November 2020 NewsletterElevate Survey Supplies
As the year quickly wraps up, we have be been inundated with orders for our reliable survey stakes. With the large volume of orders and supplier shipping delays caused by COVID-19, we apologise for any inconvenience caused by waiting periods and thank you for bearing with us during this busy time.
We expect to have new stock of our survey stakes ready to go within the next two weeks and will be completing any back orders as soon as possible.
Have you viewed our new range of surveying accessories announced in last month’s newsletter? Newly released products include adaptors, aerial targets, prisms, pole tips, tribrachs, scanning targets and accessories, aluminium and carbon fibre poles, tripods and bipods, staves, levelling staff accessories, and pillar plates.
Putting Our Products to the Test
It’s easy to choose the cheaper surveying marking spray, but you may be choosing a product that’s less value for money, bad for the environment, and ultimately more expensive for your company in the long run.
We put Dy-Mark’s Spray & Mark (350g) and Signet’s Spot Marking Spray (350g) to the test – two products seemingly similar, yet very different. Below are the results:
- Less value per can,
- Higher wastage and environmental impact, and
- Cans empty faster.
- 30% more value per can,
- Less wastage and environmental impact, and
- Cans take longer to empty.
Your Guide to the 2020-21 Federal Budget
Released by the Treasurer in early October, the 2020-21 Federal Budget provided one of the largest boosts to infrastructure investment in recent history. So, how can it affect surveyors?
The Budget has provided additional funding to Infrastructure Australia over the next four years, allowing the 2021 Australian Infrastructure Plan to expand. It has provided funding to support Australian communities, inclusive of $14 billion in new infrastructure projects to provide 14,000 future jobs, including within the construction and surveying industry.
