As part of our constant pursuit to better meet client needs, Compass strives to continually provide highly trained professionals who are equipped with top of the line technology. With a high demand for construction surveys, Compass has acquired Leica Sprinter 250M digital levels which greatly increase the standard for construction site levelling. The Leica Sprinter 250M increases productivity and quality in construction surveying by increasing both the accuracy and the speed of the measurements performed. With a built-in memory and calculation software that includes Delta Height, Line Levelling, as well as Cut & Fill applications, the potential for human error is reduced and the construction survey is completed in less time.
