Key Benefits of Having a Topographical Survey

What is a Topographical Survey?

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 are 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.

How Much Do Topographical Surveys Cost?

The price of a topographical survey really 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.

Typically, most land surveying companies charge between £300 and £1000 for a day’s work on site. To follow on from the survey a period of 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!
