Our Survey team integrates with the engineering disciplines within Fraser Thomas, as well as external designers and architects, to ensure that we provide a total package of services for you.

Topographical Surveys

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

This information can be used for engineering designs and plans, which form the basis of a scheme plan showing a proposed subdivision. Scheme plans are submitted to Council as part of a resource consent application. If the project includes 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 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
