Topographical surveys (also known as land surveys) have long been at the heart of the Survey Solutions service, providing our clients with an accurate and detailed representation of their site layout including all physical hard and soft features above the ground. This can include, but is not limited to, roads, street furniture, buildings, tree locations and boundary demarcations such as fences and walls.

Our specialist teams of surveyors carry out a variety of topographical surveys across a broad range of project sectors. For us, no survey is too big or too small. We have experience of large-scale land surveys for major infrastructure projects, housebuilding developments and have even completed a project where we surveyed half of an existing UK town to support a local council planning application. We can also provide survey data for smaller projects such as garden adaptations and extensions.

We use the latest equipment and technology to deliver a survey which meets your specific project requirements. Our topographical teams can carry out drone surveys, delivering numerous advantages over traditional methods. Data from our topographical surveys can also be used to aid flood risk assessments and understand potential drainage issues.

All our topographical surveys are issued in 2D and 3D formats as standard with our client feedback highlighting that the level of detail we provide goes above and beyond expectation. Topographical surveys shouldn’t just be considered as stand-alone projects. They are often the foundation for underground and utility surveys, as well as being used in conjunction with the start of the construction phase of the project or with measured building surveys.

At Survey Solutions we offer a start to finish solution and can deliver support with a range of other services including utility surveys, as-built surveys and site engineering schemes.
