1 PEER EGERTON LIMITED TWO-WEEK STRUCTURED WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAMME 2008/9 By Dr Peter Cave

2 Suitable for students contemplating careers in… Architecture Building trades Estate management and forestry Geographic Information Systems Landscape architecture Photogrametry and remote sensing Property development Surveying (land, building, quantity, hydrographic, etc.)

3 The training will include: Induction (Safety, organisation and familiarisation with equipment) Fundamentals of surveying (angular measurement and errors) Geodesy (WGS 84 and transformations - orthogonal and Affine) Instruments (Total Station/GPS/VRS) Land Survey (basic procedure for establishing a traverse) Measured Building Surveys and elevations Hydrographic Survey (when possible) Data processing (MapSuite, AutoCAD and DTM)

4 Induction: Safety – The following topics will be explained in detail) Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Safe environment (how to keep yourself and others safe) Building/industrial sites (site induction requirements) Buildings Quarries and landfill Hydrographic surveys Working near heavy plant and equipment

5 Personal Protective Equipment: Peer Egerton ID Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton ID Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton working clothes Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton working clothes Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton working clothes Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton working clothes Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton working clothes Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton working clothes Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required) Personal Protective Equipment: Students will be issued with: Peer Egerton working clothes Hard hat High visibility jacket Safety boots/shoes Lifejacket (when required) Gloves (when required) Eye protection and face mask (when required)

6 Fundamentals of surveying: Angular measurement – vertical (“z”) θ Distance Vertical displacement (“z”) Vertical displacement (“z”) = Distance x Tan θ

7 Fundamentals of surveying: Angular measurement – horizontal (“x” and “y”) Angle β Distance (d) y = d.sinβ x = d.cosβ

8 Simple geodesy: World standard What do surveyors measure? Relationship of the Geoid to the Elipsoid Why is this important? Transformations

9 Understanding errors: 360º in a circle – 60 minutes in one degree Distance = radius of earth, one minute error  to 1 mile Distance = 100 metres, one minute error  to 29.1mm Distance = 5 metres, one minute error  to 1.4mm

10 Students will be shown how to establish a traverse…

11 And how the observations then translate into a drawing.

12 Instruments: We will provide training in the use of various survey instruments Sokkia Set30R Total Station Sokkia SRX Robotic Total Station Sokkia GPS and VRS systems

13 Elevations: Use of Reflectorless instrument for: Ridge line and eaves Street scenes, and Detailed elevations

14 Elevations: Combination of techniques Refelectorless observations Conventional measurement Photographs

15 Hydrographic Survey: Basic principles explained Equipment used Introduction to techniques Processing data

16 Data handling: Production of simple drawings in AutoCAD Basic training in downloading data to Mapsuite Digital Terrain Modelling and volume calculations Introduction to GIS

17 This presentation outlines the structured work placement opportunity offered by Peer Egerton Limited The application procedure follows… Whether you decide to apply or not, we hope you have found the presentation informative. If so, please forward it to anyone you think may be interested.

18 Applications should be made in writing to: Peer Egerton Limited 5 Dunley Hill Court Ranmore Dorking Surrey RH5 6SX Or to: Applications should be accompanied by: - Your CV - - Range of suitable dates - - A reference from your school - A short sketch (500 words) on “A discussion between Galileo Galilei, Sir Isaac Newton, Captain Cook and Colonel George Everest” (see next slide)

19 Geographers, Surveyors and Timelords: Isaac Newton (25 th December 1642 Julian – 31 st March 1727) was a mathematician and physicist who first postulated that the earth is an ellipsoid rather than spherical (think gravity and apples!). Galileo Galilee (15 th February th January 1642) was an Italian astronomer imprisoned for supporting the heliocentric theory (the earth orbits the sun) of Copernicus. Captain James Cook (27 th October 1728 – 14 th February 1779) was an explorer, navigator, and map-maker who charted the main shorelines of the Pacific Ocean, including New Zealand. Colonel Sir George Everest (4 th July 1790 – 1 st December 1866) was a geographer and surveyor, and mainly responsible for completion of the Great Trigonometric Survey of India.

20 PEER EGERTON LIMITED Following in the footsteps of great men… “If you come to us for work experience, don’t expect to be stuck in a corner doing the filing!”
