Precision Layout, Surveys and Locating for Construction
As construction projects become larger and more complex, Challenger’s relationships with owners, architects, engineers, construction, and building services providers have also evolved. Our construction partners recognize more and more that our support and spatial expertise can add value during all project phases.

Gathering data is only the beginning. We work closely with our construction partners to process and analyze data collected for use in a wide variety of applications used by the architect, builder, and owner.
