A Topographical survey, also known as a land survey, is an exact representation of your development site. This survey will map out the contours and gradients of your land as well as identifying neighbouring structures, drainage systems and trees.
Topographical land surveys help to depict the layout of your site and aid the determination of the development’s boundaries. They also help with the identification of any potential differences between the initial designs and the actual foundations. Land surveys are essential for the development and modification of land.
Using state-of-the-art Leica Total Stations, GNSS equipment and 3D laser scanners, our expert surveyors at Fosse Surveying conduct our surveys to best practice. Our first class equipment enables us to deliver surveys of the highest quality, precision and greatly reduces the possibility of human error.
After your site has been fully processed, the scans are then transferred to our AutoCAD software where your dimension drawings are created in both 2D and 3D. These are available in a variety of formats including DX, DWG and PDF for your convenience.
All of our Leicester projects are conducted to the royal institute of chartered surveyors (RICS) standards.
Topographical surveys help the management of your project by discovering any potential problems, hazards or obstructions that may have not been taken into account during the initial planning stage. This process saves a considerable amount of time and enables the development of contingency plans, preventing costly mistakes.
Land surveys outline your property’s boundaries, providing a historical record of the development and evidence if any disputes over land ownership arise.
The height and position of surrounding infrastructure

A land survey supplies an accurate representation of the condition of your project site. These surveys determine neighbouring infrastructure and any potential restraints to the boundaries of your project that could affect completion.
