Engineering Surveys

From the time that Rennie Golledge was formed in the early 1970’s, engineering setout has been a mainstay of the firm. Now equipped with an interchangeable system of GPS, Robotic Total Stations and specialised survey computers, the surveyors at Rennie Golledge can perform even the most complicated surveys at the touch of a button.
