis of many projects. Our involvement has included project leadership and coordination as well as active preparation of base data and accumulation of available resources necessary for the preparation of the environmental documents. It has also included the completion of many Full Environmental Assessment Forms, several of which required the preparation of extensive Part 3 analysis.
