Land Surveying

Land surveys are carried out using the latest robotic one-man surveying systems and RTK GPS. Depending on the clients requirement survey control can be set up either using an arbitrary grid and level benchmark, or referenced to Ordnance Survey National Grid using dual frequency GPS receivers. Surveys pick up the general ground topography together with features such as buildings, walls, fences, roads, paths, vegetation, manhole covers etc.

We work all over the Southwest of England including Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset.

In addition to recording ground levels, surveys will also pick up the height and location of overhead services, position of buildings adjacent to the site with eave and ridge heights and the heights of boundary features such as fences and hedges. If required, mahole covers can be lifted to provide the depth of utilitys and drainage. Surveys are recorded digitally, downloaded onto computer and processed using CAD drafting software in either 3d or 2d depending on the clients requirement. The final output is issued to the client as PDF and Autocad DWG files together with a paper printed drawing.

Many jobs are undertaken where there are existing drawings that have to be combined with the new survey. This can sometimes present a challenge, particularly if the existing drawings are on paper, but we can usually find a way to combine the two and present the client with one seamless CAD file that shows all the information.
