Tank Settlement Survey - Settlement Survey

Tank Settlement Survey

The ground, much like water, flows. You never notice it until high dollar items are in danger of breaking down because of ground settlement. Tank settlement can be a serious, dangerous, and costly issue. The good news it can be prevented and managed with a tank settlement survey. Darling's 3D laser scanning services can save a business substantial time and money. With an accurate 3D laser scanning model showing the as-is conditions, we help you cut overall design and construction time, avoid costly RFI's and construction delays and provide precise volumetric and topographic information.

3D laser scanning is a fast and safe way to capture as-built information for mining, oil production, construction sites and more. If you want to get ahead of the consequences of tank settlement, you should give Darling a call.


We create industry standard maps from the point clouds. The level of detail and accuracy far exceeds the capabilities of traditional survey methods, and the money saved from utilizing this information exceeds the cost of our services.

We specialize in pre-construction and construction as-built documentation in 3D, including 3D laser scanning, post processing and building information modeling (BIM) for construction.  This is the fastest, easiest and least expensive way to get an accurate "as-built" model.


Performing 3D laser scanning of a roadway provides engineers with more information about the existing conditions.  Our data mining capabilities allow us to extract the data from the point cloud.  This reduces site visits and total project cost.


Civil engineers that utilize our 3D laser scanning services receive Leica TruViews of every scan, allowing them to virtually visit the site and take measurements from their desktop.
