Topographical Surveys, also known as Land Surveys, are an essential component of any successfully planned development. They allow industry professionals such as engineers, architects, builders and planners to understand the spatial information, capabilities and limitations of the site they are working on.


What is a Topographic Survey?

A topographical survey gathers the spatial data of a site and identifies man-made and natural features by mapping out their contours and gradients. These features include buildings, boundaries, trees, walkways, utility structures and more.


What is the importance of a Topographic Survey?

A Topographic Survey can help avoid errors and wasted time during a project by making sure that all details are correct during the planning and design process. 


How do we conduct our Topographical Surveys?

Our topographic land surveys can differ based on the level of detail required for your specific project. We use the latest Leica Total Stations which ensures that our surveys are conducted at the greatest possible accuracy.
