Our Work

The Industry

Our clients consist mostly of Tier 1 and Joint Venture constructors. We have been involved in some of Australia’s most iconic construction projects, however we also take great pride in our continuing relationships with smaller builders, designers, landscapers and other trades.

At ESO Surveyors, we know the industry we operate in presents many challenges, but we have used these challenges to continuously innovate and improve. We have a proven track record in delivering cost-effective and high-quality outcomes to our clients.

All of our state managers are experienced and qualified construction surveyors who have a deep understanding of industry needs.

M80 - VIC

Sam Thornton, Senior Project Manager, Metropolitan Roads Program Alliance

ESO Surveyors were engaged to manage and perform all surveying activities on the M80 Ring Road Upgrade – Sunshine to Calder Project. Working collaboratively with the Fulton Hogan construction team, ESO were able to solve many challenges during the project, including; performance of laser scanning on Victoria’s 2nd tallest bridge to the strict methodology nominated by the international bridge design consultant, establishment, management and maintenance of machine control processes for earthworks plant and equipment and the implementation of a settlement monitoring regime throughout the project’s extent.  The ESO survey team became an integral and respected member of the construction delivery team; earned through their dedication to always providing the necessary support within the high intensity, 24/7 working environment of a complex major freeway project.

Torrens Rail Junction Crossing Removal - SA

Andrew Arthur, Area Engineering Manager, Cross River Rail

As a Project Manager for Civil Construction projects (Torrens Rail Junction – level crossing removal), I must thank ESO for their class leading expertise and commitment to delivery.  I commend ESO for employing leading edge technology to deliver fast and accurate survey as-built data to allow Train return to service during high pressure track possessions.  This was exemplified via their cloud-based 12D field data transfer – meaning their surveyors spent more time in the field. Additionally, their Amberg Rail Trolley and laser scanning capability provided significant time saving for track tamping/as-builts and also kinematic envelope clearance reports.  I commend ESO for having highly capable staff that are expert data managers and digital problem solvers.  I commend ESO for understanding what is important to Civil Contractors and responding to the demands of rail possession works and around the clock working.

Overall, ESO were very professional, accurate and committed to providing a high level of service and value-add to their client.
