2016 News from Allen Associates Surveying Equipment & Positioning Instruments

The year saw installation and planning for several aquaculture projects in South Africa, utilising Allen’s cutting-edge VitalTemp and CIAC monitoring and control systems.

Furthermore, 2016 brought a veritable hangar-full of UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) Drone Mapping and Aerial Surveying solutions to the Allen’s product categories for the benefit of clientele.

C&C Technologies’ alignment with Oceaneering International Inc. consolidated deep-water applications amongst the range of hydrographic solutions offered via Allen Associates.

2017 Points and Pointers

Amongst highlights for the year ahead are the following:


• UAV Drone Equipment and Training

Discerning surveyors recognise a paradigm shift in the economics of tacheometric surveying while Allen’s Trimble, DeltaDrone and AerialPix offerings will match your every expectation.


• Short Courses

The increasingly popular Allen Associates short training courses provide the upskilling and certification so needed by industry:


  • Civil engineering QA: Soils lab radionuclide gauge safety & operation for RPO Authorities
  • Agriculture Hydroprobes: Certification for compliant research and irrigation planning
  • Industrial Radiography: NDT by X-Ray for Group III Hazmat License compliance
  • OSHA: Laser lore and LSO safety certification for non-ionising radiation activities
  • Engineering survey: methodology from levelling to GNSS and don’t forget drone piloting
  • Aquaculture and aquaponics: from self-study courses to comprehensive fish rancher


These short courses cater for groups at our offices, on-site, or venues across the sub-continent.

• Aquaculture and Aquaponics

With Allen’s commitment to food security, community upliftment, employment and education, we have dedicated resources to AquaVentures in establishing scientifically monitored AquaCentres. Make a call to discuss your farming priorities with the ichthyological professionals.

• Surveying Solutions

From field to office and back our solutions match the job. Whether basic pocket calculator joins and polars or systems on Windows-compatible total stations and GPSs, 2017 carries our promise to continue delivering the means to achieve ultimate construction quality.

If we don't stock what you are looking for in either survey hardware or software - we will source it quickly and economically. Allen’s professional service and support have set an industry standard.

• Survey Equipment Rentals

Allen’s maintain a fleet of scientifically advanced hardware and software for positioning, measuring and monitoring.

Survey equipment rentals include real-time GPS/GIS survey equipment and total stations. The QA selection includes Troxler nuclear gauges, moisture detectors for screeds, timber and crops, Schmidt hammers for concrete hardness and more.
