Using the latest technology

Our topographic surveyors are equipped with the latest GPS, Total Station and laser scanning measuring instruments. They will employ both traditional surveying techniques and the latest laser technologies.

Digital delivery of survey data

Our surveyors will also prepare your survey data in a 2D CAD format or as a 3D terrain model which can be incorporated into a BIM model if required. All delivered direct to your desktop ready for you to start work.

Surveys tailored to your specific needs

Starting with early stage detailed discussions, we will give you practical advice and support based on years of experience. We will help you develop your survey brief to ensure the resulting survey meets your specific technical requirements and contains the relevant information for your project.

We want to make sure you receive the correct survey for the work you are undertaking; safeguarding against unnecessary costs for collecting unwanted data or for the need to commission expensive additional surveys to obtain missing data.
