A topographical survey is a to-scale representation of your planned or current site. This survey depicts the contours and gradients of your site as well as the situation of neighbouring buildings, the width and spread of trees and waterway systems.
These surveys are crucial for the development or modification of land, enabling contractors and architects to visualise the layout of the site and identify any differences between the blueprints and the actual foundations. A topographical survey provides a 3D scaled illustration of the features and boundaries of your site.
Our expert Stoke On Trent surveyors use the latest Leica Total Stations, GNSS equipment and high-grade 3D laser scanners to provide effective and accurate surveys in accordance with best-practice methods. Our state-of-the-art technology allows Fosse Surveying to vastly reduce the risk of human error.
Once our equipment has collated the data from the site, the scans are uploaded to our AutoCAD software, which then sketches 2D and 3D illustrations of your site and its measurements. All illustrations are available in a number of formats including DX, DWG and PDF.
Every project we carry out in Stoke On Trent is managed in adherence to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) standards.
The preparation and management of your site can be streamlined, be made more productive and enhanced through the implementation of a Topographical survey. These surveys assist in the identification of any potential issues or hazards that may not have been accounted for, helping to avoid expensive and time-intensive errors further down the line.
Topographical surveys also establish the strength and durability of your building, providing your contractors with essential knowledge regarding the condition of your foundations. These surveys also provide a historical record of your site and an outline of its boundaries, protecting you against land ownership disputes.

The cost of a topographical survey is subjective and completely dependent upon the requirements of your project. This can be influenced by the level of detail you wish to include in the final product and also incorporates the time spent on site. For an exact quote, please get in touch.
