The Survey team integrates well with the other disciplines within the company to ensure that we provide a total package of service to our clients.

Services Include:

Topographical Surveys

A Topographical Survey is a survey of the ground levels and significant features on a site. From this field information, we produce a plan showing such things as ground levels, contours, buildings, services, legal boundaries, trees and any other features relevant to the future development of the site.

This information is used for any engineering design required and the plan forms the basis of the scheme plan showing the proposed subdivision. The scheme plan is submitted to Council as part of the resource consent application. If the project included proposed new dwellings, the topographical survey is used by the architectural designer to prepare plans.

Cadastral Surveys

Cadastral Surveys establish and re-establish real property boundaries. It is an important component of the legal creation of properties. Cadastral title plans show a property’s legal boundaries, area and dimensions.

The title sheet of a cadastral survey plan shows the plan deposited when the title was created. This could be a simple plan of the property’s boundaries, area and dimensions, a detailed survey plan or a combination of both.

Engineering Surveys

Engineering Surveys are done after a work is completed to prove that the positions are correct, these include:

  • Drainage Setouts
  • Drainage As-Builts
  • Retaining Wall Setouts
  • Road and Driveway Setouts
  • Earthworks Cut and Fill Setouts
  • Earthworks and Quantities
