Technology - GPS


Pacific Excavation has taken the progressive step of heavily investing in GPS construction surveying and machine control technology. As one of the few Heavy/Civil contractors in Oregon to implement GPS on our project sites, we bring several advantages to the project.

  • Cost Savings to the Owner /General Contractor – GPS technology allows us to build a job “stakeless”, thereby saving the owner thousands of dollars in construction staking expense.
  • Grading Efficiency – the accuracy and speed of GPS integrated/controlled grading equipment means grading is done sooner and cheaper, with re-work virtually eliminated.
  • Safety – with GPS machine operator guidance we are able to eliminate the “on the ground” grade person. One less person on the ground means a safer work environment.
  • People – Not only are we investing in the technology but our people so that we can effectively and efficiently maximize the benefit of the technology at hand.
