Working alongside architects, engineers and construction professionals, we undertake precise topographical land surveys and create accurate topographic survey drawings for your projects.

We make your life less stressful by providing accurate, trustworthy land survey data and drawings allowing you to produce, manipulate and analyse key information regarding your land.

So what is a topographical survey? A topographical survey (sometimes shortened to “topo”) is undertaken by a land surveying company whom utilise specialist equipment to map out areas of land. Whilst on site they will record important information such as location of trees, buildings, heights of land and more. Once back in the office, this information will then be converted into a readable topographical survey drawing. This can then be used to accurately plan out future projects involving that land.

Frequently Asked Topographical Land Survey Questions

A topographical survey (also known as a topographical land survey or topo for short) is a detailed geomatic survey of an area of land.

The survey is typically concerned with picking up both man-made and natural elements. Human-made items include buildings, steps/stairs, drainage, areas of hard standing, etc. Natural elements include ground heights, tree locations, watercourses, etc.

A survey is typically undertaken using a range of surveying equipment including total stations, GPS equipment, handheld lasers, and tape measures.

Following the site survey work, a suite of drawings is produced in CAD (Computer-Aided Design) format. We offer a range of drawing types including plans, elevations, and sections. These can then be used as a basis for your proposed designs.

Topographical surveys can be undertaken to an in-house company standard. A professional survey company, however, will follow standards from industry bodies such as the Survey Association or RICS.

The price of a topographical survey depends on the size and complexity of your property. Important factors that increase and decrease topographical survey costs include the survey area, the detail you require and the quality of the companies undertaking the survey.

We have written a brief article on how much topographical surveys cost.

Typically, most land surveying companies charge between £300 and £1000 for a day’s work on site. Once the survey is completed, time is required in the office to draw everything up. A day’s drawing in the office may be charged at £200 to £500 a day.

Don’t forget to factor in VAT!
