Energy consultancy firm EPI Group has announced it will collaborate with GN Surveys, which specialises in geographic information systems.
The partnership will launch a new service line, EPI Geospatial, which will provide a range of topographical, aerial, inspection and hydrographic surveying tools.
EPI Geospatial will allow the user to accurately capture and present data in a variety of ways.
Andy Smart, CEO of EPI said: “This collaboration is pivotal and comes at a hugely significant time for EPI. We are thrilled to be working with Gary and his team.
“EPI are confident that his experience and deep understanding of the geospatial and civil engineering industry combined with EPI’s strengths, will bring state of the art technological solutions to the civil engineering, construction sectors and beyond.”
GNS founder and MD Gary Nel added: “Collaborating with EPI allows GNS to continue to innovate, enabling GNS to provide superior services and products to our customers.
“I believe that EPI’s commercial expertise will allow growth beyond what we could have ever imagined before.”
GNS boasts over 21 years’ experience in the civil engineering industry, and over eight years working with drone surveying methods.
Meanwhile EPI, an independent and international company, was founded in 1987 and provides integrated technical services from geoscience, geology, geophysics and geotechnical to environmental services.
