Our Industry Presence

About Bernard

Our industry presence

We are a land surveying company which brings together an enormous amount of technical knowledge and practical experience in the civil engineering industry. 

Our surveyors are leaders in the field of land surveying and geomatics in the UK, in addition to bringing significant international experience from undertaking various railway surveys on projects across mainland Europe, including High Speed Railways in Spain (Alta Velocidad Española), France (TGV), Germany (ICE) and Italy (ETR). 

Within the United Kingdom, over the past decade we have successfully completed several railway surveying projects on the Network Rail Infrastructure, ranging from standard topographical and gauging surveys for a number of railway stations across the country, to working as a principal surveying contractor on complex and multidisciplinary railway construction projects. For such projects, the requirement was to undertake various topographical and engineering (setting out) surveying and mapping services, ranging from track surveys and as-built surveys to various embankment, drainage and track setting out surveys. This includes the installation of modular S&Cs and various other traditional topographical and high precision engineering survey activities (for example, structural gauging for clearance purposes, signal surveys, S&T cable routes surveys, drainage and catchpit surveys and embankment surveys for stabilisation and re-profiling purposes).

Mission and Values

The mission of our business is to provide a first-class land surveying service to clients and businesses first time round. Our company values are based on building an outstanding company reputation while providing a bespoke service and expertise to every land surveying project and inquiry we receive from clients, while strictly adhering to industry standards and specifications.

Why Choose US?

Bernard Geomatics Limited is a chartered land surveying company based in Swindon, Wiltshire, whose objective is to offer and provide new, innovative geomatics solutions and services to businesses and individuals, ranging from simple topographical survey projects to complex and detailed geomatics projects and consultation services, which require the utilisation of modern and innovative geomatics technologies, methods and techniques. 

We are a forward-thinking company with staff members dedicated to the geomatics profession and who are always keen to introduce new, global ways of thinking and working in line with technological evolution and demand for better accuracy, greater precision and lower costs to execute a given project or task.

What makes Bernard Geomatics Limited different from our competitive is that in order to be compliant with the client work brief, before submitting any survey proposal and quotation, we always carry out site reconnaissance (i.e. this is always carried out in person by one of our experienced surveyors by physically visiting the site), for both H&S purposes, accurate pricing and project time estimates. Similarly, as part of our proposal submission process, we always provide our clients with a detailed methodology proposal, explaining how all site and office activities will be undertaken in line with the project requirements and specifications. 

During the survey and data processing stages, we complete five compulsory assurance stages and working procedures, which protect both our business, as well as our clients from any survey mistakes, data anomalies and subsequent project delays as a result of any errors in the survey data and final deliverables, as well as errors caused as a result of misinterpretation of the survey brief and project. requirements.
