We create fast and accurate topographical surveys for greenfield, brownfield and redevelopment sites, detailing the natural and built environments at the vital early stages of a development.

Topographical Surveys

What is a topographical survey?

A topographical survey (sometimes known as a land survey, site survey, topo, or level survey) is effectively a bird’s eye view or large-scale map of an area of land. It is also a vital requirement during the early stages of any development.

A topographical survey details the natural and built environment and can have a significantly positive impact on the development and progress of any project. It is therefore vitally important that they are carried out in a timely and efficient manner, with the appropriate level of accuracy.

A topographical land survey will typically include the footprint of the existing buildings and structures, trees, boundary details, ground surfaces, service covers, basic drainage details and detailed level information. We also tailor our surveying services to fit our clients’ needs, so additional information such as the features adjacent to the site or underground services can be included.
