The country is currently gripped in the midst of challenging circumstances. Due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, people across the United States are being forced to reconsider how they live their lives and conduct their business. For the builders and residents of our corner of Texas, that means rethinking the way in which traditional land surveys are completed. Land surveying during COVID-19 in Guadalupe County, TX has changed. Here’s how.
For the most part, those people who conduct land surveys gather information on their own. They take measurements and walk the land by themselves, or possibly in pairs. However, just because the men and women who perform land surveys operate independently doesn’t mean that the industry hasn’t adjusted significantly.
Be conscious of equipment use
As with any professional, land surveyors have several tools they use to perform the various tasks required of their profession. What’s more, land surveying takes most people all over their specific area of expertise. As a result, when you’re carting around equipment throughout areas, the risk of infection and cross-contamination increases considerably. We make our employees are thoroughly cleaning out their instruments after each use. That goes double for equipment that could be shared across teams.
Remote customer communication
The capacity to talk with the customer isn’t anything new. In fact, it’s probably a benefit to the industry that land surveying during COVID-19 in Guadalupe County, TX can utilize so many options for communicating with clients. While your surveyor performs their survey in a traditional manner, they can communicate the results in a variety of ways. They can deliver their thoughts via email with photo attachments included. They can also provide them through no-touch handoffs. And, of course, if you should have any questions, you can pick up the phone and call them to get answers. Tech-savvy clients can also use video communication to figure everything out.
Increased field communication
With everyone needing to work more independently, it’s more important than ever for surveyors to ensure they’re communicating more frequently than usual. This helps the team pass along information more easily, eliminate potential missed avenues of business and generally keep everything on the same level as it was before the pandemic.
