You need to have an accurate understanding of your site if you want to avoid costly mistakes.

Our surveyors use laser scanners and drones to accurately measure every detail of your site in 3D.  When you base your design work on our topographical surveys, you can always be confident that you will have all the information you need for a successful project.

What is a topographical survey?

A topographical survey is a centimetre-accurate highly detailed map of your site. You’ll be able to see the position of many features.  Buildings, manhole covers, lampposts, individual trees, steps, walls and fences are all shown, along with surface descriptions, levels and heights. Our surveyors fully measure your site using drones, laser scanners, robotic total stations and precise GPS systems.  These capture Ordnance Survey co-ordinates and levels instantly. Topographical surveys can be delivered in any digital format, such as 2D CAD, 3D CAD, PDF or Revit.

  • Having a 3D survey for our project has been invaluable! It has allowed us to fully understand the complexities of the building from within the office, reducing site visits and queries through the design process. We have also been able to present the 3D model to the client; from existing to demolition to extension.
