Topographical Survey


A cost-effective way of producing a highly accurate survey plan

Land & Topographical surveys

A topographical survey is a detailed accurate plan identifying both natural and artificial features within a specified area. The plan will show all features such as buildings, boundaries, manhole covers and site levels. The results of a topographical survey are normally delivered in digital format (DWG, DXF). We can also supply scaled paper copies at client’s request.

There are many reasons why a topographical survey will be required, but typically they are used by architects, planners and engineers for the design and planning stages of a project. Whatever the project that you are considering, a thorough accurate survey drawing will reduce the risk of costly downstream mistakes caused by unforeseen issues.

We will work with our clients to tailor a specification and proposal that suits their requirements. Utilising modern Total Station Theodolites, Global Positioning Systems (GPS). Using only experienced land surveyors, delivering drawings to the highest standard.
Survey drawings are supplied in various 2D and 3D CAD formats and paper copies can be provided.
Additional services that we can offer to support your project include measured building surveys, utility surveys, GPR Surveys and CCTV drainage surveys.
