topographical and Building Surveys from just £299

A topographical survey, or land survey, is a site assessment with accurate measurements and a record of any physical features. It includes the levels and contours across the survey area, and also the features within it. They can be a useful record of the “as-built” information and also a fundamental foundation stone for proposed building work or landscaping.

What'S on a topographical survey?

Our standard topographic land surveys display the position of ground level surface features such as building footprints, walls, trees, fences, manhole covers and invert levels, to name a few.

Supportive height data such as ridge and eave heights, overhead lines and boundary height information will be picked up to aid the planner and architects in designing and creating 3D models for feasibility studies and visuals for their clients. All our surveys also include contours to easily identify the lay of the land.

Total stations and laser scanner are used to collect point data during the survey. A post-survey analysis of the data is then carried out and drawings are produced that reflect the results. Drawings are drawn to scale and can be provided in a number of different formats, the most common being DWG, DXF and PDF.
