Land Surveying & Reality Capture

To create data and maps for the use of land development, the process of land surveying entails measuring the distances and angles between locations on the ground.

Theodolite technology, such as robotic total stations, is used in traditional land surveying to precisely map an area.

JMH Weiss’s survey team uses traditional land surveying technology combined with more modern technology like aerial imagery, laser scanners & global positioning systems (GPS) to collect data for designing & building software’s.

Types of Land Surveys

  • ALTA surveys
  • As-builts
  • Boundary surveys
  • Construction staking
  • Elevations
  • Property condition reports
  • Renovations
  • Site evaluations
  • Topographic drawings
  • UAV mapping
  • Underground utility locating
  • Zoning reports

LASER SCANNING

3D laser Scanning is a non-intrusive method of gathering precise digital 3D data about the physical state of a project site or an item.

Through data visualization, laser scanning transforms the design, engineering, and construction of large-scale projects.

Laser scanning offers accurate measurements and conditions as opposed to using obsolete construction plans or field surveys.

UAV OPERATIONS

With the use of Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) combined with other technology we can collect data in hazardous or difficult-to-reach places 

Drones are frequently used in the field of GIS (geographical information systems) to survey and map infrastructures and natural resources because of their ability to effectively map large areas.

BRIEF HISTORY

 

JMH Weiss was founded in 1957 by Robert McDermott and William Heiss who created Jennings, McDermott and Heiss (called JMH).

 

JMH provided land planning, surveying, and civil engineering services for developments throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. In 1995 Kevin Weiss, a Penn State graduate in civil engineering and urban planning, acquired the firm and renamed it to JMH Weiss. Over the past 25 years, JMH Weiss expanded its reach to all of western US and Hawaii. JMH Weiss diversified into all aspects of land development including niche services in master planning, entitlement processing, sustainability leadership, environmental consulting, and renewable energy infrastructure guidance, setting JMH Weiss apart from more traditional engineering firms.

“Since joining JMH Weiss in 1995 as CEO, we have implemented a fully integrated collaborative process that unifies all components of the real estate development value chain. It is framed with an engaged and activated ecosystem that helps all JMH Weiss members learn, not just engineering design but, the full lifecycle components impacting real estate development including legal, social, economic, political, environmental, and technical parameters. This wholistic approach allows JMH Weiss to lead a rather otherwise archaic industry with unique attributes.

Being a leader in developing sustainable places, JMH Weiss is dedicated to supporting market transformation towards 100% net zero carbon projects. We understand that full net zero is an ambitious target, but our relentless ambition is to implement energy efficiency and supply from renewable sources wherever we can.

JMH Weiss – The new approach to Developing Real Estate.”
