Road infrastructure projects
MGGP S.A. provides comprehensive design services for road infrastructure projects, which constitute a significant part of civil engineering. We perform multidisciplinary design studies both on a micro and macro scale.
The main recipients of our studies are the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA), Provincial, District, Municipal, and Commune Roads Administrations.
With years of experience and our multidisciplinary team, we provide support for the most complex projects at every stage of their implementation, from conceptual work, through construction and detailed designs, environmental documentation, necessary approvals, decisions, and permits for project implementation (e.g., environmental decisions, permission for the performance of a road construction project), to preparation of tender documentation, and the project architect's supervision throughout the construction works based on the prepared documentation.
The services provided by MGGP S.A. cover the entire life cycle of a project, from the development of a conceptual design, through detailed designs, to contract management, control and supervision of project implementation, and subsequent operation. Close cooperation of our engineering teams as early as at the stage of planning and designing infrastructure solutions enables a multi-level approach to find optimal solutions for human needs and respect to the natural environment.
It is essentially our clients who shape our offer. They introduce their needs to us, whereas we provide solutions, many of which are original and tailored to our clients' specific order, the nature of their business, and unique needs. At the same time, we keep in mind to create added value for the client.
The environment and water management
MGGP S.A. offers extensive experience and knowledge in water management and environmental protection.
We prepare local, regional, and national planning documents, concepts, solution designs, and methodological studies. The necessity to conduct these studies results primarily from the implementation of the requirements specified in the European Union legislation, i.e., the Water Framework Directive, the Floods Directive and the Nitrates Directive. Our projects aim to protect inland surface waters, transitional waters, coastal waters, and ground waters and provide a foundation for steps to reduce the negative effects of flooding and drought. Our company is also experienced in developing protection action plans and protection mission plans of nature reserves, landscape parks, national parks, and the NATURA 2000 sites.
What is more, our experienced team of environmental engineering, hydrology, hydrotechnics, and environmental protection experts ensures that all infrastructure solutions are implemented with care for the sustainability of natural systems and the continuity of the environment by limiting the impact on vulnerable areas and avoiding the creation of barriers to the functioning of nature.
Modernization of the Land and Property Register
As service providers, we support local administration bodies required by the legislation to keep the Land and Building Survey. The scope of modernization works — as one of the tasks related to keeping records — includes, among others, desk studies and fieldwork to update information about land and properties, as well as transfer the information to a digital carrier.
Part of the work involves determining border points and lines of registered parcels of land. This is initially based on the already existing reliable surveying documentation or, in its absence, the data on the boundary lines collected via fieldwork or photogrammetry measurements preceded by determining these boundaries. In most procurement, buildings and premises are also handled simultaneously.
The result of the modernization works is an up-to-date public register of digital and descriptive data on land, buildings, and premises and data on property owners.
The purpose of digitization is to convert content to digital, which allows preserving often unique archival collections in digital form, and then share documents in electronic form. We begin our work by analyzing the client's needs and selecting the technological solutions that ensure the achievement of the anticipated results.
In planning the process, we draw on our years of experience in digitizing various documents (large-format maps, non-standard data carriers, i.e., tracing paper, foil, sheet metal, 19th-century documents). We ensure the security of digitized documentation in transport and at every stage of work, and guarantee the protection of personal data and sensitive data thanks to the implemented information security procedures.
Our experienced staff and automated and manual monitoring at all stages of production guarantee a high-quality end product.
As part of the process, we scan the documents, geocode them based on their content, categorize and segregate them, create their structures, directory trees, analyze the content of documents, create databases of information characterizing the documents (metadata), and provide the client's system with digitized documents and their metadata.
Spatial data processing
With our own spatial data processing center, we provide outsourcing services in this field. While processing raster, LIDAR, vector, and object-oriented data provided to us by the client or obtained by MGGP S.A., we transform raw data into complete spatial information. The scope of our work includes conversion, analysis, integration, and visualization of the spatial data. With specialized tools and modern technologies, we ensure the fast and professional delivery of the assigned projects. Our experts have years of experience in processing spatial data for various industries, formats, and standards, which allows us to deliver the highest quality products.
Formal and legal documentation
For formal and legal documentation, we perform surveying works as part of regulating the legal status of borders, prepare property division maps for road, railway, and gas projects, and provide watercourse lines identification. We provide support in this field through every stage of the project implementation process.
DTM / DSM
The Digital Terrain Model and the Digital Surface Model are basic photogrammetry products. We currently provide them using the point cloud database from the LiDAR airborne laser scanning. DTM and DSM are created by processing and categorizing the points measured with the use of laser technology. DTM is a digital representation of the terrain, while DSM is augmented with objects located on its surface.
The scope of our service includes providing horizontal and vertical control networks, as well as national networks. The implementation of railway projects involves designing, installing, measuring, and aligning all the statutory control networks required at a given stage, such as basic and detailed horizontal railway control networks, vertical railway control networks, and the Railway Special Grid (KOS).
Creation / adaptation of the Topographic Database (BDOT500) and the Surveying Register of Utility Networks (GESUT)
We perform tasks related to the creation, adaptation, or update of the Topographic Database (BDOT500) and the Surveying Register of Utility Networks (GESUT). We run projects involving a wide range of tasks using various software customized to the procurement requirements. The tasks include, for example, converting data to the standard model, updating the information based on surveying documentation, digitizing the resources, and verifying them based on the current sources, including orthophotomaps, field inspection maps, or survey data. We additionally perform synchronization works with the Land and Building Register. To ensure the integrity of the Surveying Register of Utility Networks (GESUT) with survey resources, we also coordinate the initial base together with the entities controlling utility networks.
The result of the work is up-to-date, consistent, and standardized GESUT and BDOT500 databases.
As part of our map preparation service, we deliver base maps for planning and design purposes. They are currently created as 2D or 3D digital maps. Most commonly, they are based on data collected in the Surveying and Mapping Resource Center (ODGiK) or other special units administering survey resources for restricted areas. The input material undergoes a field inspection and a follow-up direct measurement in the field. The preparation of base maps for design purposes involves creating a digital terrain model (DTM), conducting survey analysis, gathering information from the Local Spatial Development Plan (MPZP), and creating statutory control networks, such as basic and detailed horizontal control networks, as well as vertical control networks for railway projects. We also prepare orthophotomaps and survey maps for gas projects.
Project surveying service
As part of our surveying service, we provide comprehensive surveying works throughout the construction of roads and railways (for all industries, including bridges), buildings, energy networks, and pipelines. The scope of our work includes, among others, setting up and measuring the control networks, staking out, taking control measurements, and real-time inventory. We take measurements of sinking and displacements of objects and structures. We prepare cut-fill balances and take periodic measurements of earthworks volume. We develop 3D models for machine control systems. Upon finishing the project, we provide as-built documentation, such as as-built maps, profiles, or track adjustment protocols, depending on the project. We also provide stabilization of border points and road lanes.
River cross-section measurements
The scope of the river cross-sections measurement service includes comprehensive surveying works related to the preparation of Flood Hazard Maps and Flood Risk Maps, in particular, measurements of channel cross-sections of watercourses and reservoirs, measurements of bridges, hydrotechnical structures, and flood banks. We use both standard surveying methods and bathymetric measurements. We also create spatial layers of channel, valley, engineering structures, and flood banks cross-sections.
Our next photogrammetry product. It is a raster image of the terrain developed by processing aerial photographs in an orthogonal projection for any given region. Orthophotomaps are created in real colors (R, G, B) or near-infrared (NIR, R, G) in a given coordinate system and scale. Due to their high level of accuracy, orthophotomaps resemble classic maps, however, with aerial photographs serving as their base, they are much easier to interpret than classic vector maps. They are effectively used as a source of information in many fields, e.g., for monitoring changes in the environment, providing image interpretation, and measuring the distance or dimensions of objects located on them.
We provide classification of point cloud derived from airborne laser scanning. The scope of our work is adjusted to the client's requirements. The technical guidelines may involve both type and number of product classes and delivering additional derivative products, such as digital terrain models, digital surface models, various types of 3D models, and visualizations.
Management and supervision of industrial gas infrastructure construction
