Other Services That May Be Useful

Topographical Surveys

We can survey the land around your building picking up key bits of information such as land heights, tree locations, outbuildings, changes in surface, drainage, and more.

3D Scanning

By default, we utilise 3D scanners on our measured survey projects to produce accurate 3D point cloud files. These are then translated into floor plans, elevations and sections etc.

Utility Scanning

Working alongside our topographical surveys, we undertake underground utility scanning to help work out what is under the ground on your project.
